REVIEW: Five Stars? Only five stars? When Wings Flutter by Liane Carmen deserves a lot more than just five stars! I don’t think there are words in the English language to describe the beauty of this book.
If you don’t take me up on any of my recommendations, you need to take this one seriously. This is a must read! I was truly blessed to read an advanced reader’s copy. When Wings Flutter is a book that I will never forget.
When you sit down to read this book, prepare to ugly cry. This will require a box of tissues. If you’ve lost a spouse or someone you love dearly, this book will hit you hard. Liane Carmen knows what it is like to lose someone you love with all of your heart. It brought me right back to those dark days. Those days of heartbreak, uncertainty, loneliness and fear.
Her characters are well rounded and thought out. I learned to love even the one I didn’t ever think I would.
The concept of this book is a little different. I don’t think a lot of people will object to it. I kept my mind open and was excited to read about it. You get a hint of what it is all about when the main character’s soul is preparing for the next life.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
SYNOPSIS: On the other side, Kate’s soul prepares for her next life. She just won’t remember the lessons she needs to learn or their purpose after she’s born.
Now in her twenties, Kate Matthews meets the handsome, charismatic Will Kennedy. She falls hard and fast with no idea she’s loved him before—in other lifetimes. They marry, have a son, and Kate’s life finally feels perfect.
Then, in an instant, her world shatters. Kate must face life on her own as she attempts to move forward as a single mom. To support herself, she turns her baking hobby into a business, but her heart has no interest in finding love again.
Her soul, however, has other plans.
A seemingly inconsequential meeting brings Sam, a charming food critic, into Kate’s life. They’ve just met, yet he seems hauntingly familiar. Kate’s drawn to Sam, but her determination to hide her true feelings could cost her everything she’s worked toward.
What Kate doesn’t realize is the role her past was always meant to play in her future. It’s only when she’s forced to revisit her darkest hour that she makes a startling discovery about fate, enduring love, and the power of second chances.
