While the story holds a strong message of how we all deserve to be forgiven, mostly by ourselves, but by others, too, it s the strong characters that will stay with me. The selflessness of Jack and Adam, the courage and fighting spirit of Ellen, the essential goodness of Jess. They made this story strong and unputdownable."

I absolutely loved the Australian Outback setting. That, and the core subject of flying, was very reminiscent of novels by the writer of my all-time favourite novel, Nevil Shute, which was a big draw for me as I read. I also really enjoyed the fact that the book followed the stories of two couples rather than just one, and their stories were interweaved very well. The characters, and not just the main ones, are all appealing and/or interesting and jumped off the page. I felt that the story dealt with real people with real issues, and that those issues were tackled in a mature manner. Ms Gover also has the skill to tell her story without having to write detailed sex scenes, which I applaud, as I really thought as I read that the story couldn’t be told without one. This really is a case of less is more. So, for anyone who likes to know – this is a clean, PG read.
All in all, I think that Flight to Coorah Creek is one of the best books I’ve read so far this year (out of a total of nearly eighty), and I can’t wait to return to that little Outback town again.
Jess was hurting and carrying around a load of guilt. Adam was wonderful - everything a Flying Doctor should be! The only things I know about the outback, I've learned from watching Aussie soaps and films as a child. Janet Gover's descriptions evoke a real sense of place. I could almost smell the red dust.
The secondary characters - Ellen and her weirdly well behaved kids, big softie Jack, all were lovely. My favourite was sister Luke. Now there's a lady to be reckoned with.
The story moves along at a pace. I enjoyed every bit of it (including the bit that made me cry).
Above all, I loved the feeling of community in Coorah Creek. Personally, I'd like to see more of the place.
A well written, compelling plot that made me shed a tear or two and kept me enthralled for three days. I'm glad I've found the Coorah Creek series and I'm off to get the second book.
