Broken Wings: A Novel

By Carla Stewart


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.

On the other side of Tulsa, everyone believes Brooke Woodson has found the perfect man--a handsome lawyer with sights on becoming Tulsa's next District Attorney. If only Brooke felt more sure. If only her fiancé could control his anger. If only love didn't come with so many scars.

When an accident lands Brooke in the hospital where Mitzi volunteers, the two women quickly develop an unlikely friendship birthed by providence and bathed in grace. And with Mitzi's help, kindness, and insight, Brooke learns how to pick up the broken pieces of her life.

Book Takeaway:

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.
