Soaring Home Review

Name of book: Soaring Home

Author: Christine Johnson

Reviewer: Melissa

Summary: At the end of WWI, a small-town girl plans to make a big splash for women’s rights by being the first woman to fly across the Atlantic.  All she needs is a plane, a co-pilot, and flight lessons.
Her prayers seem answered when a chauvinistic, though admittedly dashing, pilot lands in her hometown.  The man blocks her every effort to make the grand flight, but she perseveres, sure she’s following God’s plan.  God, however, has a way of turning the best-laid plans to his own surprising purposes.

Rating: 5

Reason for rating:I loved this book. I know I say that a lot, but I really do think there are a lot of great books out there right now. I think what drew me into this book is a strong female character and also the intriguing idea of flight. Being the first woman pilot to fly anything is fascinating to me – I loved reading about Amelia Earhart. I also loved that it was a Christian book but it never felt to me like it was preaching – it seemed to be a natural part of the story. I also liked the romance – I liked that it wasn’t an easy romance. Overall I thought this was an excellent book that I would recommend to many others. I also like how it included details about flight and planes and yet while I’m not particularly interested in the mechanics of planes, it became interesting to me in the way that the author has written it.
