Editorial Reviews


FIRST RUNNER-UP: Josiah W. Bancroft Award, Florida First Coast Writer's Festival

FINALIST: Pirates Alley Society Faulkner/Wisdom Competition

FINALIST: Tuscany Prize for Catholic Fiction

"I absolutely love this book and I cannot wait until it goes to print and is available for purchase. I was immediately drawn into the story because of its historical fiction plot and the characters were so well developed I felt like they could only be based off of someone living, who'd once been real and whose story we're getting a glimpse of now. I have recommended this book to my friends, and will continue to do so once it's available in printed format. Yay! Thank you, Kaye Park Hinckley, for such a wonderfully-delicious read!"
                                                     --Netgalley Reviewer 448621

PRAISE FOR BIRDS OF A FEATHER:Voted one of the Six Best Fiction Books from the First Half of 2014.

 "Kaye Park Hinckley's stories give a fuller picture of the Christian faith. Like a bird-watcher, the thoughtful reader can even learn to spot the flutter of redemption in these stories." --Englewood Book Reviewer Magazine        
Hinckley's characters are complicated. They've done horrible things, witnessed horrible things, been the victims of horrible things, yet they continue rising each morning and putting one foot in front of the other. They fulfill their obligations to each other while these horrible things gnaw at them from the inside out. Hinckley deftly presents the repulsiveness of her character's actions, while also revealing her characters' drive toward love. ..fully developed plots and well-rounded characters.                                 
--Lake Oconee Living Magazine, Lucy Adams               "The birds in Kaye Park Hinckley's short story collection, "Birds of a Feather," all find themselves from flocks of Catholics. Their family members, or at least a shining few, believe in forgiveness, hope and redemption. But it's the sinners with whom we most sympathize.  How can we not?  Hinckley's expert literary craftsmanship is matched by the drama of Judeo-Christian values confronting American relativism and egoism.  " -- ANGELUS, The Tidings Online, Jennifer Ann Jones

From the Author

The book is the epic saga of a woman of strength and conviction, yet time and time again, she is in battle with her inner demons--revenge and hatred. This is not your run-of-the-mill historical romance, it is much deeper; about a lifetime search for love. For some of us, it takes that long! But even through those searching times, a man desires to love a woman, a parent wants to love his child, and a friend can exhibit the highest forms of loyalty.

Set in the eighteenth century, during the dawning of the new America fighting to rule itself rather than to continue as a colony of the English Crown, the novel begins with an Irish peasant girl, Nell, as she watches her mother being hung by English soldiers.

Yet we soon see that Nell is a definite type 'A' personality. We see her competiveness and confidence as she develops from girl to woman, to lover, to wife, to a slave in the West Indies, and to a loyal friend, while always in battle with the very human characteristics that destroy love--consistent hatred, revenge, and refusal to forgive. These are Nell's inner demons. Demons we recognize in ourselves.

Will she choose to let them go?
If you had lived her life, would you?

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Friends who know me ask how I kept hope of someday finding a publisher during the raising of my five children, along with my commitment to run a business for nearly twenty years. I answer that a woman is by nature creative. Home, family and community are actually springboards to creativity. Aspiration is sparked by her heart, is strengthened her trials, and finds its way into the concrete world through commitment to truth.

My writing is concerned with error and Truth. When Truth is exchanged for lies of the moment, you have a story that begins in the human heart--when hatred replaces love because my new enemy doesn't look or think like me, when anger becomes a fist to the face of a wife, or child, or friend, when a hidden hand steals because what it has is not enough, when every hunger must be satisfied, when my place in the sun is secured by dishonesty. By the standard set in our hearts, these are failings. So, after our failings, what is possible? Contrition, forgiveness, and redemption. My stories contain these themes. They are stories about what it means to be an imperfect person in an imperfect world.
