    1 thought on “Soaring Home”

    1. Loved, loved, loved this book. The time period is refreshing, the heroine is smart and appropriately angsty for her situation and the hero is loveable. Add the snappy dialogue into the mix and you have a wonderful book. I'm so impressed with Soaring Home. I can't wait to read more from Christine Johnson!

    2. I absolutely loved this book about headstrong Darcy Shea, whose dream is to fly, and the wonderful Jack Hunter, who helps Darcy realize her dreams both in the air and on the ground. Loved Darcy and Jack, and the secondary cast was wonderful. I also enjoyed reading about the time period (1918-1919) this book was set in. I'm looking forward to reading more from Christine Johnson in the future.

    3. Love the story! Jack is definitely a dashing hero and Darcy is the epitome of an independent woman! She wants to be the first female to make the first transatlantic crossing, but she has a tough road ahead of her throughout the book as the story unfolds. Women weren't meant to fly, they were meant to have homes and take care of children. The setting is perfect for this story because Darcy is a woman who goes against the flow of thinking. It's the new age and women can do well at flying, just lik [...]

    4. This story was quick to read, interesting throughout, and had very realistic, well-developed characters. I loved the main character, Darcy, and her passion for aviation, independence, strength, and faith. The historical details about flight during the early 1900's made the book go quickly for me, as I love historical fiction.

    5. I love aviation stories, and this one hit a homerun. I liked Jack and Darcy a lot. No spoilers, but it's got a rock solid ending. Read and enjoy!

    6. Title: SOARING HOMEAuthor: Christine JohnsonPublisher: Love Inspired HistoricalNovember 2010ISBN: 978-0-373-82848-7Genre: Inspirational/Historical romanceDarcy Shea has a love affair with aeroplanes. She dreams of being the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. All she needs is a plane, flight lessons, a man willing to teach her, and to avoid the shackles of marriage, because a husband would never allow her to fly. Jack Hunter is a test pilot, and when his engine locks up, he lands in Da [...]

    7. Soaring Home was an intriguing historical category romance with all of the required elements that make the story worth reading. I enjoyed learning about the history of flight in the early 1900s and the way people flew early model airplanes. That sounded pretty flimsy since they were made of wood and fuel would spray from the engine onto the pilot's goggles. Ew. Each time Jack and Darcy flew was quite an adventure. The hero had a lot of good qualities and the romantic tension was sufficient to ke [...]

    8. I loved this book. I know I say that a lot, but I really do think there are a lot of great books out there right now. I think what drew me into this book is a strong female character and also the intriguing idea of flight. Being the first woman pilot to fly anything is fascinating to me - I loved reading about Amelia Earhart. I also loved that it was a Christian book but it never felt to me like it was preaching - it seemed to be a natural part of the story. I also liked the romance - I liked th [...]

    9. Small-town girl Darcy Shea fell in love with airplanes when she attended a Chicago flight show and her passion became to fly. When pilot Jack Hunter had to land a test plane in her hometown, she feels that fate has sent him her way. With determination and faith, Darcy intends to learn to fly; what she doesn't intend is to fall in love with Jack Hunter.

    10. A heart-warming romance about a pilot and a young woman who dreams of flying. Not overly preachy, but still with strong faith elements. Reasonably well written--not brilliant, but a nice light read. The ending surprised me a little but wrapped up nicely.

    11. I have just finished this book, I thought Jack and his little fiesty lady who wanted to fly so badly would never get together, I like the fact that the author chose to make him have issues with his faith and how it was finally resolved in the end. Good story

    12. If you were to look at the aviation industry as if it were a human being, growing and aging like one, then Soaring Home takes us back to when aviation was just learning to toddle on its chubby little legs. WWI has just ended. Planes are up there, but they're solely for military use or very short flights--barn storming. Long distance hasn't been done yet, but the Wright brothers have done their thing and Glenn Curtiss is struggling to create what will be the aviation industry.While we follow this [...]

    13. Of course, she had me at the cover! I love flying stories and the intrepid heroine, so determined to learn to fly in an age when women were still barred from so much, makes it even better. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and loved how Ms. Johnson put me right in the time and place so naturally.

    14. Christine's story is set during an interesting time period (1918) - efforts at transatlantic flights, women's involvement in aviation. Narrative would have kept my attention better had it been shorter and tighter, but still a good read.

    15. Loved how the story focused on thinking and doing for others before yourself. How easy it is not to and how it can be easy to when you take the focus off yourself.
