Fiction: Romance; Fiction: Spirituality

Flying Free is a light and pleasant read. Spiritually pure Seth meets and falls for "let's get this job over with and get outta here" Lia. There are villains. There is mystery. And there is love that overcomes all.

What I enjoyed about the book is the caring group of folks in the second half of life who live on Airpark Mesa near Sedona. It is there that Lia must learn to fly in order to inherit her late father's estate. The Airpark folks, whose passion is flying, building and maintaining small planes, seem very real. I was surprised to find myself learning interesting bits about the camaraderie of those who eat and sleep flying. I might have enjoyed the story even more if the romance had been in the background, and if both the plot and the characters had not been quite so predictable.

Amber Polo lives on an airpark mesa in Arizona where she writes about places she's lived and places that don't quite exist. She is passionate about writing, books and libraries. Visit her website.
