Fly Away Home
by Jennifer Weiner
Fly Away Home is the story of what happens to the family of a senator who has an affair when the affair becomes public. Silvey, the senator's wife, has dedicated her life to the advancement of her husband's career and has ignored her daughters while they have grown up to be an unloving doctor who is also having an affair and a recovering addict who finds out she is pregnant.
This is a story of a family coming back together when they discover how much they need and care for each other.
This book is more than a 'beach read', and I found I really cared for the characters and was anxious to find out what happened to them. I would not characterize it as 'literature', but it had more depth than I expected.
