Finding Wings by Deborah Raney is the most delightful contemporary Christian novel that focuses on family and the faithfulness of God. It is the third book in the Chandler Sisters series but can be read as a stand-alone.
The characters were wonderfully drawn. The love and care of the sisters for each other radiated from the pages of the book.
There is a theme of new beginnings – quite literally and also when we let God redeem our lives. A past event has cast a shadow over a life. God does not want us to live in fear. He wants us to live abundantly free. Within the novel God gives a character the opportunity to face their fears and begin to live in a new freedom.
The lure and love of money corrupts lives. When we let money lead us, we are surely heading for a fall.
Family is important. Our families are all unique. We get different opportunities to show love and to bloom.
Part of the novel is set in a home for the mentally disabled. There were some very touching scenes perfectly captured by Deborah Raney. Having worked with teenagers with special needs, these characters were very dear to my heart.
Pets are therapeutic. People bond and relax over a cat. As a crazy cat lady, I loved these sections in the book and could totally relate.
God is faithful. He walks through life with us. When we face trouble we can call on Him and He will answer us. God is like the emergency services… we dial 999 (or 911) and they arrive to rescue us. We call out to God in prayer and He arrives and rescues us.
I absolutely adored Finding Wings. I love all Deborah Raney’s novels. They are delightful.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
