A delightful, old-fashioned love story with a uniquely twenty-first-century twist, Emma Donoghue's Landing is a romantic comedy that explores the pleasures and sorrows of long-distance relationships – the kind millions of us now maintain mostly by plane, phone, and online. 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 the tiny town of Ireland, Ontario, in which she was born and raised. On her first plane trip, Jude's and Síle's worlds touch and snag at Heathrow Airport. In the course of the next year, their lives, and those of their friends and families, will be drawn into a new, shaky orbit. This sparkling, lively story from the author of Room, explores age-old questions: Does where you live matter more than who you live with? What would you give up for love, and would you be a fool to do so?

A delightfully funny novel about the perfect recipe for love - and cheese. Blessed are Corrie and Fee, for theirs is the kingdom of the world's tastiest farmhouse cheese. Tucked away in a corner of Ireland, the lifelong friends turn out batch after batch of perfect Coolarney Blues and Golds, thanks to co-operative cows, non-meat-eating milkmaids and the wind blowing just so in the right direction. Add to this mixture Corrie's long-lost granddaughter Abbey, fresh from a remote but by no means backward island where her husband has been on a mission (just not the religious kind). Stir in New Yorker Kit Stephens, heart-broken, burned-out, permanently hung over and hung up. And what you have is a recipe for disaster. The magic that Corrie and Fee weave in and out of their vats is legendary, but can they use their charm to turn bitterness and betrayal into love - or will the secret ingredient be lost to Coolarney cheese forever?
