A wonderful story about accepting life as it is dealt to you Jun 14, 2002
I didn't know if I was going to enjoy this book. But once I picked it up, it just grabbed me from the beginning. Mike is a WWII avaiation vet who has just recieved notice that he has 3 to 6 months to live. Mina is a professor who has just been forced to retire after 41 years as a music teacher at a college. Fate brings them together and forces them to acknowledge their own shortcomings and accept their faith in God's methods. Mina forces Mike to look to God for the answers and Mike forces Mina to actually live.
The story has wonderful characters--especially the grandkids. The world does look different through the eyes of children.
I would recommend this book to anyone--but have a box of kleenex near by--one just won't cut it!
Faith can conquer all our fear if we look to God. Apr 26, 1997
The humanity of the characters allows each of the readers to identify with one of them. Is faith enough to stir us to action, to get us through the rough times and to help us encourage others? After reading "Fly Away" there will be no doubt about the strength and faithfulness of our God. You don't have to be a 'Super Christian' to share your experience and to lead someone to the Lord. A quick read and definitely not a "romance" story. Do remember to pick up at least one kleenex though
