The Way the Crow Flies Excerpt :

“The sun came out after the war and our world went Technicolor. Everyone had the same idea. Let’s get married. Let’s have kids. Let’s be the ones who do it right.” The Way the Crow Flies, the second novel by bestselling, award-winning author Ann-Marie MacDonald, is set on the Royal Canadian Air Force station of Centralia during the early sixties. It is a time of optimism--infused with the excitement of the space race but overshadowed by the menace of the Cold War--filtered through the rich imagination and quick humour of eight-year-old Madeleine McCarthy and the idealism of her father, Jack, a career officer. Ann-Marie MacDonald said in a discussion with Oprah Winfrey about her first book, “a happy ending is when someone can walk out of the rubble and tell the story.” Madeleine achieves her childhood dream of becoming a comedian, yet twenty years later she realises she cannot rest until she has renewed the quest for the truth, and confirmed how and why the child was murdered.. Publishers Weekly, in a starred review, called The Way the Crow Flies “absorbing, psychologically rich…a chronicle of innocence betrayed”. With compassion and intelligence, and an unerring eye for the absurd as well as the confusions of childhood, , MacDonald evokes the confusion of being human and the necessity of coming to terms with our imperfections.

When an international drug smuggler makes a life-changing decision, he finds himself pursuing a different type of thrill all the way into eternity. With a hunger for excitement, Freddie Crow becomes an international smuggler, piloting planeloads of marijuana from Belize, Central America, into various areas of North Florida. Because flying drugs into the United States requires avoiding radar detection and nerves of steel, Freddie eagerly embraces this thrill-seeking opportunity. Utilizing his unique expertise of navigating a plane so low over the Gulf of Mexico's white capped waves that salt collects on its windshield, he earns the reputation of being one of the very few who can actually fly under the radar. While Freddie busies himself flying in loads of contraband for his organization, a team of determined law enforcement officers and a prosecutor diligently busy themselves to make a prosecutable case. Their perseverance pays off, and the walls come crashing in on Freddie. Facing a life sentence, he decides to cooperate and turn his life around. After serving a reduced sentence, he finds love and redemption just before his world turns upside down again. That's when two people, once on opposing sides of the law, come together and become friends as if directed by God.

As the Crowe Flies Excerpt :

This book is meant to inspire people, to teach a lesson of how perseverance, true grit, and persistence with the help of God can get them to the ultimate level of success. Kevin Crowe is a multitalented overachiever when you look at the life obstacles he has overcome. He is a native of Texas who moved to Colorado Springs at age three. He came from nothing; he was abandoned, unwanted, and unloved. He slept on floors as homeless people stayed at his house. He watched adults who were meant to guide and protect him do drugs, and, much worse, he watched his grandfather stab a man to death. Never did he think he would find himself in the same position as the man who lay on the ground later on in his adult life. Kevin became homeless at age fourteen due to his grandmother's overdosing on heroin and cocaine. Kevin is a rare statistic; he is one of the few people who beat the system. He was never put into a foster home, because he would run; he slept on streets and in Laundromats instead. He forged his way into high school at age seventeen. He was never in a stable environment until he was nineteen and was blessed to be asked to join the Thompson family. He graduated high school and graduated college from Kansas State University. Kevin's story is meant to let all know they can beat the odds; their situations do not limit their potential. Kevin is a prime example of great things from humble beginnings.
