From the moment Jude and Sile first meet aboard a transatlantic flight, the chemistry between them is undeniable. After a rushed coffee at Heathrow, each woman returns to her own life, yet they are unable to shake the butterflies of that initial encounter. What follows is a long-distance exchange of passionate e-mails, letters, phone calls, and visits, most of which leave Sile and Jude feeling both exhilarated and despondent after each goodbye. Surrounding each heroine is a circle of friends and family members whose romantic struggles and successes highlight the pleasure and pain that often come with falling in love.
Landing is a quick read, and it's easy to become absorbed in this engaging long-distance relationship. Donoghue is skilled at brining out the humanity in each woman, so the sacrifices they both must make to keep their relationship alive never seem forced. And while we may grow tired of the constant late night missives and teary-eyed goodbyes, we find ourselves rooting for this couple, and hoping they will go the distance. --Gisele Toueg --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Not the same as her other books. Subject matter does not agree with me. A disappointment after "Room". That's all.Published 14 months ago by E. L. Buonanno
This was a relatively good, well written book. I didn't particularly enjoy the plot though and felt that there wasn't really a climax. Read morePublished 16 months ago by dbuyer

Really, I find it hard to express how much I love this novel--and I'm a writer! (Worrisome, right?)
But seriously, this is the kind of love story the 21st century needs... Read more
