Heart-stopping prose and crackling observations on a spiritual journey toward a life rich in love and freedom. Stuck in a dead-end relationship, this fearless narrator leaves her metaphorical baggage behind and finds a comfort zone in the air, ´´feeling safest with one plane ticket in her hand and another in her underwear drawer.´´ She flies around the world, finding reasons to love life in dozens of far-flung places from Alaska to Bhutan. Along the way she weathers unplanned losses of altitude, air pressure, and landing gear. With the help of a squad of loyal, funny, wise friends and massage therapists, she learns to sort truth from self-deception, self-involvement from self-possession. At last, having found a new partner ´´who loves Don DeLillo and the NHL´´ and a daughter ´´who needs you to teach her to dive and to laugh at herself´´—not to mention two dogs and two horses—´´staying home becomes more of an option. Maybe.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jennifer Van Dyck. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/003909/bk_adbl_003909_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
