Author, Tiffany Hawk, will be signing her book, Love Me Anyway, June 7 at 7pm at Book Soup.

In Tiffany Hawk’s novel, Love Me Anyway: A Novel, Emily and KC seek new lives flying towards their unrealized dreams. Approaching their new job as United Airlines flight attendants from different runways, Emily explains, “For KC, picking up and heading to Chicago meant she was a grown-up. For me it was proof I was young after all.”

Emily’s high school sweetheart turns out to be a dangerous husband swinging calphalon pots, demanding perfection in the kitchen and no commentary allowed as he once kicked “his wife out of the car and left her on the side of the road late at night just for reminding him to turn on his headlights.” Carl’s escalating behavior frees Emily to leave home, however, her father and step-mother have tried to restrain her with their philosophy, “expecting too much from life would only lead to disappointment…Doing what you love was only for people with money or connections or both.” Despite these obstacles, she learns the ropes with KC and allows her deep desires for travel, love and being bolder to guide her.

KC’s seatbelt of beliefs about being abandoned by her father and her mother’s illness restrain her. She wears her secrets like a life vest but they are not helping her stay afloat. She does buoy up Emily, who says, “KC makes me want to try anything. She makes me believe I can have a rewarding career, a full passport, and true love. If I’m going to fail, I want to fail trying. “
