Synopsis (via B&N)

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.

My Thoughts:

Clarissa, at first annoyed me by putting up with being treated like a child and letting her husband just walk all over her. As the book progressed, my opinion of her changed. It was a real treat to watch her grow as a person. Learn to stand up for herself a bit, learn to take action. She also has a great imagination. I loved all the scenarios towards her husband she came up with. Her overactive imagination was incredibly entertaining.

The town of Hope, Florida is wonderful. Such small town charm and the people were just what I imagine people in Hope would be. I wanted to go visit myself while reading. Such a quaint and quirky town. Did I mention it was full of ghosts? So very cool.

I found this to be a great read and I'm glad I got the opportunity to participate in this blog tour.
