Flying with Dad by Yvonne Caputo
Magnificent connection with family
Caputo pens a wonderful title in Flying with Dad. This is the first book of this author's that I've read. It's set as a memoir, but it's so much more than that. There is this grand connection between family, set through stories. As the stories bring the reader on a journey, it also brings the author and her father on a journey that brings them together, and gives an magnificent gift together. Caputo's father was a bomber navigator in WWII, and his love of planes was shown in everything that he did. Mike's experiences changed him and affected him, with both good and traumatic experiences. It's one of those stories that is unforgettable, particularly because of its truthful experiences. Stories, especially family stories, can have a great impact on all of those who are not only involved, but those who learn about their family's past. I look forward to reading more by this author. This book is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
