Set in South Africa, Fly Away Home is the story of two families dealing with family issues. Monica and her husband Zac have two adopted children, but want one of their own. Monica's friend, Francina, also has an adopted child who feels obligated to care for a sick aunt. I found this book simplistic and superficial. Hoping for a flavor of South Africa through a good story, I was disappointed on both accounts. The language is bland and never draws you into the setting, plot, or characters.
The end of the series, which has nicely wrapped up the lives of the inhabitants of the town of lady Helen, in South Africa . It was a fun series to read, full of great characters and their friendships..
Just ok. I learned a bit about South Africa in the process of the story and I admit the storyline had promise but the way in which the author tells it lacked zest or creativity. I didn't realize it was a series and that actually didn't affect it. You can read it easily as a stand alone.
Definitely not the best one in the series. In fact, it felt like an afterthought and like the author was rushing things. Characters' personalities were still consistent, though, so that was good. But the first two books were the best of the series, for sure.
Well, I didn't realize this was book #4, though I don't really think I missed too much there in the middle. Pretty good, but ties up way too nicely in the end. Not much of a "thinking" book - more of a "brain candy" type of thing.
Couple living in South Africa deal with infertility. Will they learn to accept that her 2 adopted boys will be their only children, or will they always yearn for a biological child?
