Lift takes its name from hang gliding, a pursuit that requires flying directly into rough air, because turbulence saves a glider from sinking out. For Corrigan, this wisdom becomes a metaphor for all of life's most meaningful endeavors, particularly the great flight that is parenting.
Corrigan serves it up straight: how mundanely and fiercely her children have been loved, how close most lives occasionally come to disaster, and how often we fall short as mothers and fathers. Lift is for everyone who has been caught off guard by the pace and vulnerability of raising children, to remind us that our work is important and our time limited.
Like Anne Morrow Lindbergh's Gift from the Sea, Lift is a meditation on the complexities of a woman's life, and like Corrigan's memoir The Middle Place, Lift is boisterous and generous, a book readers and listeners cant wait to share.

Listened to it twice! Great quick listen!
Where does Lift rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is a book I always have on my iphone. Great to share with others on a long car ride or 2 hour flight...I love the stories she tells. Not sure it would mean as much if I had not read her first book prior, which I highly recommend..another great story.
What did you like best about this story?
This story is so real...she can tell it like it is! It makes you laugh, and cry!
Have you listened to any of Kelly Corrigan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes...love all of them!
Any additional comments?
If you are a mom...take the time to read...and reflect on your own kids!
