Circling the Sun by Paula McLain
This is a fictional biography of Beryl Markham who grew up a wild child on an African farm with her father who was a race horse trainer. Very much wanting to be her own person she ignored the English proprieties and forged her way in a man's world as a woman horse trainer. Her looks made it easy for her to make friends in the rich circles of society but bad choices also made her an outcast. Overall an interesting but sad story of a girl who never knew a mother's love.
