**spoiler**One of my favorite quotes from this book was when Rebekah's brother passes on and the narration says "He'd died as he'd wanted- in the midst of living." That really made me stop and think! How important the little things are that we so often take for granted! Live life in the moment, and to it's fullest. Praise the Lord and admire the beauty of his creation while He allows you to.
Irene was such a lovable and kindhearted character- I so enjoyed getting to know her!
The end of this story was definitely a tear-jerker! xP Read it, and when you get to the part with Janie at the end...you'll think to yourself "Oh THAT'S what she was referencing to!" as you blow your nose and try to see the next paragraph through your blurry vision. So good. :')
"Wings of a Dream" had so many great characters, one or two frustrating ones, emotion, humor, inspiring spiritual application, and a nice sweet- *clean*- romance. What a nice story. ^_^
Anne Mateer has a style of writing that is lighthearted and simple, yet profound and emotional at the same time. (And she just so happens to have a super sweet and friendly personality! <3) I always leave her adventures encouraged and satisfied- and ready for the next! :D
