Broken Wings: A Novel
Onstage, the singing duo of Gabe and Mitzi Steiner captured America's heart for more than two decades. Offstage, their own hearts have throbbed as one for sixty years. Only now, Gabe has retreated into the tangles of Alzheimer's, leaving Mitzi to ponder her future alone.
Opening ourselves to others has benefits to both parties, and while it may be hard, we don't have to journey through life alone.
Why the author wrote this book:
Partly I wrote the book as a tribute to the jazz history of the city where I now live (Tulsa). I'd also become interested in "framed" stories where history and current day circumstances dovetailed. I chose the unlikely friendship between two women and wove their stories together to show redemption and the power of God's grace through providence, that God brings people together not by accident, but to benefit one another.
