The Aerie: Air Strip on Weeks Mountain by Marjorie Randell

Best fiction authors write about what and who they know. Marjorie Randell has lived in fly-in communities (residential air parks) and knows many people who live in them, as well. She has written a complete book of the making of the mythical residential air park called “The Aerie” and its inhabitants — 24 (12 couples in as many houses) plus two neighboring town folk. Amazingly, and believably, life at the Aerie gets complicated with medical emergencies, a murder and an affair. Her book goes to show there are often strong currents below a calm surface, especially as people strive to keep up appearances. Aircraft and flying are mentioned on occasion but the strength of this book lies with Randell’s love of people as well as her special interest in “flying people” who often have little in common except for their flying practices. Kudos also for creating the character L.J. Letson, geologist 🙂

The Aerie is the perfect read to take on a long airline flight or a low key weekend retreat.
