Thirty-something Elyse is happy with her life. That is to say, she's not actively unhappy. She's got a perfectly nice husband, child, home and life and knows she should be grateful. Returning home one day from a work trip, she meets an attractive married man on a plane who forces her to question her life - and ultimately find it wanting.There are consequences for Elyse, her husband, her child and her circle of close friends, all of whom have an investment in her life continuing as normal. But things will never be the same again - and is 'normal' what she really wants after all?'Funny, sexy, heartbreaking, wise, Love in Mid Air is the kind of novel you will stay up late for. It is not simply the story of a divorce, the story of an affair, the story of one woman caught between two men; it is a delicate exploration of the pull that almost every woman will feel at some point in her life for the unhindered freedom of something more.' - Dawn Clifton Tripp, author of Season of Open Water

About the Author:

Kim Wright has been writing about travel, food, and wine for more than twenty years for many magazines including Wine Spectator, Self, Travel + Leisure and Vogue, and has twice won the Lowell Thomas Award for travel writing. Love in Mid Air is her first novel. Kim lives in Charlotte, North Carolina.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. Wright hits it out of the park in her debut, an engaging account of a woman contemplating divorce. Despite finally getting her husband, Phil, to attend counseling sessions with her, Elyse Bearden realizes her marriage is dead in the water. Though Phil's a doting father and a decent man, he's also the occasional jerk who snickers at his wife in lingerie and is generally indifferent to her. Elyse already knows she's going to leave her husband when she meets Gerry Kincaid and soon begins an affair that allows her to escape from the crushing banality of her suburban life. Serving as Elyse's foil is her beautiful best friend, Kelly, now married to an older, wealthy man. While the idea of housewives complaining about their husbands over lunch may strike some as a conventional hen-lit trope, Wright conveys friendships and the blasé everyday with authenticity and telling detail, while passages depicting Elyse's inner life are rife with the same wit and insight that infuse the dialogue. Though this story is one that readers may have seen many times before, Wright delivers fresh perspective and sympathetic characters few writers can match. (Mar.)
