Goodreads Book Review: Flight to Coorah Creek by Janet Gover

Flight to Coorah CreekFlight to Coorah Creek by Janet Gover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I picked up this book because I’ve met Janet and she’s a good laugh. Also, I enjoyed her previous book Bring Me Sunshine (with the penguins) very much.  I’m glad I did, because I read this book in a day. When I wasn’t reading, I kept thinking about it. The characters were vivid and interesting.

Jess was hurting and carrying around a load of guilt. Adam was wonderful – everything a Flying Doctor should be! The only things I know about the outback, I’ve learned from watching Aussie soaps and films as a child. Janet Gover’s descriptions evoke a real sense of place. I could almost smell the red dust.

The secondary characters – Ellen and her weirdly well behaved kids, big softie Jack, all were lovely. My favourite was sister Luke. Now there’s a lady to be reckoned with.

The story moves along at a pace. I enjoyed every bit of it (including the bit that made me cry).

Above all, I loved the feeling of community in Coorah Creek. Personally, I’d like to see more of the place.
