It’s Free!


For me there is nothing better than a comfortable chair, a pot of hot tea and a book. I’m also happy reading poolside, or under an umbrella on the beach and I would never – ever go on vacation without one!

I’m sure we can all agree there is nothing better than a real book in your hand however, Kindle has made book buying so much easier. Especially for me, living in a small town in Norway, where most books are only printed in Norwegian. I don’t have a Kindle, so I download them onto my iPad and I’m ready to go…

I’ve signed my book Fly Away Home up for a five day giveaway on Kindle from 10-14 June. There’s no gimmick, it’s totally free, ready to be downloaded and read.

The book is about my life. Leaving America under duress, with three young children in tow. Finding love again, rebuilding my life in a foreign country and a lot more… If you’re interested just click on this Amazon link and get your FREE copy now:Β  Fly Away Home

Feel free to leave a review on Amazon after you’ve finished andΒ Happy reading πŸ™‚

  10. Dear Maggie,
    I am like Jo–no iPad and no Kindle, but I think I can get my husband to download it for me. I have heard only wonderful things about it. I’ll be reading it on the Amazon River soon!

  11. Maggie! So generous of you! I just downloaded a copy of your book earlier and looking forward to it being part of my summer reading list! I wish I could say it would be in some exotic location, but probably not this summer! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Bonnie! I hope you enjoy it… And if I remember correctly, you live in California. To me that is an exotic location πŸ™‚

      • Hi Maggie! I do live in CA and yes, it’s all relative isn’t it?! Wherever we are, somewhere else always seems more exotic! No matter my location, I am sure I will enjoy your book! πŸ™‚
