Julie Cantrell is storyteller extraordinaire and The Feathered Bone is a book, I won’t forget soon.
A parent’s worst nightmare
A wife’s most dreaded fear
A story straight from today’s headlines
And a book I couldn’t put down
Amanda Salassi is my favorite character from the book. I really needed and wanted to see this poor woman find happiness. She’s beaten down by life and evil circumstances, yet she somehow finds a way to care for others in their time of need. She’s beautifully written.
I loved the Christian content that was apparent but not preachy. The way that each character faces their own crisis of faith and the ways that their pain affects their point of view.
The Feathered Bone is a book that is courageous and painful. It tackles topics that are hard to read about but Julie Cantrell does it in a graceful and articulate way. Her prose and her stellar writing had me enthralled from page one. It’s a great book about finding the courage to love again after devastation so deep and so painful, that death seems like the only alternative.
The Feathered Bone is a book I eagerly recommend, it’s one that I can say, I would absolutely read again.
I received this book from the Fiction Guild and Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for my honest review, which I’ve provided here.
