It's June 1993, and Ashley Lake has just been reminded that she is not a lucky person. As a small child, she lost her parents in a plane crash from which she emerged as sole survivor. More recently, as a high school senior, she watched the aunt who raised her succumb to cancer, leaving her to wonder: Am I cursed?
Rocked by her aunt's death, Ash puts plans for a collegiate track and field career on hold and moves to New York City. But even as she settles into life in The City, Ash knows she can't stay forever. Because while it doesn't look like she'll be the next Wilma Rudolph, she still might find an encouraging college coach and welcoming teammates. Possibly, even, the perfect place-or person-to call home.
From the author of Beautiful Game and Family Jewels comes a new novel about changing course in the aftermath of loss.

Well written, the romance between the main character happens only at a small fraction of the story. Then its about what she does in her life to overcome tragedy. Wanted to read more about the romance in her life. But it was a good book.
This is a great book, a wonderful story and characters I will remember for a long time. The main character, Ashley, keeps moving forward as she explores life. Flight is an incredibly positive journey, not in the shallow sense of the absence of pain and sorrow, but in finding in life and in love the courage to search and discover. And if you have not tried lesbian fiction before, let me say as an older straight man, you have some great books to discover, and I know of no better place to start than Flight.
