In Full Flight: A Story of Africa and Atonement

We rated this book:

In In Full Flight, the reader is challenged morally and left with questions of guilt, penitence, and a major question of whether absolution is possible for the worst of crimes. The story is about the life of Dr Anne Spoerry, who devoted her life to treating the least among us: patients in Africa. She would fly her small plane to dirt landing strips to bring medical attention to remote parts of Africa. She had also been a fighter in the French resistance in World War II. Her story, however, takes a turn into moral depravity when she is captured and sent to a German concentration camp where she uses her medical acumen as an angel of death. It seems that she only escaped Europe through the offices of her extremely wealthy family. She fled to Africa and a life of atonement. This is a story that is unusual in all the questions it delivers. Highly recommended.

Chris Hayden been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
