Wings Like A Dove

Wings Like A Dove

In 1933, Anna Leibowicz is convinced that the American dream that brought her Jewish family here from Poland is nothing but an illusion. Her father has vanished. Her dreams of college can’t make it past the sweat-shop door. And when she discovers to her shame and horror that she’s with child, her mother gives her little choice but to leave her family. Deciding her best course of action is to try to find her father, she strikes out…hoping against hope to somehow redeem them both. When Anna stumbles upon a house full of orphan boys in rural Indiana who are in desperate need of a tutor, she agrees to postpone her journey. But she knows from the moment she meets their contemplative, deep-hearted caretaker, Thomas Chandler, that she doesn’t dare risk staying too long. She can’t afford to open her heart to them, to him. She can’t risk letting her secrets out. All too soon, the townspeople realize she’s not like them and treat her with the same disdain they give the Sisters of Mercy—the nuns who help Thomas and the boys—and Samuel, the quiet colored boy Thomas has taken in. With the Klan presence in the town growing ever stronger and the danger to this family increasing the longer she stays, Anna is torn between fleeing to keep them safe…and staying to fight beside them.

My Review

This book Wings Like A Dove is a heartstirring story set in 1933 during a time of unrest and prejudice. I think Camille Eide did an excellent job bringing to life prejudice and hatred people had for the Jews and African Americans. The story follows Anna who must leave home and make own way. I really liked Anna. She was determined and made the best of the situation. I loved getting to know her better. I liked Thomas, the young boys and Sarah. I wish they were real. I found myself smiling at some of the intereactions between the characters especially the young boys.
I was caught up in the story immediately and wanted to know what happened. Its one of those stories you can clearly visualize and feel a part of. I loved the Bibical truth weaved throughout the story. I think the reader can learn valuable truth like forgiveness, hope and love along with the characters.

I highly recommend this book to my family and friends.

I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest review. All thoughts are my own.

About the Author

Camille writes poignant, inspirational love stories some call “more than a romance.” She lives in Oregon with her husband and is a mom, grandma, office admin, lead foot, cinnamon roll baker, and a bass guitarist. She’s a fan of muscle cars, tender romance, and Peanut M&Ms.
