Descrizione

A 2015 William C. Morris YA Debut Award Finalist

Magical realism, lyrical prose, and the pain and passion of human love haunt this hypnotic generational saga.

Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava-in all other ways a normal girl-is born with the wings of a bird. In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naive to the twisted motives of others. Others like the pious Nathaniel Sorrows, who mistakes Ava for an angel and whose obsession with her grows until the night of the summer solstice celebration. That night, the skies open up, rain and feathers fill the air, and Ava's quest and her family's saga build to a devastating crescendo. First-time author Leslye Walton has constructed a layered and unforgettable mythology of what it means to be born with hearts that are tragically, exquisitely human.

    The title of the book says it all! I still don’t know how to describe it other then heartbreaking and heartwarming all at once. The narrator is wonderful <3
  • (1/5)
    why is the audiobook nonsensical? i was starting it and LARGE chunks of the book were skipped ... there is no logic to the chapters because none of them were parted correctly
  • (2/5)
    2.5 stars I didn't connect to many of the characters and didn't care as much as I thought. so many drama and heart broken, I can’t even stomach reading more.

    It is very rare that I am moved by a book anymore. This one I felt in my soul.

    Wonderful story of magic and mystery, overcome by love in its misery and delight.
    Based in the magical Seattle, whose rains can tell you as much as the birds or the leaves in a cup.

    Never doubt the magic in misgivings. They grace us with the realest lessons.
