I won't spoil this review with my usual plot summary. Do yourself a big favor and READ THIS BOOK. You'll smile, cry and cheer at the absolutely perfect ending. This was my first book by K.L. Montgomery; I'm starting Green Castles today. Superb authors are a joy to find, especially when they employ excellent editors and proofreaders to create a truly delightful reading experience.
Five shining stars surrounded by dozens of those shimmering, iridescent butterflies!
When Annelise first met Trek you knew he was who she should have waited for, he adores her for being her. And there are times you want to take her by the shoulders and shake her pointing out the obvious. But it is noble trying to save your marriage, after all if she could have a child all will be just fine.
I loved this book the characters love them or hate them, are real well rounded, you can get a grip on who they are, I love well written characters. The story is one you could hear easily coming from a friend, you know it is common, and yet the story and the characters make you feel their lives and situations.
This book is a great read and I would highly recommend.
Author: K.L. Montgomery
In this book, K.L. Montgomery has written about real life characters in real life situations. The different aspects delt with in this book are: being overweight and being critcized for it, teen pregnancy, the choice of keeping a baby or adoption, infertility, adulty, emotional/physical threats to self, religous beliefs being used against you, family interference, death of a spouse. This book is ok for anyone to read there are some situations that may be more for mature audiences and some profanity but mostly it is okay. No in depth sexual occurances.
This book connected with me in many ways. The feeling of always being the "fat friend" or being with the man who is always critical of your appearance because you're heavy. Never really seeming to fit in. Having the family that expects you to do as they want you to do and not as YOU want to do. To be someone you're not so that you don't upset anyone or hurt anyones feelings. Putting your own wants and wishes on the back burner. Being the one that everyone can come to when they have problems yet never being able to turn to anyone for help for yourself.
Then finding out the truth, that you aren't in love with the person you should be. That you are with them for the wrong reasons and the one you are truly in love with is the one that opens your eyes to this realization.
Can you be with the one you want and desire without worrying about what others have to say to you or about you?
I love this book and everything about it. I laughed, I cheered, I cried, I hurt, I worried, I connected in so many ways to Annelise. I truly see myself in her, just a decade or more older. I love this book and have loved everything I have read by K.L. Montgomery.
*Spoiler Alert*. Given to Fly is compelling with characters you love or love to hate. It was an emotional journey of pain and loss, healing and love. Annalise is a young woman molded since birth into a role of traditional womanhood-good girl, wife, and mother. But as she follows the path pushed on her, she discovers her true self is not that woman and dropping an F-bomb is not the end of the world. The men in her life have hidden agendas, her father, her husband, and Trek Blue. Some of these agendas are detrimental (she's fat but she's a good cook) and some beneficial (Trek as he cries when she tells him about her fear that her husband is having an affair and the pain he feels for her). I loved the wisdom and unconditional support of Elenii Blue as she gives her the example of how Annalise's family should support her and her younger sister Charity who has her own challenges to face. Every woman on the journey of self discovery needs an Ellenii in her life.
I would highly recommend it and am looking forward to more books by this author.
