Publisher's Summary

"Feathers - no matter what size or shape or color - are all the same, if you think about them. They're soft. Delicate. But the secret thing about feathers is...they are very strong."

In the pre-Katrina glow of New Orleans, Amanda Salassi is anxious about chaperoning her daughter's sixth-grade field trip to the Big Easy during Halloween. And then her worst fears come true. Her daughter's best friend, Sarah, disappears amid the magic and revelry - gone, without a trace. Unable to cope with her guilt, Amanda's daughter sinks into depression. And Amanda's husband turns destructive as he watches his family succumb to grief. Before long, Amanda's whole world has collapsed. Amanda knows she has to save herself before it's too late. As she continues to search for Sarah, she embarks on a personal journey, seeking hope and purpose in the wake of so much tragedy and loss.

Set amid the murky parishes of rural Louisiana and told through the eyes of two women who confront the darkest corners of humanity with quiet and unbreakable faith, The Feathered Bone is Julie Cantrell's master portrait of love in a fallen world.

    "Will remind you that you are stronger than you think you are."

    This book ripped my heart out and made me cry............many times, but in the end reminded me that we should never lose hope and to never forget that no matter what happens to us in this life on earth...... that we are always loved. With hope we can get through. With love we will find strength.

    "A Different Christian Story Of Faith"

    I really enjoyed this story...the faith of Sara is amazing. Coming from a background similar I immediately connected with Amanda. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is I felt there were times in the story that the author was verbose-made me wonder if she got paid by the word se wrote.

    "An emotional story that isnt afraid of dark places"

    Wow...This novel will leave you lost in thought over it even after you've put it down. What a raw and heart-wrenching novel. Work your way through the heartbreaking parts. This book finds it's way back to hope in the end.

    The realness of the story. The book led you through many emotions.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The level of faith displayed from the characters. Also, in the mist of a hopeless situation, the characters remained faithful.


    Which character – as performed by Clifton Harris – was your favorite?

    Sarah


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It began to pick up and I could not stop listening after Chapter 3, when Sarah went missing.

    I cried, cheered and went from hopelessness to hope in my personal story.

    Story
    "Don't Use Fiction to Perpetuate Stereotypes"

    I was extremely offended that the author fueled the notion that pit bulls are vicious attack dogs. She obviously doesn't know much about the breed and maybe dogs in general. One of the reasons this breed was ever used to fight was because of their gentle nature with humans. I have a pit that has cigarette burns on her from an abusive past and she is the most loving and appreciative dog I've ever owned. I have worked with dozens of pits and, although some of them because of how they were raised are intolerant of other animals, they love their humans, except in rare cases.
