A Rush of Wings--Book Review

Welcome to my first book review post here at My Home Sanctuary. Since it is my first post I chose one of my favorites from the last few weeks.

This is the second book I have been able to read by this author. And when I was offered this book I jumped on it. I am becoming a fan of Ms. Heitzmann! I think you will too.

It is categorized as Christian Fiction but I would have to add there is a little suspense and romance in it which made it even more interesting for me. This book was easy to read for me possibly because these categories are really my favorites!

From the first few lines I was drawn into the story which begins with Noelle St. Claire about to get on a bus. She is scraed and frightened and she isn't really sure why which leaves the reader interested in what is going on.

As the story unfolds she ends up in a Colorado mountain town and finds a room at a dude ranch.

Here's the info. from the back cover: Though her panic is real, Noelle St. Claire is uncertain what danger she is fleeing. Fragmented images and slivers of memory have driven her to abandon her wealthy, sheltered life in New York for the hope of a haven—remote and safe.Noelle's arrival at the Rocky Mountain horse ranch owned by Rick Spencer and his brother Morgan causes more than a little stir. Beautiful, vulnerable, yet strangely secretive, Noelle is an enigma the two contrasting brothers seek to unlock. But as their attentions breach the wall she hides behind, the past becomes a menacing threat from which Noelle can no longer hide.

Miss Heitzmann did a great job of developing each of the characters. I was left wondering about some of them and I look forward to reading the sequel.

I was also pleased with the way Noelle's character jaded as she was from the earlier events in her life that she was able to get past them and reach out to God.

I would recommend this book for almost any reader. A late teenager would enjoy it as well as an adult. It would make a great Christmas present for the avid romance reader! There's still time to go over to Amazon and order one for Christmas or you can get it at Barnes & Noble.
