    "Tear-jerker, smile grabber, a feel good story"

    I absolutely loved this book!! I kept it on my Ipod and was often listening when I should have been doing other things ... also volunteered to mow the lawn for my husband, so I'd have an excuse to listen for an hour or more. Noel grabbed my heart and I so wanted her to find herself in God.

    "great"

    how can you not fall in love with this guy? he saves her from poverty and bad guys and horrifying memories! its great! I loved every minute of it! there was some suspense, and some tension and LOTS of romantic moments, with that wonderful Christian flavor. I wish that there was some kind of flag or sign that audible could put on books like this so I could buy them all - knowing they'd make me feel this uplifted (too often, it's a guess and I end up disapppointed.)

    "An Outstanding Read"

    I appreciated the author gradually leading us as the characters learn to understand God's love and mercy. Too often God is portrayed as a Santa Claus. Just pray and it will be healed, solved, found. In this book the central character has deep faith but develops an even deeper relationship with the Lord as the plot unfolds. God, in His infinite wisdom and love, is the hero of the story. He does not always answer overnight, nor does He always answer the way we wish, but He does answer. Surrendering to His will is a central theme. Congratulations to Kristen Heitzmann for writing a believable story about Christians that isn't trite or corny.

    "Interesting"

    I wasn't sure I was going to like this book when I first started listening but soon found myself captivated by the characters and story-line. This was an interesting book.

    "well....."

    I read this book several years ago and liked it then. It's got a beautiful, trajic heroine, handsome heroes, psycho boyfriend, rich, overprotective father, lovely landscape...but after listening to it now, the characters are melodramatic and whiney. In terms of Christian fiction, it's not Redeeming Love (by Francine Rivers) but it's better than most.

    "Good but slow"

    I liked A Rush of Wings. I thought the author did a good job delving into personal faith and the struggle people have understanding it and allowing their faith to give them the strength they need to carry on. I thought the author was realistic and not idealistic regarding faith.

    While I enjoyed the book I can't say that it was one of those books that I will remember for a long time. It was probably more of an average book; the the author is an average writer and the narriator as well.

    "VERY SLOW READ"

    I had high hopes for this novel after reading it compared to Francine Rivers, "Redeeming Love." It was NOTHING like that. I struggled to stay interested the whole first 15 chapters (that's saying a lot). The story seemed shallow. Too much detail with not enough plot to maintain interest. Didn't flow well.

    The second half was much better and made the purchase worthwhile but not sure I'd recommend this book by any means.

    "Disappointing"

    The characters are too "one-dimensional" in my opinion. Noelle comes across as very self-centered and really never changes, even until the end, which ruins the story. The "hero" of the story is over the top in trying to convert Noelle. These characters are just not that believable. The story seems to have been written by a very beginning writer.
