Review - Wings to Fly by Beate Boeker

Rating: You Need to Read

Blurb: Wings to Fly came out in August 2008. It is a romantic comedy, placed in Seattle. Twenty-six year old Cathy is on the way to a job interview that she hopes will result in the start of a new life and independence from a controlling brother. But being late and new to Seattle, she crashes her car into a van driven by Mick. When she blows the interview she is devastated and believes her chance is lost. Cathy couldn’t be further from the truth. Mick might just turn out to be more than she ever imagined.
Review: Having had lived through much of what this book talks about made it so dear to my heart. Being able to see that finding your wings is something that many women (and men) do gave me comfort. The characters were so very loving and endearing that you couldn't help but get caught up in them. The characters in this book were so remarkably real and well written. The interaction between Cathy and her co-worker was so masterfully written. Ms. Boeker catches her characters nuances very well. When Cathy and Mick attend Frances' birthday party, I was frustrated for them. Each disruption scene flowed seamlessly from one to the other in perfect segues.
My only problem with the book is that some of the words didn't translate as well as I would have liked. There were only three so I read over them and enjoyed the rest of the book. If you don't rush out and purchase this book now, you will be missing out on a cleverly endearing book. Ms. Boeker's ability to evoke such emotion with each and every page is REMARKABLE!
