The Last Flight: A Novel
The Last Flight is a riveting tale of two women desperate to escape their lives. For different reasons with underlying similarities, Claire and Eva make a plan and set the course to change their lives drastically. Claire’s need to escape her abusive husband and Eva’s need to escape a dangerous lifestyle leads to an encounter in which the two women intertwine their lives forever. Clark finds the perfect balance between vulnerability and resiliency for her female characters. During the #metoo era, where women are standing up against mistreatment and abuse, Clark is able to subtlety address the barriers faced by women while telling an enthralling story of escape. In addition, the author smoothly moves from each woman’s experiences and lives to create a cohesive presentation of the characters. From the prologue, I became engrossed in the lives of Claire and Eva. Fearing for them, cheering for them, and hoping they finally get the lives they deserve. I felt both emotion and fear of each character. It was easy to pick up The Last Flight and get lost in the story. It ready easy enough to not consume me. This book is well worth the read for any reader who likes suspense and not being bogged down with irrelevant and overly descriptive details.
