Set in the 1920s and 1930s, The Flamboyant tells the life story of Lenora Demarest, an American beauty intent on achieving fulfillment as the first aviatrix in her adopted country of Puerto Rico.

Inspired by the life of a historical figure, and set against the vibrant backdrop of colonial politics, The Flamboyant traces the inner life of a quintessential modern woman -- spirited and determined to live out her dreams. In language that captures the great natural splendor of rural New York as well as the Caribbean, it also evokes, in exhilarating colors, the magic of early aviation and pays tribute to an American heroine ahead of her time.

I thought this was a nice, quick enjoyable read - I say quick, as I think half the pages were actually blank LOL!

I loved the description of the places and houses, and thought Lenora had a very interesting life. Would have liked to have heard more about her after the 'new years eve' event, but I guess the epilogue summed it up quite well!
