A Rush of Wings Book Review and Giveaway!!

Rush of Wings, A: A Novel 
A Rush of Wings by Kristen Heitzmann is the story of rich young Noelle who is lost in a world of pain and comes to live on a simple ranch in Colorado.  Noelle is running from an unknown fear that causes her to have nightmares of hawks swooping down on her.  She finds solace in the quiet life at the ranch where she finds two equally intriguing brothers.  Noelle is torn between the brothers and in revealing her secret.  In her time in Colorado she begins to discover the object of her fear and is also pursued by God.  How will Noelle handle discovering her worst fear and with which brother does Noelle trust with her heart?
I love how Kristen Heitzmann weaves her stories.  In A Rush of Wings she starts off with an urgency, but slows down to an easy pace by building her story and characters for a great climax.  As I became familiar with Noelle, Morgan and Rick, the dynamic seemed obvious, but the grip of the story comes with all the changing circumstances.  I love the descriptions of the country and the dialogue between the characters.  However, I wasn't too sure about the coming together of two hearts unequally yoked.  But this book was very compelling and of course I couldn't put it down.
