In Hovering Flight – Paperback Release

inhoveringflight I read In Hovering Flight by Joyce Hinnefeld in February of this year (read my review) … and absolutely loved it. It was one of those rare books that has stuck with me. I still think about it from time to time, remembering the way the book made me feel as I got to know the characters, the regret I had when I had finished it knowing I had to say good-bye to them. In Hovering Flight will definitely make my list of the best books of 2009. Hinnefeld’s first novel was the number one IndieNext Pick in September 2008.

I own the hardcover edition, and so it was with a little surprise when I opened my mailbox and discovered a soft cover edition of the novel (due for release August 25th) from Caitlin at Unbridled Books. Imagine my delight when I began perusing the pages at the front of the book about Praise for In Hovering Flight and saw a quote from my review here on Caribousmom! I was also thrilled to see quoted reviews from Amy at  My Friend Amy, Julie at Booking Mama, Carey at The Tome Traveller, and Dawn at She is Too Fond of Books…all smallish book bloggers like myself. How wonderful to see our opinions gracing the pages of a new release.

Many thanks to Caitlin and the folks at Unbridled Books for their continued support of book bloggers!
