Overview

Debut Author Delivers Sweet Heartwarming Historical Fiction

Rebekah Hendricks dreams of a life far beyond her family's farm in Oklahoma, and when dashing aviator Arthur Samson promised adventure in the big city, she is quick to believe he's the man she's meant to marry. While she waits for the Great War to end and Arthur to return to her so they can pursue all their plans, her mother's sister falls ill. Rebekah seizes the opportunity to travel to Texas to care for Aunt Adabelle, seeing this chance to be closer to Arthur's training camp as God's approval of her plans.

But the Spanish flu epidemic changes everything. Faced with her aunt's death, Arthur's indecisiveness, and four children who have no one else to care for them, Rebeka is torn between the desire to escape the type of life she's always led and the unexpected love that just might change the dream of her heart.

    Engaging story in a little-known setting

    Wings of a Dream is an engaging story with a likable heroine and a couple of equally likable romantic prospects. But its great strength is its historical setting--the Spanish Influenza epidemic that decimated the country towards the end of WWI. The author treats this heartbreaking time with accuracy and sensitivity, weaving it deeply into the fabric of her story. A most satisfying read.

    A black figure slunk under the shadow of the trees, watching the clan with a slick grin on her post. Lionfur would be an easy job such an inactive clan. [POST POST POST POST]

    A dark grey she cat padded in. When she spotted Sandwing, she snarled and started digging her claws in her throat.
