Thirty-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. Returning home one day from a work trip, she meets an attractive married man on a plane who forces her to question her life – and ultimately find it wanting.
There are consequences for Elyse, 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 the same again – and is ‘normal’ what she really wants after all?
‘Funny, sexy, heartbreaking, wise, Love in Mid Air is the kind of novel you will stay up late for. 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
