Leaving Earth : On August 1, 1933, the famous aviatrix Grace O'Gorman and the inexperienced Willa Briggs take off in a tiny Moth biplane to break the world in-flight endurance record. Their plan: to circle above Toronto for 25 days and land at the opening of the Canadian National Exhibition. Set during the Depression with war looming, Leaving Earth is a remarkable evocation of an era when women sought to escape the limitations of their gender by embarking on perilous adventures. Grace and Willa seem to cast a spell on those below, especially Maddy, a young fan who lives on Toronto Island; her mother, an amusement park fortune-teller; and Grace's jealous husband, Jack, who holds the endurance record his wife is trying to break.
