“Freefall to Fly” by Rebekah Lyons was a breath of fresh air to me…needless to say, I loved it. Mrs. Lyons addressed topics in her book that are rarely unheard of in the public eye, and, if they are, they do not come without their fair share of shame. Being a woman in my mid-thirties and having questioned myself, “God. Why am I here?,” it was such a relief to read a book that put many things that I have or are thinking right there on the page. Not since reading “New Day” by Margaret Johnson-Hodge have I related to a character so much. The only difference is in “New Day,” Carol-Anne was fictitious, but in “Freefall to Fly,” Mrs. Lyons talks of her own experiences and her own fears. She gives her readers hope that things will get better. They, too, will get there.
One of my favorite quotes from the book is from one of her dear friends, “If you are in hell, keep walking. Because somewhere along the way, if you stay in the place where your heart breaks and you put one foot in front of the other, the darkness will eventually lift.”
I give it 5 stars.
