Flight Risk: A Novel Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A woman is forced to face her past in a heartbreaking and triumphant novel of old wounds and family secrets by award-winning author Joy Castro.
Isabel Morales is a successful Chicago sculptor hiding a brutal family history - one not even her husband knows. After decades of turning her back on her past, she’s forced to return to Appalachia when she receives news of her estranged mother’s death.
But going back means revisiting the traumatic childhood she escaped - and the family that cast her out when she needed them most. Back on the land she has inherited, she’s flooded with memories of the forest where she once roamed free, of her beloved lost brother, and of the old house in the West Virginia hills where she grew up. Her mother has left her another legacy, too, which reveals secrets that Isabel is only beginning to understand.
As forces bear down and threaten to take what she has left, it’s time for Isabel to step into her power, reclaim her roots, and finally confront the painful memories that have kept her from the life she truly wants.

While Flight Risk is a work of fiction, it is written in the first person and reads like a memoir. It's an enjoyable deceptively easy read, yet quite an intelligent book. It will draw you in.
You should be aware that the book does contain swear words, including the so-called f-bomb. I find that sometimes a choice swear word is the only one that will do, but I know not everyone agrees with that assertion.
With nothing new under the sun, the impact of a book often comes down to the quality of the writing. And this one is good.
