2. What’s the relationship between Don and Sylvia like? How does it change from the beginning to the end of the story? What do you think it will be like in the future? Don and Sylvia got divorced a year ago. Don was almost all the time away, flying, and Sylvia thought that his job was more important for him than his family, so they started to have arguments. Then Don went to the Pacific Islands. They hadn’t talked in a long time, but when they met again they found out that they still loved each other. Sylvia wanted to start a new life with her boyfriend and started to think about everything that Don did wrong to forget him; but she couldn’t and in the end she knew that she still loved him and invited him to live with her and Judy in the farm. I think that they will give each other a new opportunity and they all will be a happy family again.
3. Who has been your favourite character in this story? Give reason for your answer, including a description of that character. My favourite character has been Paul. I think that the reason is his generosity and how he only wanted the best for Don and his family. He accepted a dangerous flight to get a lot of money to start the flying school so Don could come to Australia, stay near his family and maybe he and his wife could start their relationship again. Paul is a middleaged man. He has white hair and a red face. He is incredibly generous and very kindhearted. He was a teacher in a flying school.
5. Judy proves to be a very brave girl during the story. Why? Judy is very brave thanks to the last months she spent living in the farm. She learnt how to survive in the wild. She also learnt how to ride a horse so she could ride wild horses in the forest, after the plane crash. She went on her own to find someone to help his father, and wasn’t afraid at all when the mad and dangerous men made her a prisoner.
