Editorial Reviews. Review. “A compelling tale A bright, clear piece of fiction. Advanced Search · site Store; ›; site eBooks; ›; Literature & Fiction. A homeless boy who lives in an airport with his father, moving from terminal to terminal trying not to be noticed, is given hope when a trapped bird finally finds its . Based on the acclaimed film, this inspirational family adventure follows year- old Amy and her inventor father as they attempt to teach geese how to fly.

When Sylvie tells Tim about the incident between Lizzie and Kendall, she says that she and Richard had chosen incorrectly. Do you agree? We see Sylvie, Diana, and Lizzie both as daughters, and as mothers or expecting mothers! Did you see their personalities shift in each role? If so, how? In what ways is this true? In what ways are they similar?

A different kind of wife? What do you envision happening between Richard and Sylvie? Enhance Your Book Club Experience 1. For those who are able, invite your mother or sister to participate in a meeting of your book group. A Conversation with Jennifer Weiner 1. Your previous protagonists have primarily been young women in their twenties and thirties. What was it like for you to write about a woman in her late fifties?

What did you use as inspiration? When In Her Shoes was made into a movie, I got to take my whole family to the star-studded Hollywood premiere. It was an amazing night. We all walked the red carpet and saw the movie and hung out with the stars at Spago after.

My mother was quick to tell him that she was gay and in a committed relationship, and everyone in the family spent the whole night laughing about it. You see? If you wore a little lipstick, you could get right back out there!

The experience of shame seems to be an important linking theme in this book. Was that an intentional starting point for you, or did the narrative evolve in that direction? We hold ourselves up to impossibly high standards—in terms of how we look, in terms of how well we balance jobs and kids and houses and husbands—and then we can end up being shamed for things that are beyond our control.

You wrote about a mother-daughter relationship in Certain Girls, but Fly Away Home is about a mother and her adult daughters. How were these writing experiences different? A woman who deals with stress by running five miles? I do run—at a pace that makes glacial movement look speedy. But again, I think that the dynamics between a mother and a daughter stay the same, no matter how old they are, no matter what the daughter grows up to accomplish.

Cooking features prominently in this book, and it becomes a therapeutic activity for Sylvie. Does cooking play this kind of role in your life? Are you more like Sylvie, Ceil, or Selma in the kitchen? I love to cook, but I struggle to find the time.

Current events—particularly notable cases of infidelity—are mentioned throughout the novel. How did real political wives inspire your depiction of Sylvie? I think that women watching all have the same questions: how can she be standing up there with him? How can she stay with him? Different women in different marriages all answer the questions differently. In a novel filled with nuanced mother-daughter relationships, what was it like for you to write about the relationship between a mother and son, with Diana and Milo?
