    deep thought provoking tale

    In Wisconsin, everyone in the small town thinks highly of surgeon Dr. Stewart Gray, who dines with the elite. However, the much adulated Dr. Gray hides a dark side from public view. Every night after his wife an English teacher falls asleep he visits his twelve years old daughter Emma to have his sexual way with her. Uncomfortable and with no place to escape, Emma flies away in her mind though her body remains in place. On her mental trips she begins meeting her sister Ginny who at ten years old died long before Emma was born. --- Emma becomes more withdrawn with every nocturnal visit as her only friend is her sibling¿s spirit. School nurse Halloran notices the bruises on Emma¿s body and the negative trends of withdrawal and grades collapsing; she soon concludes that the epitome of upper crust society Stewart was assaulting his child. Still it is hard to prove until Emma¿s Aunt Donna arrives; she knows the real Dr. Stewart Gray not the image and believes history is repeating itself. --- FLYING IN PLACE is a deep thought provoking reprint of an insightful very dark early 1990s tale. The key characters are purposely left as two dimensional. This approach enables the reader to decide whether the two sisters are actually flying together or just a defense mechanism of the preadolescent, but also restricts the cast as women are courageous or victims and men nice or sinful. Black and white with no gray, FLYING IN PLACE grips the reader from the moment the mask falls off of Stewart and never eases the emotional shock until Donna confronts him.--- Harriet Klausner

    A tough story to tell

    Despite the heart breaking subject matter of this book the wonderfully strong characters, compelling plot and a touch of magic make this a must read!

    If you don't read another book this year, you must read this one

    If you don't read another book this year, you must read this one. It's rare that a book grips me as much as this one did. The writing is perfect, the subject matter one many avoid even tho it's truly a wrong that should be recognized and righted early on, and the plot so well-plotted that the reader cannot find a good "stopping place". I was THERE with the main character, with hopelessness and heart racing. I highly recommend this book-an excellent read.

    Well done

    Great story telling and good writing. I read a lot and this is one of the best lately. Like how the subject was handled and the paranormal aspect was not overdone.

    Highly Recommended

    This was a well-written book about a sensitive subject. I read it because I can relate to the subject matter, as can many others. I enjoyed the read, and hope all those who have had similar experiences can find help and healing.

    A real page turner!

    It was kind of hard getting into this book at first because you don't quite understand what is going on, but once you do, oh my! It will keep you interested from then on. A very good read and highly recommended.
