Flying at Night

An emotionally charged debut novel, told through the voices of three family members, who learn that when your world changes, so does your destination....

Stay-at-home mom Piper Whitman Hart is too close to her nine-year-old son Fred to realize that his idiosyncrasies are signs of something more. And just when his diagnosis of autism sends her life reeling, she's dragged back into the orbit of her emotionally abusive father, Lance, after a heart attack leaves him with brain damage.

Fred is in need of a friend. Lance is in need of care. And Piper just wants to feel stable ground beneath her feet. What she never expects is that Fred and Lance--both misunderstood by the world--will start to connect in the most miraculous of ways.

My Review

This book is another one of those that is driven by characters. Yet, in this book I found that emotional connection with the characters lacking. Even though, Lance and Fred did get some of my sympathy. The innocence of Lance and Fred was sweet. However, because the emotions, I agree with other readers that it seemed to be over-empathized in what the characters were going through. The flow was a bit forced. Although, I did keep reading this book to the end in the hopes that I would feel differently about it. My feelings did not change. I would have liked to say that I really liked this book a lot but I can't.
