Feathers – A Novel by Kylie Stewart was an raw emotional read, that had me hooked from start to finish.
My first read from this author, and I have to say, I fell hard for the smooth writing style and the embedded emotion that made my heart ache for Lotte.
What an emotional read! Right from the start the author pulls at all our hearts strings. The good, bad, ugly, rage, and pity. This story is a tale of learning how to trust, grow, and learning how to let go and pick up the pieces, after an unimaginable trama. Care was taken and no detail was spared in pulling the reader in, and keeping them engaged.
I will say at first I did have a little bit of a problem with the age difference, and that more so had to do with Lotte being 14 when she was rescued. But my fears were dismissed as I got deeper into the story, and the author made sure not to cross that line. The care that was taken, and the gradual growth and maturing of romantic feelings over the span of 7 years, made the story sweet, deep and almost dream like.
Overall this book, as emotionally raw as it was, was truly a beautiful story of finding light in the darkness. This book gets my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval.
