An interesting story about a man who is dying after his cancer returns. He is a pilot and loves to fly. He tells the Hospice lady not to bother with him because he plan on taking his plane up and never returning. She is a recently retired music professor and resent being put out to pature. She doesn't know how to have fun and Mike shows her how to fly a kite and how to fish. It is a beautiful story of one person helping another.

It was a good story, wasn't a can't put it down book, but entertaining. Lynn Austin is one of my new favorite authors.

Lynn Austin is one of my favorite authors ever... so it was sad that I didn't like this book (her first novel) very much.
The story was a little flat... and didn't have hardly any of the thick historical story lines I have come to know and love from Ms. Austin.

Near the end, the story line became very touching... and faith renewing, though -- so it was all worth it!
Very glad to have read it.

I just couldn't get into it. It was predictable and I was a little disappointed, especially since Lynn is one of my favorite authors.
