Review

Reviewed By Jessyca Garcia for Readers' FavoriteI thought Walking Over Eggshells by Lucinda E. Clarke was an interesting book. In her memoir, Clarke shares a huge part of her life. She has written about her adventures living in different places, her relationship with her verbally abusive mother, and her family life.Clarke has certainly led an interesting life. While reading Walking Over Eggshells, I had mixed feelings. I went back and forth from being sympathetic to what Clarke was going through to wondering what other people's points of view on situations that occurred were. I hated Clarke's mother and did not understand why Clarke kept trying to please her. I also did not understand why people would believe Clarke's mother's side of things unless she had some type of proof.Towards the end of the book I wanted to stand up and cheer because I felt that Clarke finally made a good decision about her home life. After so many years putting up with someone, it took guts to do what she did in South Africa. I do, however, still have some unanswered questions about some things that happened in the book. I am honestly glad that Clarke was finally able to achieve something that she wanted in her life. In the beginning of the book I did not ever think that she would live such an adventurous life. I am glad that I read Walking Over Eggshells because I consider Clarke a strong female role model. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

From a very early age, Lucinda E Clarke always wanted to write, but was ordered to "get a proper job." Journalists were required to drink their targets under the table to get a story she was told, and alcohol doesn't agree with her! So she dutifully trained as a teacher, and has taught in seven different countries - from primary school infants to lecturing adults in Technical College. After suffering a mentally abusive childhood, Lucinda had little defense against the Walter Mitty aspirations of the man she married. They moved from country to country, usually one step ahead of the creditors. Eventually Lucinda found the courage to leave him and began to write and write and write. She graduated from radio, to television and then ran her own video production company, winning over 20 awards along the way. She has known great wealth and dire poverty, and has learned many valuable lessons, but what saved her sanity, was an unquenchable sense of humour, and lots and lots of hard work. After more than 30 years in Africa, she now lives in Spain with her second husband, her children at a safe distance and no animals at all. She writes a satirical column for a local publication and gives talks to special interest groups, particularly on history which is her second love - her husband comes first of course! She is still working on getting into the Cruise Ship Industry as a speaker, as she can't afford to pay the full price for exotic holidays. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
