Description
An "engaging . . . entertaining journey," Landing explores the pleasures and sorrows of long-distance love in the digital age ( The New York Times Book Review ). Síle is a stylish citizen of the new Dublin, a veteran flight attendant who's traveled the world. Jude is a twenty-five-year-old archivist, stubbornly attached to Ireland, Ontario, the tiny town in which she was born and raised. When Jude meets Síle on her first transatlantic plane trip, the spark between them is instant. After a coffee shared at Heathrow Airport, both women return to their lives--but neither can forget their encounter. Over the next year, Jude and Síle connect through emails, phone calls, letters, and the occasional visit. But no matter how passionate, every long-distance relationship comes to a crossroads, because you can't have a happily ever after when the one you love is a world apart . . . "[Donoghue] explores with a light, sure touch the subject of desire across distances of various kinds: generational, cultural, even spiritual." -- The New York Times Book Review "[A] charming tale." -- Kirkus Reviews
