I love Karen Kingsbury and enjoy sharing her books with other readers. Today I’m sharing that love with all of you! I have two (2) autographed/hardcover copies of her latest book, Brush of Wings, to giveaway. To enter, see the link at the end of this post. But first! My 4 star review of the book.
Brush of Wings is the third and final book in the Angels Walking series. We’ll finally find the answers to the questions we were left with regarding Mary Catherine and Marcus at the end of Chasing Sunsets.
Brush of Wings opens with a meeting of angels in heaven. As with the previous two books in the series, these images have stayed with me. I love the image of angels meeting to discuss how best to help us on earth. This series has been a reminder to me to look for the angels in my life.
Mary Catherine is planning a move to Uganda to work at a new orphanage. Despite the fact that she needs a heart transplant. She goes without telling her parents or her best friend. She tells absolutely no one about her condition. This bugged me. An excellent example of pride, I suppose but I would’ve felt better if she’d told just one person.
Mary Catherine is also fighting her feelings for Marcus, the man she never meant to fall in love with. While reading Chasing Sunsets and this book I didn’t feel a connection or chemistry between Mary Catherine and Marcus. Their relationship felt rushed and underdeveloped. However, from the beginning I loved Tyler and Sami. I felt a connection with this couple and their relationship felt real.
Even though this book didn’t grab me as emotionally as the previous two I still enjoyed it. There is a satisfactory ending to each story and this reader appreciates having everything wrapped up.
As a fan of Kingsbury’s Baxter series I was pleasantly surprised to see a brief appearance by two members of the family.
