I'll GROW WINGS ALL BY MYSELF
Mary is a talented young artist all-too-familiar with change. A complicated, distant relationship with her father and a string of bad experiences have left her heart broken and her mind splintered. So finding real love always fit more in the realm of fantasy than reality. Until now. Something's different about her fiancé Joshua Clay, a charming and successful architect who has recently inherited his father's abandoned countryside mansion. Joshua's lofty dreams of leaving the city she's come to know behind in order to relocate to a rundown estate lost in the woods conflict with Mary's idea of happily ever after. But a garden at the center of the estate, seemingly untouched by time and decay, compels her to trade her fear and doubt for a chance to begin again.
As the seasons change, and the couple suffer an impossible loss, one question plays on repeat: has she made a mistake? Restoring the mansion consumes Joshua's every moment, while Mary returns to the familiar escapes of her youth. Both find no peace, and the distance only grows between them. When Mary endures an intense accident in the woods, she unknowingly awakens something supernatural within. No longer able to tell dream from reality, she spirals deeper into a world of mystery and peril, causing her to question everything she once believed to be true about the man she loves, the strange woods, and her life.
The fantasy begins...

Winter Sparrow is a beautifully written novella. Poetry on every page! The book starts with Mary, a young artist on the verge of becoming a bride, driving out to see her future home given to her fiancé Joshua by his father. She is very uneasy when they check out the house, plagued with unhappy childhood memories. While Joshua is excited about the prospect of fixing up the house to make it theirs, Mary is apprehensive about living there until she sees the garden and feels an instant connection. She agrees to move in. Fast forward to a married Mary and Joshua working fervently to make their house livable, when tragedy strikes, catapulting Mary into a severe depression. I have to admit that as I was reading, I kept thinking that this was a good "normal" book that follows a woman tormented by insecurities and sadness that bleed out into her marriage . Boy was I in for a surprise!!! I had barely finished wiping the tears from my eyes when I had to wipe them again to make sure what I was reading was real. At first I thought that maybe Mary was dreaming or in a coma, so I went back to read it again just to double check. She went from being in a fairly “normal” situation to being stuck in a terrifying fantasy world complete with wings and a demon man who wants to make her his next bride and his crazy, devilish wives who want to feed on her. I was a bit taken aback but continued to follow. By the end, I was totally heartbroken by Mary’s story and was madly in love with Joshua!!! Overall it was well written with a good and unexpected storyline. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for something new or different to their reading list.
