British pilot Anson Roe will ignore borders and strain relationships to land a career in Ag-aviation. But when he dreams of crashing his airplane in a remote corner of the world, all he can think of is the whereabouts of his girlfriend, Vivianne. He awakens at a small airstrip in “no man's land” Oklahoma, a year backward in time, suffering from apparent heatstroke and random amnesia. Brought to his knees, he is rescued by World War II Spitfire pilot and poet, John Gillespie Magee, Jr., author of the famous sonnet, “High Flight.” Pilot Officer Magee treats Anson to the force of his intellect and to harrowing tales of his barnstorming feats. In a story that interweaves true events, the two pilots explore their parallel lives and loves.

"As Anson Roe regains his memory, he makes a shocking discovery. What the discovery is and how he deals with it forms the most interesting part of the plot. This twist came at a point when I least expected it and changed my entire impression about the book. While the author had given a few clues in the previous chapters, the revelation surprised me and made the plot more interesting for me. ...The philosophical element added significantly to the plot, while also making the book inspiring." — Reviewer, onlinebookclub.org

The novel's title, A Day in Eternity, comes from a sonnet John Magee wrote in 1939 called, "Brave New World."

Our lives were strange and noble; we believed
In the feel of the earth beneath us, trusted the sun
As it played on the leaves and flowers; and we conceived
Truth and true Beauty, End of things begun …
We, too, have laughed and sung our hundred songs
The sons we bore were perfect in our eyes
We hoped for them, but did not realize …
We saw them slain, —with faith we bore our wrongs
Watched we the clouds, and did not understand
We longed for happiness; we knew despair,
Lay, with our dreams, in the gutters; and were deceived
By eyes of women; whispered hand in hand,
And loved the moonlight on a lover’s hair …
We were but a day in Eternity … still, we believed …
