Fly Away, Book review

Book description:

The drama unfolds as Mike searches desperately for the courage to face the inevitable, and Wilhelmina prays for the wisdom to lead a dying man to a personal faith. Will Mike take the future into his own hands? Can Wilhelmina learn to trust again? Will love be enough to see them through?
My review:

Being a fan of Lynn Austin's work I had no trouble reaching out for this particular title on the library shelf! 
Married for too many years to count to an ex-RAF flyboy, I know the slightest sound of an engine in the sky will have him running out of the house to identify its source. Having flown twice around the world, most often at an altitude of 5000 to 6000ft (not counting the couple of 'canned' flights over Australia), he loves anything to do with flying, even his simulator!
The resume struck me as eye catching...A WWII veteran battling terminal illness and a former professor of music with struggles of her own...What possible common points could these two have?

In 'Fly Away' I discovered a poignant love story of two opposites who reach out to each other and find the faith and the courage to truly live. This is absolutely not a story about Eros by the way!  Instead its very pathos evokes a quality that is sure to arouse countless emotions! 
Mike Dolan is a man who grabs life with both hands and this is his final flight...As a Christian Wilhelmina Brewster feels it is her duty to lead this pilot back to God...
A beautiful story of two people who learn to trust the Lord's words:
'I am the resurrection and the life.
He who believes in me will live, even
though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.'

I give it 5 stars!
