Fly Away is the story of three women who have lost their way and need each other - plus a miracle - to transform their lives. An emotionally-complex, heart-wrenching novel about love, family, motherhood, loss, and redemption, Fly Away reminds us that where there is life, there is hope and where there is love, there is forgiveness. Told with her trademark visceral storytelling and illuminating prose, Kristin Hannah reveals why she is one of the most beloved writers of our day.

I’ve been going through a hard time lately with family members and this book helped me wrap my mind around how relationships can be redeemed.

Without spoilers, Liane has written a book that captures the essence of grace--the love that forgives and isn't judgmental. There are so many lovely scenes of this ineffable quality in this book that it made it a joy to hear.

  • Born a Crime

  • Length: 8 hrs and 44 mins

One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.

I expected a good story because Trevor Noah tells a good story--but I didn't expect the vulnerability, resilience, love and redemption. Excellent job conveying the humanity in all of us.
