A Rush of Wings written by Kristen Heitzmann
Though her panic is real, Noelle St. Claire is uncertain what danger she is fleeing. Fragmented images and slivers of memory have driven her to abandon her wealthy, sheltered life in New York for the hope of a haven-remote and safe.
Noelle's arrival at the Rocky Mountain horse ranch owned by Rick Spencer and his brother Morgan causes more than a little stir. Beautiful, vulnerable, yet strangely secretive, Noelle is an enigma the two contrasting brothers seek to unlock. But as their attentions breach the wall she hides behind, the past becomes a menacing threat from which Noelle can no longer hide.
This is the second Heitzmann book that I have read and reviewed. And I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed the first.
A story about trauma, pain and spiritual healing this story shows a real depth of characters who become each others strengths and weaknesses. The main character, Noelle though financially wealthy, has a very damaged and painful past which she does her best to hide from by running from the only family she knows, her dad and fiance. Meeting two brother who are of course opposites, each plays a part in helping Noelle begin to tear down the walls around her heart, this causes an obvious tension between the brothers; but an even greater threat to Noelle’s mental stability.
This book is one of those books you just can’t put down. (I read it in one day!) Heitzmann does an excellent job of portraying the characters in such a way as to connect the reader to each of them at different levels and points of the story.
A fun, easy read. I highly recommend.
