    When a confident woman walks into a room, everybody there is aware of it. The way she moves and speaks indicates to all those present that here is a woman who knows who she is and where she's going, a woman who is at ease in any situation, confident in herself and her role in life and business.

    Amy Johnson's greatest achievement was her solo flight to Australia, made within a year of her obtaining a full pilot's licence. (At the time she was the only woman in the world to hold a full ground-engineer's licence.) In the remote jungles and islands of south-east Asia, her flying ability and engineering knowledge enabled her to complete the flight.

    Isabella has been called a genius, crusader, patriot - and bigot. She brought law and order, founded universities and libraries, patronised the arts and sciences - while behind her lay the shadow of the dreaded inquisition. Hers was a remarkable life of cruelty tempered by enlightenment.

    As the 100th anniversary of the fateful night approaches, Palmer follows up innumerable conflicting stories and theories that still, to this day, surround the doomed liner. Charles Herbert Lightoller, Palmer’s great uncle, was the highest-ranking surviving officer from the disaster. It was only after the great man’s death in 1952 that his sister, Gertrude, Palmer’s eccentric grandmother, began to hint to her young grandson of the contradictory accounts of both her brother’s supposed heroism and his suspect testimonies at the investigations into the sinking.
