Praise for Flying at Night
One of EW‘s Most Anticipated Books of 2018

“A gorgeously written book. Told with impeccable clarity and insight, the author doesn’t pull any punches, but instead of wincing, the reader finds herself nodding with understanding and compassion.  Piper is a flawed yet very relatable heroine stumbling over seemingly insurmountable obstacles, and readers will cheer for her as she finds her own voice and strength to move forward. Alternating points of view are expertly done, filling in the missing pieces to create a wonderful and emotionally engaging read.”New York Times bestselling author Karen White

“Raw with emotional honesty, this book is a fearless, graceful and compelling look at family, marriage and parenting. Utterly captivating. I loved it!”New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins

“Beautifully written and endlessly touching, three memorable characters face life head-on with bravery and heart.”—Phaedra Patrick, author of The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper

“In Flying at Night, Rebecca L. Brown traces smart, important parallels across tribulations and generations. She manages the neat trick of making you root for every character, even when they aren’t rooting for one another.” —Laurie Frankel, author of This Is How It Always Is

“A beautiful, compassionate novel, Flying at Night provides a checklist for what human beings demand and give to one another.  Ms. Brown opens a door to a household you will recognize as partially your own, and partially the indisputable headquarters of real people you’ve seen and want to know better. This is the good stuff, the true stuff, the stuff that keeps novels alive. Flying at Night provides a GPS to the heart of family life.”—JP Monninger, author of The Map That Leads to You

“Rebecca L Brown’s debut novel offers an engaging glimpse into the life of a family in crisis. Flying at Night’s characters are uniquely endearing, and their story presents a moving reminder of the ways that forgiveness can heal both the giver and receiver.”—Kelly Rimmer, author of Before I Let You Go

“[An] absorbing novel about the vulnerability and heartbreak of family life, its unexpected pleasures and pains… Brown’s swift story toggles between three powerful voices, each an irresistible swirl of self-protection and exposure, each struggling with the age-old dilemma of how an individual survives life inside a tribe.”—Susanna Daniel, author of Stiltsville

“Brown has crafted a stunning debut brimming with compassion, humanity, and uncommon humor…an unforgettable tale of fierce love, forgiveness, and the malleability of the human heart.”—Susan Gloss, author of Vintage

“A beautiful, and in turns heartbreaking and humorous, account of what it means to be both a child and a parent. It is about loss and redemption, love and humanity, and forging connections in the strangest and most unexpected ways.”—Erin Celello, author of Miracle Beach
