Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

A rich, reassuring, coming-of-age tale for the dreamer in us all

For every woman who has come into her own or is striving to find her way in the world, Katrina's Wings honors and explores the desire to break free from childhood constraints and soar into the future. A tale of redemption, love, and triumph set entirely in the Deep South, Patricia Hickman's novel offers an intimate, occasionally painful, and frequently humorous glimpse into the lives of two sisters who take different paths in life, yet wind up at the same discovery: Miracles show up in the most unexpected places.

Praise for Patricia Hickman and Katrina's Wings from other best-selling authors:

"I was captivated by Katrina's Wings, an irresistible novel with unique charm and depth. This is Ms. Hickman's absolute best!" ?Robin Lee Hatcher

"The pain of growing up is dramatized skillfully by Hickman, and by the time
Katrina reaches her goal, the reader has identified with her. A fine treatment of the growth of an artist-and of a human being!" ?Gilbert Morris

"Katrina's Wings takes the reader on a journey through the introspective places of the soul to a place where love is launched and faith begins." ?Karen Kingsbury

"Keep some tissues handy, and be prepared to laugh as well. Beautiful language,
fascinating characters moving about the pages, and a richly woven story make this a delightful read!" ?Lawana Blackwell

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.

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!

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."

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.

Patricia Hickman's writing is evocative and at times breathtaking. Her dialogue is so true it seems like eavesdropping.
