"A compassionate exploration of a woman's life—between motherhood and dreaming, living the everyday and taking flight."—Jane Mendelsohn, author of I Was Amelia Earhart

When two elderly Iowans, Ruth and Henry Gutterson, disappear mysteriously on their way home from Thanksgiving, their adult children find a crate of Ruth's letters written to Anne Morrow Lindbergh. In the letters the children read of the origins of their parents' passion: how they first met in 1924 when Henry crashed his Air Mail plane into Ruth's family's cornfield; how Ruth flew alongside Henry as his navigator; about Ruth's passion for flying; and how the birth of her children kept her on the ground.

Baker & Taylor
In the wake of their parents' carefully orchestrated disappearance, the adult children of Ruth and Henry Gutterson read a series of letters written by their mother and learn how their parents met when their father crashed his airmail plane, how they enjoyed flying together before a series of miscarriages, and how they finally discovered what was missing in their lives. A first novel. 25,000 first printing.
