|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about Fly Away Home|
|After Amy Alden's mother dies, she is forced to move to Canada, where her estranged father, Thomas, lives. She hardly knows him, and, grieved by her mother's death and angry at how her life has turned upside down, she does not get along with him very well. Life takes on more meaning when she discovers a flock of orphaned goslings who do not have any parent to teach them how to fly and migrate. Anna takes on the responsibility and her father, who is an inventor, helps her with it.
