Publisher's Summary

Wilhelmina Brewster has been a college music professor for 41 years, devoting her life to her career and never marrying. Now, after her forced retirement at age 65, she is mourning her loss and searching for something to fill the empty hours. 

Widower Mike Dolan is a pilot and World War II veteran who has always lived life to the fullest. When medical tests confirm that his cancer has returned, he makes plans to take a final flight in his airplane rather than become a burden to his family. Wilhelmina accidentally learns of Mike’s final plans, and when she discovers that he isn’t a believer, she knows it’s her Christian duty to talk with him about her faith. But although she has been a lifelong Christian, she feels totally inadequate for the task of witnessing to an unbeliever. 

Mike and Wilhelmina are two very different people - one figuring out how to live, the other how to die. Yet they will find themselves journeying together as they search for answers to life, loss, and faith in God.

So so

I am a Lynn Austin fan. I anxiously await each new book. I’m slightly disappointed in this one. I guess the story line just wasn’t my taste. The beginning was very slow and I had a hard time staying interested.

Wonderful development of retirement end of life issues

Lynn Austin develops her characters beautifully. The story is well written and appealing to those of us who grew up in middle America small towns. The issues accompanying retirement and end of life are handled with sensitivity and authenticity.

Fly Away

What a great message given from the inspiring words of Lynn Austin,through the voice of narrator Jacki Kleineksel! Trust in the Lord always and not unto thien own understanding the Bible says . Lynn wonderfully brings out the value of human life and Gods plan for it thru her story ! I can't say enough in regards to her talented writing skills.

stereotypes and old lady reading style

I have really enjoyed Lynne Austin series on Old Testament stories, but this book just didn't meet that level at all. I couldn't even really get through the first chapter. First the storyline just feels like it's stereotype after stereotype. And the reader is just reading it like you would expect an elderly lady to read it... again a stereotype I know but that's exactly how it sounds to me. I'll be asking for a refund

Absolutely one of the best I’ve read!

What a great writer Lynn Austin is . This isn’t the first book of hers I’ve read, but so far I think it’s the best. A page turner, kept me wanting to read more, with such a heart wrenching yet warming end. Loved it!

Another amazing book by Lynn Austin

I wish all Christian-fiction could be this well written. More real-life characters and more real-life stories than most other authors. Please continue to write.

A favorite author

Lynn Austin did it again. Outstanding read. Always engaging, descriptive and draws the reader in to the story. Hate it when the book is finished. This was another five star read.

Great perspective, inspiring.

Lynn Austin can write about any subject and give God's perspective and inspire the reader. This story from a world view is a tragedy on many levels but Lynn shows that all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord, who only ever brings hope and a future..
