The Landing by Emma Donoghue was charming and an enjoyable read. It's old fashioned but in today's world. Sile, is Irish with an Indian mother. She lives in Dublin, runs the fast track, and is a forty year old flight attendant - very worldly. Jude is twenty five, lives in Ireland, Ontario, Canada, and runs a one room museum.
cover blurb - On Jude's first plane trip, their two worlds collide in Heathrow. In the course of the next year, their lives - full of men, women, commitments, and complications - will be drawn into a new shaky orbit.
This book is a love story. On paper, Jude and Sile do NOT match. In real life interactions, it's love. Sile is high maintenance. Jude is simple.
But, The Landing is about making the improbable probable. Love conquers all. It's tough and worthy of the read. I enjoyed the characters and the author's journey with them.
