Love in Mid Air
*’You always forget this part, that life regenerates itself underground through the winter, that happiness comes back. You forget that your body has the capacity for joy, that it craves it like water. You forget that one thing can end and another can begin. There is always a way out through the broken places, although you don’t know this at first – of course, why not, why would you? Pay attention, Tory. This is why things have edges.’*
Forty-something Elyse is happy with her life. That is to say, she’s not actively unhappy. She’s got a perfectly nice husband, child, home and life and knows she should be grateful for what she’s got. Flying back home one day from a work trip, she meets an attractive married man on a plane and – intensely, quickly, unexpectedly – she steps through all the instincts that say ‘no’ and instead lets ‘yes’ happen.
There are consequences for her, her husband, her child and her circle of close friends, all of whom have an investment in her life continuing as normal. But things will never be normal again – and was ‘normal’ what she really wanted after all? Sexy, smart and thought-provoking, *Love in Mid Air* is a witty, sharp, bittersweet plum of a book, all bite and juice.
‘Funny, sexy, heartbreaking, wise, *Love in Mid Air* is the kind of novel you will stay up late for. I read the first page and was hooked, I couldn’t put it down. It is not simply the story of a divorce, the story of an affair, the story of one woman caught between two men; it is a delicate exploration of the pull that almost every woman will feel at some point in her life for the unhindered freedom of *something more*.’ – Dawn Clifton Tripp, author of *Season of Open Water*
An engaging account…Wright conveys friendships and the blasé everyday with authenticity and telling detail, while passages depicitng Elyse’s inner life are rife with the same wit and insight that infuse the dialogue…Wright delivers fresh perspective and sympathetic characters few writers can match (*PUBLISHERS WEEKLY*)
