Fit Lit Walking Book Club: The Last Flight by Julie Clark
This library staff-led talk will guide readers on a scenic walk around downtown as Bobbie Wrinkle, Adult Programming Coordinator leads a discussion of The Last Flight by Julie Clark.
The Last Flight is the story of two women—both alone, both scared—and one agonizing decision that will change the trajectory of both of their lives.
Cloaked under the “Me Too” movement theme, Clark takes us first inside the head of Claire, revealing why she fears her husband’s manipulation, abuse and power. A power so strong that she knows he’ll stop at nothing to track her down. If that’s not frightening enough, we then learn how Eva stumbled into being a key player in the underbelly of the drug world, which she now regrets and will go to great lengths to extricate herself from its horrors.
“The Last Flight is thoroughly absorbing—not only because of its tantalizing plot and deft pacing, but also because of its unexpected poignancy and its satisfying, if bittersweet, resolution. The characters get under your skin.”
