Feathers: A Novel by Kylie Stewart
Five Stars

Feathers: A Novel is the first book I have read by Kylie Stewart. I have to say, this is my new favorite read of this year. This story started out so heartbreakingly, but ended so heartwarming. Charlotte started her life as no girl should have being sold into slavery, which ultimately made her so strong. Lottie and Hawk’s story was amazingly sweet, but with life’s little frustrations popping up. To watch these two grow into strong well balanced adults was a pleasure to read. I’m hoping that the rest of the girls will get their story told. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more by Ms. Stewart

Feathers: A novel by Kylie Stewart is a book that will not only keep you hooked from start to finished but will keep you thinking about it days after you have finished reading.
The blurb made it clear that this book would be highly emotional and deep and that is exactly what you get. With a dark edge running through it you are drawn to everything in this book, from the story to the characters.
As the reader you really do become so invested in Charlotte and Hawk. They have both been through so much and the author portrays that so well.
This is a brilliant read and easily one of the best o have read so far this year. I am looking forward to what else is to come.

I just finished reading Feathers, by Kylie Stewart.

So… This book is AMAZING!

My heart hurt so much for Charlotte at the beginning, it was unbelievable.
But then you get to follow her life and see firsthand how she learns to trust, hope and love again.

And Hawk plays a big part in her transformation but first they got to go through all the emotions – skepticism, shared looks, understanding, friendship, closeness – and all that leads to love so deep, it makes you ache.

I loved all the characters, even the secondary ones – I would actually love to read their stories right from the beginning through their perspective!

But Charlotte and Hawk share a dynamic that makes you second guess all the previous love stories you’ve read and loved – and I think it’s because Kylie Stewart did such an amazing job setting up a foundation for the couple to build on – it’s almost like you, the reader, got to help them get there.

I really hope you pick this book up – I fully recommend it and will be sharing this book for a while to come!

This story!! I still can’t stop thinking about it even after finishing it two days ago! It was such a beautifully, detailed read that I was hooked from beginning to end. This incredibly talented author took me on one of the biggest emotional rollercoasters that I’ve been on for a while. I lived all of the ups and downs with the wonderful characters that she had created.
Charlotte and Hawk – these two – I don’t even know how to explain my feelings about them. I cried for them both, especially Charlotte – what an awful time she had but I admired the strength she had to keep going every day. They are both these two wonderful characters who you just desperately want the best for. I became completely 100% invested in their story.
This is the first full length novel that I have read by this author having previously read short stories by her in anthologies and this truly was an outstanding read. I cannot wait to read more from her in the future and I am eagerly awaiting the release of ‘Wings’!!

Feathers by Kylie Stewart gutted me on page one and had moments throughout the book that my heart just broke.

Charlotte hasn’t had the life of a typical fourteen year old girl when we meet her. She is finally somewhere she is safe and secure and that is not the only change to her life.

Hawk is the type of guy any mother would love to have their daughter bring home. He’s so honorable, but there is so much more to him.

I loved what the feathers represent for Charlotte and seeing them pop up from time to time set my heart a racing.

There are some pretty tough situations but if you can get past the discomfort then I think you will enjoy the book.

Feathers by Kylie Stewart is a book I absolutely could not put down. I read this book in just a few hours because I HAD to know what was going to happen next.

Charlotte Waters has experienced things no one should ever have to go through. She’s finally safe but vows to never trust another man. She does not expect Hawk McLean to see into her nor does she expect to forge a friendship with him. When Hawk first saw Charlotte, she was just a young teen but he couldn’t look away. He had a desire to know her unlike the other girls his grandmother saved. Charlotte can’t help how she feels about Hawk but he keeps leaving and she thinks it might be time to give up. Does Hawk realize his feelings for Charlotte or are they destined to stay the friends they became?

I absolutely loved this story. I didn’t know what to expect when I started it but I couldn’t put it down. Charlotte experienced so much pain and trauma but she came out the other side and built a life. I loved her resilience. Hawk was really trying to do what he thought was best. You could see his genuine care for Charlotte. This is definitely a five star read!

I read the blurb for this book and passed it over several times before I cracked the binding. Yes, the beginning is dark and horrible and should not be over looked.

This story is a fast read. I read it in about 3 hours and when I looked at the page count, I was surprised to see that it is over 200 pages.

Told in dual POV over a 7 year time span, FEATHERS grabbed me from the very first page to the very last word. It is emotional and moving and light and hopeful – even in the darkness.

I think this is the first book I’ve read by this author and I will absolutely be picking up the novella mentioned at the end of this book.

While I’m not sure I would recommend to my younger cousins, I would recommend if you enjoy New Age/College stories.

Feathers: A Novel by Kylie Stewart was an amazing story that I was not expecting. To be honest, I was not sure what I was thinking was going to happen. This story has taken me on an emotional roller coaster. Charlotte has so much negativity in her life. There was so much pain, trust broken, fear, and anger. Charlotte has really turned her life around has learned that there is a force of good that will help her. She does not need to be alone all the time. Hawk was another broken person. He has built up a wall around him due to his life choices. Charlotte and Hawk get together and try to figure out their lives and can they learn together that they can have a force of good around them.

Feathers A Novel by Kylie Stewart is a amazingly written story that once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. This story had my emotions all over the place. Hawk is very good at hiding his unhappiness and a dark past has caused Charlotte to put up walls.Can these two get into each other’s lives?.This story was completely different than I had expected and is one that will have you thinking about it long after you finish it. These have a great chemistry together. I highly recommend reading this book. I look forward to reading more from this Author.

Four Stars

To trust someone so completely was rare and raw. To live with the scars and still find a love so raw and freeing. During this story I felt every year and ago. I loved that Gran was someone who did what see a painted lips. My only real issue with the story was how Lottie’s character wasn’t developed more. Hawk is an idiot but he is forgiven because he remembers the feathers. Over all I was really excited reading this story. I was sadden and troubled over the beginning. The background was short but it gave you a glimpse of what life she had to get over. I was shocked and sick over the ages some of this girls were when they were taken.
