Welcome back to Bright’s Pond. Now that her morbidly obese sister, Agnes Sparrow, is comfortably dieting at the Greenbrier Nursing home, Griselda has time to fly—literally. A pilot makes an emergency landing on Hector’s Hill and creates quite a ruckus in the otherwise sleepy town of Bright’s Pond. Griselda becomes enamored with Cliff Cardwell and his airplane, a 1952 Cesna Beachpiper and takes him up on his offer of flying lessons. This after Zeb Sewickey has proposed marriage. Griselda has not given him her answer.


Meanwhile, Stella Hughes Kincaid receives word that her estranged brother, Walter, is in a coma at Greenbrier. Griselda and Agnes convince Stella to see him. On her first visit she meets Gilda Saucer who claims to be Walter’s fiancée. Stella smells a rat and upon further investigation discovers that Walter had recently become a millionaire thanks to the PA state lottery. Stella, Griselda, and pretty much everyone in town jump to the conclusion that Gilda is a gold digger. 

Stella and Griselda confront the woman who vehemently denies the accusation and pledges her sincere love for Walter. She is still suspicious, but Stella backs off. When Bright’s Pond Chief of Police, Mildred Blessing, digs up the news that Stella is married to a two-bit con man, Cliff Cardwell (the pilot) from Binghamton, NY, Gilda and the cute but lying flight instructor are chased from Greenbrier by several cane-wielding Greenbrier residents and Agnes. They are arrested on bunko charges. 


Miracles still happen occasionally in Bright’s Pond; Walter awakens from his coma. He and Stella are reunited, Griselda gives Zeb her answer—no—and is last seen flying loop-de-loops over Hector’s Hill.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Griselda Takes Off! 28. Mai 2011
Von Pam Halter - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Griselda Takes Flight kind of begins where The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow leaves off. In this book, we not only get to know Griselda better, but we get to fly along with her as she discovers who she is and what she wants. Joyce Magnin not only gives us the Bright's Pond characters we've come to know and love, she also brings us intimately into how God brings people and circumstances into our lives in order to give us the opportunity to know ourselves better and to know Him better. The people are real. The town is a place you wish you lived in. The crazy things that happen between them all will make you smile. Pam Halter

3.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable, Light and Easy Read 16. November 2011

I enjoyed reading this book. I generally read suspense novels and this was my first time to read "Christian Fiction". The best part of this book for me is that it was clean reading, nothing I would normally skip over, i.e. profanity, sex, etc. While I didn't feel like "I can't put this book down", I did get a feeling of friendship with some of the characters. I was fortunate to get this book from Amazon for free, and I will look for this author again.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gentle Mystery 6. Mai 2011
Von Bob - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Although this was categorised as a "Christian Novel" I am not sure I agree with this in the sense that it did not preach or indeed the church was not the centre of the story in fact the dinner featured more than the church. That said it is set in a small town near the city of Wilkes-Barre in North-eastern Pennsylvania which would surprise me if there were not some church connections. This book also seems to be targeted at reading groups as there are a number of questions to provoke thought. As usual I ignored all that and just read the book as an entertainment and found it a good read. Nothing much happened very quickly but I liked the way the characters and the locations were developed and the plot slowly rolled out. It takes a long time happening but the plot, and there are some sub plots revolves around Walter who is in a coma and the woman who wants to marry him and believes he has the secret to a long lost treasure.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Oops--She Did It Again 5. April 2011
Von M. Pieper - Veröffentlicht auf
Oops, she did it again.

Joyce Magnin combines the ridiculous with the poignant in a way that spells sublime. And that's especially true of GRISELDA TAKES FLIGHT, the third offering in her Bright's Pond series.

No one but Magnin could put together a comatose treasure hunter; his not-so-concerned fiancée; an obsessive pumpkin farmer; two sisters learning to love their way out of dysfunction; and a pilot who makes an emergency landing and decides to stay a while. And no one but Magnin could weave all these and more into a lovable, believable, page-turning story.

In what's become her signature style, the author uses flawed characters and awkward, often humorous situations to teach powerful lessons. Griselda Sparrow, who takes flight in not only an airplane but her self-confidence, shows readers the power of truth to set free. And as other Bright's Pond residents work through their own versions of truth-telling, readers will no doubt do the same.

At one point in my reading, I realized I was holding my breath. Charlotte Figg, heroine of Magnin's second novel, was about to encounter Griselda and friends for the first time. My concern for my fictional friends defined my discovery about their creator: Oops, she did it again.

Read it and smile. Because when GRISELDA TAKES FLIGHT, your heart will, too.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Treat Yourself! 16. November 2011
Von Sara Goff - Veröffentlicht auf
Something is not right in Bright's Pond, a serene and otherwise peaceful town outside Wilkes-Barre, Pennsyvania, and the one man who can reveal the truth is in a coma. It's autumn, and the scent of fresh-baked pies wafting from the Paradise Trailer Park almost covers the stinky trail of someone up to no good, but at every turn, Griselda, the town's librarian, finds reason to be suspicious...even 2000 feet above town hall and The Full Moon Cafe. I decided to read Griselda Takes Flight after working around the clock for several weeks to complete a project. Honestly, I could not have chosen better. Every time I picked up the book, it was like returning to a vacation I didn't want to end. Ultimately a story about taking care of others without neglecting yourself, Griselda Takes Flight is a spa treatment all its own. I recommend kicking up your feet in Bright's Pond!
