I wouldn't want to give anything away so I must generalize. I really enjoyed reading this book. The author has a unique approach with her story and it works very well. I love a book with intelligent characters and plot and this has both. I love the way spiritual insights are woven into the story seamlessly. I call this quality of book a "keeper" and one to re-read time and again. Airplane and World War aficionados should especially enjoy the descriptions of planes and flying. Exciting, adventuresome, intelligent,insightful with a hint of romance; what more could one want? I can think of one more thing; additional books by this author!
Thoughtful and thought-provoking. A beautiful story that explains how we live our lives - all of them - and why. Kathryn writes with intensity, clarity and compelling language. I will read parts of this book again and again.
I have always been a fan of historical fiction. This novel clearly is a delight. Magee and Elinor are actual people with a story which takes place during WW2. History buffs, especially those with a love of aircraft, will appreciate the detail given to the planes highlighted in Magee’s war tales. Readers with a penchant for poetry will enjoy the exchange of verses as Magee and Elinor communicate over time. Another love story is intertwined; this one fiction, but again, the story of a pilot and the girl he loves. Anson, a crop-duster with big plans, and his Vivianne find themselves a long way from Oklahoma in this adventure.
The book “A Day in Eternity” combines history, a love story and thought provoking nuggets that stayed with me long after I finished the book. John Gillespie Magee, Jr. and Elinor are real people and the poems and history are based on their lives. Anson Roe and Vivianne are fictional characters with life stories that are similar to Magee and Elinor. Personally reading this story I could feel the common mistake of being a breath away from the happiness of love but missing the chance due to hesitations. Our thoughts do create our lives and reading this book is a fun read and a good reminder.
