Landing by Emma Donoghue

| /

Síla is a stylish citizen of the new Dublin, a veteran flight attendant who's traveled the world. Jude is a twenty-five-year-old archivist, stubbornly attached to the tiny town of Ireland, Ontario, in which she was born and raised. One her first plane trip, Jude's and Síle's worlds touch and snag. In the course of the next year, their lives, and those of their friends and families, will be drawn into a new, shaky orbit.

This sparkling, lively story—with a uniquely twenty-first-century twist—explores age-old questions: Does where you live matter more that whom you live with? What would you give up for love, and would you be a fool to do so?
