One More Sunriseby Michael Landon Jr., Tracie Peterson
After his dreams of being a WWII flying ace are dashed, Joe settles for a dead-end job, crop-dusting his neighbors' farms and finishing out the evening slouched at the bar in the local tavern. One morning Joe's usual crop-dusting routine turns into something else entirely when his beat-up Stearman begins a long spiral toward earth.... Joe doesn't die that morning, but he begins an odyssey whose twists and turns head him back toward life, love, and true devotion.

One More Sunrise is a touching story of a man's quest to rediscover the meaning of living every day to it's fullest. The story has rich characters and is set in the late 50's. I was rooting for Joe and Meg from the very first chapter and the end left me smiling...
