Cunniffe—High flying adventure and romance fuel Barnstormers, a lush and unforgettable story set just after the
First World War.
It’s 1923 — the barnstorming era, where pilots fresh from the airfields of the Great War made a living taking
civilians for joyrides in the sky for a small fee. One such man claims to be Preston Pike, a dashing war hero
pilot, who has flown his way across the U.S. Southeast scrounging for customers while fleeing from his own
demons. When a telephone operator says that a big crowd will be awaiting him in nearby Barnville, Preston races
Instead of eager clientele, though, he finds himself crashing a wedding, and the party isn’t exactly thrilled.
But when Claire, the would-be-bride, decides to make an early getaway, Preston unexpectedly becomes a Clyde to
this vengeful Bonnie.
Along the way they bond, confessing their secrets and engaging in a romance for the ages. Will all that change
when the Pinkerton agent following close by finally closes in on them?
Barnstormers is an intimate portrait of love and war — and a meditation on the dangerous level of trust required
in both romance and aviation.
