Emma Montgomery lives in rural West Cork but travels the world as a Captain-pilot working for a corporate jet charter company. Her early life was marked by abuse but Emma found escape and healing playing in the blue sky, first in her imagination, and then in her own aircraft. Emma feels safe alone up in her element. Her past still haunts and the long buried memories seeping through growing cracks threaten her security. Increasingly she is pushing the envelope seeking escape in dangerous flirtations both in the air and on the ground in her personal, social, and sexual encounters. Emma, the blue-sky orphan, is in grave danger. She is an extreme risk taker. The adrenalin rush is her escape from her past-life baggage. This is bad enough when it is sexual risk taking, but in the air the potential for going too far is worrying to all who know her.
