Jude is a 25-year-old archivist, stubbornly attached to the tiny town of Ireland, Ontario, in which she was born and raised.

In the course of the next year, their lives, and those of their friends and families, will be drawn into a new, shaky orbit.

Lovely

Jude is a small-town woman running a historical museum in rural Ontario; Sile is a urbanite Dublinner air stewardess who jet-sets the world and keeps the internet within reach of the palm of her hand. When Jude is forced to fly to the UK for family reasons, the passenger beside her passes away in his sleep, and it's Sile who speaks with Jude, and their world changes.

So much more than a romance, this story is full of interwoven philosophies of loving - does where you are matter if you're in love? How far will you go - or can you go - to keep love alive? Is one person worth the pain of letting all the others go?

Stirring and gorgeously written, 'Landing' is such a lovely, luscious, story that I was charmed, and just a little crushed out on the characters, whose relationship has the whole world - literally - stacked against it.

great listen

I don't know how this book would have read since the better part of it is in e-mail/letter format, but as a story to listen to it was interesting. Good character development and and interesting plot. Not the usual story, not the usual issues. If you are looking for a story with lesbian protagonists, this is one of your best choices here.
