A Rush of Wings by Kirsten Heitzmann Book Review

Rush of Wings, A: A Novel


You Won't Be Able to Put This Taut Page-turner Down!

(From Bethany House Publishing) 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.
 Scraps of Life Book Club Review:

     A Rush of Wings is one of several Christian fiction thrillers by Kristen Heitzmann.  In this book, our heroine, Noelle,  is fleeing a past she doesn't remember and can't understand.  As she struggles to come to terms with her broken past and the holes in her memory, we have the opportunity to watch as God directs her paths to a safe haven.

The book develops the main characters fully, allowing the reader the chance to form your own opinions as to  what role they might play in the story.  Noelle is a likable main character, you might find yourself rooting for her as I did.   Her safe haven is the home of a very appealing Christian man who struggles with his growing interest in Noelle in light of the fact that she is not a believer.

 I enjoyed this book very much.  I think Christian fiction with a spine tingling edge can be a very difficult thing to write.  Sometimes as we move through the day to day business of life, we are tempted to forget that there are forces of both good and evil working in our world.  Ms. Heitzmann does an excellent job of reminding us of that basic truth.  While this is the first book by this author I have read, I have now made plans to purchase another.
