A Wonderful Ending

Brush of Wings by Karen Kingsbury is the third book of the Angels Walking trilogy by Karen Kingsbury. I loved the way the story wrapped up and I didn’t want it to end. I read the book in a little over a day because I couldn’t put it down.


I love how I was truly able to know the characters on a deeper level. I felt empathy for the characters at their pain and I felt their happiness. All of the characters to me felt realistic and like I could imagine them to be real people. I also did enjoy the angels in this book and how they each played a role in the main characters lives.

Plot and Setting

In Brush of Wings we were in two different locations and I think they had a great impact on the overall story. I also think Karen did a wonderful job of a little summary of the first two books by weaving them into the story.

Can’t Wait to Read More

I cannot wait to read more from Karen Kingsbury. Her books have changed my life for the better. Each time I read one of her books I learn more and about God. I also learn more about myself. Thank you Karen Kingsbury and her team for sending me an early copy of the book it means a lot to me. Also thank Netgalley for sending me an eArc in exchange for an honest review.
