“A bridge of silver wings stretches from the dead ashes of an unforgiving nightmare
to the jeweled vision of a life started anew.” ― Aberjhani, The River of Winged Dreams
author Holly Bush's historical romance takes a look at what the American Civil War has left in its wake and how it affected the lives of men, women and children in a small Western town.
readable and fast-paced, this novel is more than a love story. bigotry, spirituality, literacy, honor, loyalty and integrity are some of the deeper issues that are examined within its pages. Ms. Bush weaves all of these into her story and the result is an emotional and inspiring book with a message to deliver.
there are also intense and dramatic events that take place which Reed, Belle, the Ames and the citizens of Fenton must endure in the name of freedom and justice.
overall, this is one of those novels that is hard to put down and that stays with you long after the last page is read. i highly recommend it!
