Carla Stewart follows up her OFBI Fiction Book of the year debut with her compelling novel Broken Wings. Stage performers Gabe and Mitzi Steiner captured America’s heart for two decades. Now, after 60 wonderful years of marriage, Gabe has drifted into the fog of Alzheimer’s, leaving Mitzi to ponder her future—alone. In the midst of her own grief, Mitzi encounters a battered young woman desperate for someone to help her pick up the broken pieces of her life.
It's 1962, and Dusty Fairchild, daughter of a self-made millionaire and oilman, wants to go to college. Instead she is sent to a private finishing school in East Texas. Although she's never wanted for material possessions, Dusty longs for independence and adventure. The only upside to attending Miss Fontaine's is having her cousin and best childhood friend Paisley join her. Paisley has traveled the country with her bohemian mother, but she dreams of putting down roots and living a settled life.
