The Last Flight by Julie Clark Book Summary


"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."—The New York Times Book Review

Two women. Two flights. One last chance to disappear.

Claire Cook has a perfect life. Married to the scion of a political dynasty, with a Manhattan townhouse and a staff of ten, her surroundings are elegant, her days flawlessly choreographed, and her future auspicious. But behind closed doors, nothing is quite as it seems. That perfect husband has a temper that burns bright and he's not above using his staff to track Claire's every move.

What he doesn't know is that Claire has worked for months on a plan to vanish. A plan that takes her to the airport, poised to run from it all. But a chance meeting in the airport bar brings her together with a woman whose circumstances seem equally dire. Together they make a last-minute decision.

The two women switch tickets, with Claire taking Eva's flight to Oakland, and Eva traveling to Puerto Rico as Claire. They believe the swap will give each of them the head start they need to begin again somewhere far away. But when the flight to Puerto Rico crashes, Claire realizes it's no longer a head start but a new life. Cut off, out of options, with the news of her death about to explode in the media, Claire will assume Eva's identity, and along with it, the secrets Eva fought so hard to keep hidden.

For fans of Lisa Jewell and Liv Constantine, 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.

The Last FlightIt is so easy to say this is a book I couldn’t put down. But in this case it is true. The stories of two complex and dynamic women, trying to escape personal disaster in their lives, was a constant source of wonder to me. The writing was taut, with turns of fortune on every page, and rang with authenticity. The truth of womens’ lives and the difficulty we have in having that truth be as valid as that of a man’s was vivid and uncompromising. The book had a profound impact on me and I hope many, many readers find it as satisfying as I did..Score: 5/5

The Last FlightOutstanding read. Read the book straight through. Very intense with an excellent story. Interesting insights into people’s hidden personalities..Score: 5/5

It was okI liked the concept of getting away from life and just disappearing and starting out again. But in this story, the them of spousal abuse was not what I expected. The story was about control. The main characters never really got away. They just hid for awhile, had no interesting experiences while hiding, and then one of them came back. I hated how there were two stories of two different women and how it jumped around to each of their individual stories. I hate when stories start in the present and then spend most of their time taking us back six months in the past. And go on and on, repeating themselves. We get it. Men can be mean. Just not deep enough for me. And main characters were weak and uninspiring. Frustratingly simple plot. But the author clearly put a lot of effort into this book. So I can’t hate it..Score: 3/5

Difficult to finish readingThe premise of the book sounded interesting and I really thought I would like it. But although it held my attention at the start, I grew bored with the plot and characters and had a hard time finishing the book. The plot grew too far fetched to be believable as were the characters. Not my favorite and I don’t recommend it..Score: 2/5
