Hope Flies on Broken Wings, is a love story set in the past, with issues that cross through all times. Having a young couple from different socio-economic backgrounds fall in love is a common theme; however, the issues that this couple has to deal with are gritty and incredibly painful to have to overcome. This book is not a light read. The author’s descriptive abilities take you into the heart and soul of both Collie and Dugan, and you feel their pain as they try to overcome the barriers that have been set against them. Hope Flies is a very interesting and unusual story. I think it would make an excellent selection for a reader’s group.
