Rated 5 out of 5★by 41reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★by Another Great Catherine Anderson Book I've been a Catherine Anderson fan for many years. When reading the first chapter I was feeling, whoa...where is she going with this. Then I read the second chapter and I was pulled in as always. I was pulled into the journey of Gabe, the reluctant gunslinger and Nan, who has run from an abusive father, taking her much younger sister with her. A hat maker, Nan, is hiding in the small town of Ransom, Oklahoma, She fled Manhattan, thinking she has caused the death of a prominent man who attacked her. Gabe has come to Ransom, trying to escape the men who want to challenge him for his reputation. Unfortunately, a young man steps out of the shadows, giving Gabe no choice but to kill his 14th man. Surprisingly, Gabe is also killed.Gabe, finding himself at a ramshackle building in the clouds, is approached by two angels who give him the opportunity to redeem himself by choosing one, and only one, of three people in Ransom to save from their unhappy existence. He is shown the history of each of them and chooses Nan. And thus begins their journey which includes an old man who lost his family to an illness years ago, a young boy hiding under the steps of a brothel waiting for his mother to return, a young child about to be infected by a virus in the doctors office which will kill her and a small dog starving outside a restaurant. Gabe is forbidden to intefere in any way at the risk of his own redemption.Read it. 02/13/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★by Another Winner for Catherine Anderson! This book will take you away to a place that will become familar to you and you will feel like you really know the characters. I laughed out loud and cried while reading this book! This book is about second chances and making good moral decisions. Imagine a book that will make you examine your faith and what you think about morality. This story will make you stop and think about many issues differently. You will remember these characters for a long time. A magical book that I could not put down. I have read all this author's books and she will leave you wanting more. I will be reading this again and sharing with others! 02/13/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★by Walking On Air another breath of fresh air! I. LOVE. Catherine Anderson! I have ever since I picked up Keegan's Lady oh, SO many years ago. Catherine is beyond brilliant at sucking you into her book within the first few pages. Don't worry, she'll let you go at the end and when she does, you're usually left wrung out from emotions and filled with a quiet, gentle peace knowing the end is exactly the way it should have been.Walking On Air is a historic western romance [my favorite genre] with a twang of supernatural happenstance mixed in. It's a gentle read and a GREAT story. It'll leave you laughing, crying, dreading to turn the next page yet you can't WAIT to turn the next page. If you're a fan, if you've read the rest, you'll absolutely want to pick up Walking On Air -- you'll be VERY glad you did! 02/13/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★by The incomparable Ms. Anderson pens a blockbuster Ms. Anderson's books are always on my keeper shelf. She never disappoints. Walking on Air was no exception. This story of two lost souls who find each other and discover love was written beautifully and with a rare poignancy. I love a happy ending and I was unsure until the very end if she would deliver. The secondary characters added dimension to the story and I am sure there could be another book coming along when Nan's little sister grows up. I look forward to another trip to Ransom. 02/13/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★by Exceptional Read Catherine Anderson is known for her down to earth novels with every day people as the characters. She is also known for her subtle use of present day domestic and social issues, even in some of her historical novels. Catherine Anderson’s latest novel, “Walking On Air”, is the first in a series about the Valence family. This novel is a book to be savored as Ms. Anderson addresses more than one social and domestic issue. “Walking On Air” is about faith, both in God and one’s self, second chances, trust, miracles and how love can overcome most problems. This novel also addresses the issue of family which does not have to always mean the traditional type of family. I highly recommend this novel as one of the best Catherine Anderson has written. A word of warning though, be prepared to laugh, to cry and to be so caught up in the story that at the end you are also hoping for a different outcome, a miracle. You cannot go wrong with this novel if you enjoy love stories written by the best. 02/13/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★by Choices you make do effect your life I was privileged to get this book before it came out in stores and once I started reading I was hooked. Once again Catherine Anderson took me to a little town and introduced me to a new family; the Valance Family. I was shown how the choices we make effect you and others around you. I loved that choices that Gabe made in the beginning of the book; and how those choices effected him and those around him all through the book. There were some story direction that I wasn't expecting and I loved that.I look forward to more stories on this family and small town. 02/13/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★by Another keeper from Catherine Anderson I love Catherine Anderson. Her characters will grab you by the shirt collar and take you along with them on every adventure.In "Walking On Air", Ms Anderson introduces us to two lost souls; Nan Hoffman, and Gabriel Valance.In the beginning of the story, we meet Gabriel, in the last moments of his unruly and unkempt life. Offered a chance to "Make it right", Gabriel decides to help Nan Hoffman, a woman who clearly wants NOTHING to do with him.Gaining a bit of help through Nan's sister, Laney, the book moves quickly through 400+ pages. It is a wonderful read, full of humor, laughter, emotions and just wonderful appeal.I don't usually read "Historical" novels, but when Catherine Anderson's name is on the front...you can be sure of a good read!!!FIVE STARS!!! 02/13/2014
