From the Publisher:
From their first meeting at Heathrow Airport and over the course of the following year, the lives of two very different people--Sile, a veteran flight attendant and world traveler, and Jude, a young archivist stubbornly attached to the tiny town of Ireland, Ontario--intersect, in a romantic comedy that reveals the joys and sorrows of a long-distance relationship. By the author of Touchy Subjects. Reprint.
A delightful, old-fashioned love story with a uniquely twenty-first-century twist, Landing is a romantic comedy that explores the pleasures and sorrows of long-distance relationships—the kind millions of us now maintain mostly by plane, phone, and Internet.

Síle is a stylish citizen of the new Dublin, a veteran flight attendant who’s traveled the world. Jude is a twenty-five-year-old archivist, stubbornly attached to the tiny town of Ireland, Ontario, in which she was born and raised. On her first plane trip, Jude’s and Síle’s worlds touch and snag at Heathrow Airport. In the course of the next year, their lives, and those of their friends and families, will be drawn into a new, shaky orbit.

This sparkling, lively story explores age-old questions: Does where you live matter more than who you live with? What would you give up for love, and would you be a fool to do so?

Annotation:
When museum-curator Jude and gorgeous stewardess Sile meet during a fatal incident onboard an airplane, they begin an e-epistolary romance that seems doomed to failure since they both have other relationships (Sile with an older woman, Jude has a husband), and they're separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Still, the two women share a vitality and intelligence that skips over all obstacles in this vibrantly devised modern romance from Emma Donoghue.

Praise

"Not nearly as challenging or thematically deep as Donoghue's historical novels...[b]ut it rises above the commonplace with its razor-sharp prose, full-bodied portraits of all the secondary characters, and shrewd observations." 02/01/2007

"[In] Irish writer Emma Donoghue's engaging new novel...she explores with a light, sure touch the subject of desire across distances of various kinds: generational, cultural, even spiritual." - Sylvia Browning 07/22/2007
