An "engaging . . . entertaining journey," Landing explores the pleasures and sorrows of long-distance love in the digital age ( The New York Times Book Review ).

Síle is a stylish citizen of the new Dublin, a veteran flight attendant who's traveled the world. Jude is a twenty-five-year-old archivist, stubbornly attached to Ireland, Ontario, the tiny town in which she was born and raised. When Jude meets Síle on her first transatlantic plane trip, the spark between them is instant.

After a coffee shared at Heathrow Airport, both women return to their lives--but neither can forget their encounter. Over the next year, Jude and Síle connect through emails, phone calls, letters, and the occasional visit. But no matter how passionate, every long-distance relationship comes to a crossroads, because you can't have a happily ever after when the one you love is a world apart . . .

"[Donoghue] explores with a light, sure touch the subject of desire across distances of various kinds: generational, cultural, even spiritual." -- The New York Times Book Review

"[A] charming tale." -- Kirkus Reviews

Cute romance! But plagued by tired tropes of lesbian fiction, such as the plot revolving around questions of commitment and monogamy. Also characters of color being present mostly for 'flavor,' acting as an awkward mouthpiece for the white author's views on race, and having their stories and needs subsumed into those of their white partners.

I was hoping this would be just as captivating as Room, but not so. A few times I contemplated putting it aside and reading another time, but I plodded thru. The characters were likable, but the story didn't really keep my attention.

Romance of two people meeting, falling in love, maintaining a long-distance relationship and the unavoidable problems arising thereof - the only difference between this and any other slightly sugary love story being that it is between two women...

The story of 2 women who fall in love and have a long distance relationship. It was a so-so love story that is remarkable only because the two lovers are both women. Having said that, it is emminently readable and the writing is well done.

A lovely story that I found a little too slow at times. But, overall, it was a nice story, easy read, new perspective on love.
