5.0 out of 5 stars GROWING UP, SOUTHERN STYLE! October 2, 2000
Format:Paperback
Katrina and her quirky family are captured in all their vividness with the author's abundant use of poetry and imagery. The writing sings throughout. The scenes evoke images from writings such as Housekeeping, by Marilynne Robinson, but with the hope and faith of the Christian worldview washed all over. This book could be read again and again for sheer literary enjoyment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking, beautiful January 5, 2005
By S.H.K.
Format:Paperback
I have read hundreds of Christian fiction books and hundreds of books in general and, while the quality of all can be appreciated, only a few writers have made as grand an impression as Hickman has with Katrina's Wings, those few being counted among classics such as Fitzgerald and Hemingway. In this book you will find more than just a warm story full of real-life struggles, heartache, and smiles (which is all included)-- breathtaking, lyrical prose and charming language tells you this is a writer with a great gift. Her images and dialogue linger in your mind long after they have passed and it is impossible not to be captivated by this book. Read it--it's worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Loved This Book! August 10, 2003
Format:Paperback
I just finished Katrina's Wings by Patricia Hickman. I loved it! This story is about a young girl growing up in the 1960s-70s in the deep South. Katrina has a lot of family problems, but learns to 'fly' through it all. The characters in this story are so real--I've been thinking about them for days after the last page was finished. I was also awed by the fantastic writing, especially the descriptions that took me there. I highly recommend this book, and I'm going to go check out more by Ms. Hickman. --Tricia Goyer, author of "From Dust and Ashes."

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting, hopeful, a beautiful story September 24, 2000
Format:Paperback
I had to stop and catch my breath over some of the evocative, almost magical metaphors the author used. I loved every character in this book in all their humanness and desperation and ultimately their hope and joy. I've rarely read a book where faith was portrayed so realistically, where grace was painted so perfectly. I'm in awe of the talent that created a story like Katrina's Wings.
