"A religious work, the book's plot and characters are secondary to the spiritual message, which We Fly at Dawn
delivers in brief chapters enhanced with illustrations, photographs and poetry that help keep the pace. Ratliff's characters are humble people with surprisingly lofty thoughts--they even express their philosophical unrest in verse. Imaginative and competently written, the stories deliver a well-developed sermon for the Christian reader." - Kirkus Reviews
