In Hovering flight is the story of Addie Kavanagh, an artist and environmental activist who is dying of cancer. It is also the story of her husband and her daughter, Tom and Scarlet, as well as a couple of Addie's life long friends. They have gathered together to witness her passing and in doing so, gain some understanding of themselves and their life-long relationships with each other. This is a beautifully written story, a character study of family and friends and their exploration of their shared history and their connection with the landscape and environment. I found it somewhat difficult to follow at first because Hinnefeld's writing style tends to change perspective unexpectedly and jumps around in time. As the story progressed, however, I discovered that this added to the interest of the book instead of detracting it is a writing style employed by Hinnefeld that keeps you reading in an effort to put all the pieces together. A poetic, reflective and thought provoking book.
