Abstract:

Jonathan Bach, the son of author Richard Bach, was named after the soaring, learning spirit of his father's most famous book, Jonathan Livingston Seagull. Jonathan was two years old when Richard left the family and divorced his wife, creating what society calls a "broken home." From the day he was told that Richard didn't want to be a dad, Jonathan had an excuse to hate his father, to see him as nothing more than a failure and a coward. Above the Clouds is the true story.

Of how Jonathan's compelling search to learn the truth amid a sea of half-truths gave him the courage at age twenty-one to plow through his confusion and meet Richard. It is how Jonathan and Richard finally begin to know each other. As Jonathan establishes a loving relationship with his father, he discovers that Richard is not a failure as a father. He learns that being from a broken home is not a destiny for self-destruction; that we can choose not to learn or we can.

Check our assumptions by opening our minds; we can stay safe in the walls we build to protect us or we can shatter them to make peace with the past and live an enlightened future.
