(4.5 stars) This is an exquisitely written book that weaves together three iconic transatlantic crossings -- the first non-stop flight across the Atlantic in 1919, the 1845 crossing by Frederick Douglas to rally Irish sympathy to the abolitionist cause, and the 1998 trip by George Mitchell to broker peace between Northern Ireland and Britain. This is not a linear or fast-paced story, but rather one to savor as the seemingly disparate threads eventually come together to create a tapestry of past, present, and future.
