Blog Tour: How Clarissa Burden Learned To Fly
How Clarissa Burden Learned to Fly is the transcendent story of a young woman who, in a twenty-four hour period, journeys through startling moments of self-discovery that lead her to a courageous and life-altering decision.
Oh my did this book NOT disappoint! It ran the gamut of emotions from super depressing to extreme joy. I felt for Clarissa. I loved how she changed and actually evolved as a character. I was cheering her on and hoping that she smartened up about her tool of a husband! I hate to admit the little devil in me, laughed when she was planning the many ways of her husband's demise. I felt so much pity for her and her sad little marriage. She wasn't without fault but her story did tug at a few of the old heart strings.
I was impressed with Connie May Fowler's writing. I enjoyed how the book flowed. There wasn't a single wasted word or page. There are a few flaws but they get outweighed by the story and the characters. I even loved that darn fly! You'll have to read it to understand what I mean ;)
