*** This book was chosen as one of our best books of the first half of 2014!
Not all the stories in Kaye Park Hinckley’s Birds of a Feather feature a bird. However, they have other traits in common, stories of faith and hurting characters flocking together in this collection of faith-based southern fiction. From nurses to abortionists to the ghosts of colonels, a varied cast of characters face a number of spiritual themes, but they almost all invariably touch on sin, guilt, and forgiveness. While the stories are far from flawless, suffering from inconsistent characterization and repetitiveness, they nevertheless delve into the deep secrets and hidden pasts of their troubled characters.
