About The Book:
Seventy-year-old Goldie Sparrows faces declining finances, questionable health, and a late husband who torments her from the beyond. She seeks refuge in her butterfly garden, which is filled with voices and memories from long ago.
Jocelyn Anderson is a struggling writer who finds escape from her custody battle in the journal of her late mother-in-law. As she gets pulled through the pages of time, Jocelyn discovers her own husband has a hidden history she knows nothing about. Is this secret now Jocelyn’s to keep?
Krystal Axelrod is living a life she never dreamed she could have. And yet the demons of a dysfunctional childhood and mean girl culture from her cheerleading days cast their shadow over her ability to feel whole, capable, and worthy. Does Goldie hold the key to Krystal’s path to freedom?
A masterfully crafted tale of love, friendship, betrayal, and the risks we take in the pursuit of justice.
Miss W’s Review:
The Sound of Wings by Suzanne Simonetti is a beautifully written debut novel. I love butterflies, and I enjoy how they play such a unique role in this story. This women’s fiction novel alternates between two time periods , the present and the past which I enjoyed and helped tell the story better. The characters are complex, complicated, flawed and well fleshed out. There are three unique characters that seemingly don’t interact until the story unfolds. I love the garden setting in this story and would say that the garden is actually another character of its own. I enjoyed the secrets that were revealed as the story played out. I was truly surprised by some of the twists and turns. I enjoy the concepts discussed of family, friends , love and faith. This was a wonderful debut novel that I can highly recommend.
