Flying Over Home is a searing account of a girl’s loss of her father and an adult woman’s quest to find him again. In writing that is at once passionate, precise, and poetic, Jeanette Stokes takes us on a journey from Tulsa to New Orleans to Paris to Moscow to North Carolina, connecting the dots, fanning through letters and photographs, searching for the light of her father’s smile. I have never read a more compelling book about the disastrous consequences of divorce. Yet ultimately, Stokes brings the story home to her own healing heart.
