Publisher Comments:

Twenty years is a long time to be without a father, and for Navy pilot Annie Peregrine-Goode the sky has become a home the earth has never been. So when her father calls out of the blue to ask for a dying wishone both absurd and mysteriousno is the easiest of answers. Until she hears that the reward is the one thing she always wanted

Thus begins an enchanting novel that bursts with energy from the first pages, and sweeps you off on a journey of unforgettable characters, hilarious encounters, and haunting secrets. Malone brings characters to life as only he can, exploring the questions that defy easy answers: Is love a choice or a calling? Why do the ties of family bind so tightly? And is forgiveness a gift to othersor a gift we give ourselves?

Six months later and it is still the best book I have read in 2010! Malone comes through again!

Malone does it again with his beautifully written saga of an amazing young woman Navy pilot and the adventures she encounters in her literal treasure hunt to find the identity of her mother. The twists and turns continue through to the end of the book, when yet another surprise greets the reader. Malone does a wonderful job challenging the traditional definitions of family and the love that ensues.
