Lance Whitman is a commercial airline pilot nicknamed “the Silver Eagle” by the public and the media for his heroics in the air. But his daughter Piper knows him as her emotionally abusive and distant father, and the scars of her childhood haunt her still as an adult.
Piper is also the mother of nine-year-old Fred, a precocious, voracious reader obsessed with World War II and airplanes and is endlessly observant—yet doesn’t have any friends. To Piper, his idiosyncrasies seem harmless, but to his teachers, they show signs of something more serious. As she learns the difficult-to-grasp truth that her son is autistic, a tragedy hits: her father suffers a heart attack that leaves him brain damaged, and her mother decides to abandon their unfulfilling and abusive marriage, leaving Piper as his caregiver. Suddenly, the father that Piper worked so hard to distance herself from becomes entangled in her life again as he and his dog, the loveable Chuck Yeager, move in with her and her family during his recovery.
Told in three perfectly rendered voices—Piper, Fred, and Lance—FLYING AT NIGHT explores universal questions of love, family, marriage, friendship, and forgiveness.
