Love in Mid Air by Kim Wright


Synopsis from Goodreads:

A chance encounter with a stranger in an airplane sends Elyse Bearden into an emotional tailspin. Suddenly, Elyse is willing to risk everything: her safe but stale marriage, her seemingly perfect life in an affluent Southern suburb, and her position in the church. As Elyse embarks on a risky affair, her longtime friend Kelly and the other women in their book club begin to question their own decisions about love, sex, marriage, and freedom. In the end it will take an extraordinary leap of faith for Elyse to find--and follow--her own path to happiness.

About the Author:

Kim Wright has been writing about travel, food and wine for over 25 years in various publications. She has written Fodor's Walt Disney World with Kids. Love in Mid Air is her first novel.

My thoughts:


While divorce rates in the US remain high it is something that people don't really talk about. When you read about divorce in many novels it is something very tidy. Many authors don't write about the confusion and turmoil. They don't write about the loss of friends. They gloss over the divorce and move on to the love story afterwards. The truth is, even the nicest of divorces is messy. It isn't an easy task to separate lives that have been intertwined, especially when children are involved.

This story is different, it doesn't gloss over the mess. It takes the reader smack into the middle of it. Every path to divorce is different. Love in Mid Air takes an honest look at the path that Elyse chooses in deciding to end her marriage.

The great part of this story is the friendship that Elyse has with her book group and ladies at the church. It shows how things happening in one persons life does spill over and affect others around them. Elyse was lucky to have such a great source of support.

Would I recommend this book to others? Absolutely. I enjoyed its honesty, however I will mention that some portions of this novel are very sexual in nature. If you are bothered by that sort of writing, you might want to skip this one.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the Publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Excellent review. :)

I'm on the fence about this one. I tend to avoid cheating tales.

Excellent questions about Modelland :)

Thank you for the review Teresa. I have seen other reviews where the blogger didn't really like it. I think I will add this to my TBR list.
