To Soar on Eagle's Wings
Rachel Fitzgerald’s on Spring Break. Or at least she’s trying. Between paperwork, and harassing phone calls, she may as well have stayed in her classroom. So much for relaxation. A ‘chance’ meeting with her brother’s old roommate offers her weary soul a shred of hope, but she discovers love, like life, isn’t easy.
He talks with the wisdom of the Lord but rejects the future. She wants to soar with the eagles but walks alone. And trusting God proves to be more of a challenge than ever before…
My Review: Rachel Fitzgerald struggles with the path of solitude she’s taken. While from a large family, since the death of her mother, relationships with some of her siblings have splintered. She seeks the calmness of Crystal Lake and the Snowy Range to sort out her life.
During spring break from her teaching job she ventures to the mountain, where she meets the new game warden, Steve Mitchell who happens to be her brother’s old roommate. The remembrance of the crush she had on him when she was sixteen sends electricity through her.
Once Steve is certain Rachel has headed down the mountain on her snowmobile he investigates a wildlife situation which embroils into danger for both of them. He implores her to trust God and not be so independent, but he doesn’t trust enough to build a future.
Ms. Blare delivers a powerful story of action and suspense against the backdrop of the splendor of Wyoming. Her beautifully painted scenes and sweet love story mingled with suspense and true to life problems makes this novel a pleasurable experience. The plot takes a while to find footing but worth hanging in there to the finish.
About the Author: Renee Blare’s nose has been buried in a book for as long as she can remember. Raised in Louisiana and Wyoming, she started writing poetry in junior high school and that, as they say, was that. After having her son, a desire to attend pharmacy school sent her small family to the awesome town of Laramie. She’s been counting pills ever since. While writing’s her first love, well, after the Lord and her husband, she also likes to fish and hunt as well as pick away on her classical guitar.
After a brief detour to Texas, she back home, nestled against the Black Hills with her husband, crazy old dog and ornery cat. Add her son and parents dropping in for a home-cooked meal, and life’s never dull around her house. She serves the community of northeastern Wyoming as a pharmacist and pens her stories about struggling Christians as they travel along the journeys of their lives—meanwhile keeping things interesting with some action and intrigue, of course. She loves to interact with readers and invites you check her website, blog, and social media.
