Welcome to the blog tour for This Bird Flew Away by Lynda M. Martin!
Buy the BOOK at:
Bria has had a rough life. Her mother has taken her from relative to relative. Bria is torn from people she loves that aren't technically related to her, and she now lives with a cruel aunt. After running away, Bria is
missing, and when she's found they know something traumatic has happened. Bria must learn to live with what as happened while making a new life for herself. This may prove harder than Bria ever expected.
The beginning of this book was not an easy read at all. Bria has an awful life made even worse by what she has to go through. I wanted to just rip her out of the pages and take care of her. The author's knowledge really shows through. In the middle part of the book, I found Bria to be a bit of a know-it-all. This was not very appealing. Then in the last part of the book, I fell in love with her. She was such a self-assured and fantastic woman. I think this evolution of her character throughout the book was so great.
I wasn't so excited with some of Bria's decisions involving her life in the later parts of the book. I felt she needed to share information more than she did. Overall though, I thought this was a great book. The beginning may be rough to read, but in the end you have a great sense of hope for Bria. She is a survivor, and you just know that she is going to do great things for people.
