Review: Finding Wings by Deborah Raney

Finding Wings was a wonderful wrap up to the Chandler Sisters series! If you haven’t read the first two books, you can probably jump in and enjoy this one. Just know that Britt’s sisters’ stories are the focus of books one and two and all main characters from those books also appear in Finding Wings.

I loved Britt and Rafe’s story. It was so unique! These two ended up being the ones responsible for taking care of family members. Their individual schedules were so full that it was hard for Britt and Rafe to even find time to go on a date together. I loved the way that they ended up getting creative in the way they got to know each other.

Rafe had a very emotional backstory and even as an adult carried burdens and guilt related to things that had happened when he was a child. He was such a great character and a perfect match for Britt. Their personalities really worked well together and it was so fun to watch their relationship develop.

The interactions between the sisters were enjoyable to experience and it has been fun to watch as new members have been added to this family with each novel released.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Taking care of her family is a blessing, but Britt thought there would be more to life–like falling in love . . .

Being the youngest of three sisters isn’t always easy for Britt Chandler, especially when her older sisters have successful lives and hers is still on hold. She put everything aside to care for her dying mother, but now their mother is gone. Just as her life finally has a chance to blossom, her sister is ordered on bed rest during a difficult pregnancy, and it looks like God is again calling Britt to be a family caregiver–and nothing more.

Rafe Stuart is unable to forgive himself for a childhood mistake that had grave repercussions. And no matter how many lives he saves now as a first responder, he can’t ever seem to do enough penance to free his soul from that decades-old tragedy. There definitely isn’t room in his wounded heart for love; it’s much too dangerous.

When these two struggling souls encounter each other, sparks fly. But they’re both scared the fire that might result could destroy them–and the others around them. How can they begin to trust God to have the best for them and real purpose for their lives beyond what they’ve dreamed . . . or feared?
