I really enjoyed this book. I appreciate the author's honesty. Many people struggle with accepting who they really are especially in the areas of religious beliefs and gaining their own independence. Worsham allows the rest of us to see that we are not alone in that struggle.

I could not put this book down. I cried and laughed. I highly recommend this book. This book is written by an author that writes with her heart.

This is very well-written memoir. The characters come alive so much that I feel like they have been part of my life. The story is touching, honest, and ,at times, gut wrenching.

“Going to Wings” is the story of a young woman who struggles to fit herself into the mold of a wife from the Deep South in the 1970’s. In her memoir, Sandra Worsham is uncomfortable with who she is until she gains new perspectives outside the realm of her small conservative circle. She finds a way to break from the stereotypic role of a woman who marries to be a housewife when she befriends the town’s eccentric - a self-made woman who lights up

Worsham has composed a truly compelling memoir, wrought with emotion and vulnerability. I had the chance to speak with her at a reading prior to reading the book for myself, and I believe that her kindness and compassion are mirrored on the page.

Worsham’s story meant something to me, and I hope that it reaches readers far and wide.

A memoir that covers coming out, religious conversion, being a caretaker for an aging parent and friend, love, loss, and more. Written by an award-winning Georgia English teacher. I would like to hear more about her teaching experience, but I guess that would be another whole book.
