Overview Fly, sommerfugl

Maya Williams is an ambitious, hardworking New York Business Woman, stymied on her way up the corporate ladder by sexist, male executives. But when she is sent to a conference in Hawaii and expected to lie on stage, she does the unthinkable – she tells the truth. After the event she has a break down on the beach, and then decides to stay in Kauai´i for a few days. After all: she was just fired. In Kauai´i she meets people who open her eyes to different ways of thinking and being, she begins to see life, work, love – and her self – in a whole new light. She learns how to chill, to breathe and to be more in the moment. All of a sudden she has a vision of wanting a life that might be totally different from what she thought.

When Maya returns to the corporate world as an executive, can she implement her new philosophies and still succeed? And will her personal and professional metamorphosis ultimately bring her the happiness and freedom that she dreams of?

Fly, Butterfly is a page turner that draws you in and makes you nod furiously, laugh deeply and then sob with empathy. This is a powerful novel that has the energy to inspire change.

Reviews Fly, sommerfugl

«En veldig søt og sjarmerende historie som også har en fin dose med romantikk. (...) Denne anbefaler jeg gjerne videre.»

«Historien gir rom til å drømme seg litt vekk fra en masete hverdag, og jeg kjenner at noen uker på Hawaii, det kunne jeg godt ha tenkt meg! Lettlest historie med et fint og flytende språk.»
