Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews “The Sound of Wings” by Suzanne Simonetti, She Writes Press, May 4, 2021. On tour with Suzy Approved Book Tours
Suzanne Simonetti, the author of “The Sounds of Wings” has written an intriguing, captivating, emotional and memorable novel. The genres for this book are Literary Fiction, Women’s Fiction, and Fiction. The timeline for this novel is set in the author’s present and goes to the past when it pertains to the characters or events. The author describes her colorful characters as complex, complicated, each having their own set of problems.I love that the author vividly describes her characters, and landscape. The setting does revolve around Butterflies, their roles, and their garden. It is almost symbolic and relatable to the characters. The author also mentions nature vs. nature.
At first the readers meets three different women characters that don’t really know each other, but as the story continues, they are related and relevant to one another. Goldie Sparrows is seventy years old, and is very creative and quirky. She loves animals, and seems to have a menagerie of live animals, and works magical wonders with clay. She is extremely creative. Working in her butterfly garden gives her peace and tranquility.
Krystal Anderson struggled fitting in with her dysfunctional upbringing. She has married a very wealthy and kind man, who would like her to be happy. She is very creative as well.
Jocelyn Anderson is insecure, and worried that she will lose her son in court. Her ex-husband wants to see more of them. Jocelyn is a writer, and now married to a kind man, who has his own problems.
In this story there are secrets and betrayals that will surface. There are twists and turns, and some intriguing surprises. Not everything is what it seems. The author discusses the importance of family, friends, children, sisterhood, love, faith and hope. I highly recommend this thought-provoking and heartfelt story.
