They always asked Barnaby, 'Why do you want to fly?' And he'd always reply, 'Why do you want to breathe?'"
Six months after her son committed suicide by jumping off a roof,
psychiatrist Dr. Martha Lewis claims that she's ready to go back to
work. She takes on a position at Brooklyn's St. Joseph's Hospital where
she is given the charge of the most unusual Barnaby Smith. Barnaby has
tried to fly, like a bird, his entire life. He has jumped off roofs nine
times, he has broken every bone in his body … and he has been at St.
Joseph's, heavily medicated, for the past twenty-three years for his own
safety. Mesmerized by Barnaby Smith, Martha makes it her obsession to
bring this man back into life, to show him that life is worth living. If
she can do that, if she can convince him, then just maybe she'll manage
to convince herself, too.
Join Martha and Barnaby on a most unusual quest that takes them halfway
around the world in this story about life and death, love and
friendship, trust and belief, compromise and freedom ... and yes, the
dream and the impossibility of human flight.
More About the Author
BiographyIt's been a heck of a journey so far and I'll write my biography one fine day - for now - here's the snappy version.
I've done a ton of things on the journey to the here and now. A commercial apprenticeship, a stint in the army, saveguarding the life of the Pope in the Vatican, then joining the United Nations in New York, then Jerusalem, Beirut, Tehran and Baghdad. I had my share of close calls with bullets, bombs and kidnappings.
In 1990 I quit the UN to go to acting school in New York - great school (the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre). Alas, while there, I discovered screenwriting and, compared to writing, acting didn't stand a chance. Graduated from the Playhouse in 1992 and haven't stopped writing since.
I enjoyed the unusual journey around the world witnessing love, laughter, tears, lessons and a soul journey. I could not put this book down and wanted to know more after the last page was turned. I liked not knowing how things would turn out and that it was not a cookie cutter story and ending. I am looking forward to reading more from the author.I received this product in exchange for a review.
