Wings Of A Dream: A Book Review

About The Book:

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 promises adventure in the big city, she is quick to believe he's the man she's meant to marry.

While she waits for the end of the Great War and Arthur's return, her mother's sister falls ill. Rebekah seizes the opportunity to travel to Texas to care for Aunt Adabelle, sure that her glamorous and exciting life is about to start.

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

My Review:

A delightful debut novel that will leave you wanting to read more from this wonderful new author. The book has a great pace, keeping your interest throughout and introducing you to a great cast of characters. It is one of those books that you could visual very easily into screen play and then a movie. This is another novel with the theme that God's ways are not ours, and even our best laid plans can be put off to the side, if they do not align with what God wants for us. Truly a beautifully written book that all fans of historical fiction will enjoy and treasure. I look forward to reading more from Anne Mateer in the future.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
