Wonderful Debut Novel Mar 4, 2008
As a teenager, Celia Martin yearns to be free to live a life not dictated by her surroundings. She's grown up in a small-town farm community, and knows that when she gets old enough, she's going to the big city. Fast forward a few years and you'll find a very successful businesswoman who knows that something big is missing in her life. She's also got a coworker that is very interested in her, but she struggles with decisions concerning him. Through all of this, God seems so very far away to her.
I have never read a book that explored so many different emotions in a person's life. There's love, hate, loss, hurt, and I was feeling all this right along with Celia. All the while, though, she knows that her Heavenly Father has not forgotten her just like He doesn't forget any of His children.
"Let Me Fly" is a definite must-read!
UNFORGETTABLE Oct 2, 2007
First-time author, Elisa Mayo, has written a touching story of a young woman's coming of age, emotionally and spiritually. After tragedy befalls the small community of Cedar Creek, Celia Martin resolves to put as much distance between her past and her future as possible, only to discover that the life she believed she wanted left her wanting something more. Desiring to follow the Lord's path for her life, yet unsure what that might entail, she finds herself in an unfulfilling marriage, even further from 'home' than mere road miles. 'Let Me Fly' is a beautiful story of one young woman's journey of discovery of what is truly important in life--the love of family, and the true love that the Lord has designed for her, if she can trust Him to lead her into the future He has in store. A great read for both adults and adolescent girls alike.
Book for ALL non-readers Sep 24, 2007
For all my life, I have hated to read, therefore, reading was not one of my past-times. However, I was encouraged to read Let Me Fly and I am so thankful that I have taken the time to do so. My interest in reading has now been SPARKED! I would suggest this book to all readers and non-readers.
Great Debut! Jun 21, 2007
LET ME FLY is a fabulous first novel. The Christian romance is about a young woman who has it all, yet finds herself empty and searching still. The story tackles issues relevent to all women, like surviving betrayal and loss, but also gives hope as Celia travels back home and back in time to find herself again. The author has a gift for description, and the reader will find herself on the banks of Clear Creek with the heroine. LET ME FLY will make your spirit soar!!
