Sooo…let’s get to it…
Ashley Fontainne is a master storyteller and I am not surprised that Ruined Wings, a novella, has been picked up for film.
To me, this cover speaks of despair and hope and I love the black and white image done by One of a Kind Covers by Ashley Fontainne.
Ashley Fontainne is a master storyteller and I am always on the lookout for another story from her.
Ruined Wings…I love that the cover shows the despair and hope that is contained between ‘the pages’. It makes me wonder which will prevail.
A lot was riding on the day for Callie, but something felt wrong to her. I knew something bad was coming and her life would be changed forever.
DRUGS…ADDICTION…whether legal or illegal drugs, addiction is addiction. The destruction it brings into a family is horrific. The loss of a loved one can make something you thought was so important, inconsequential.
I love Callie, a flawed, yet strong, focused, determined seventeen year old girl who cannot accept her loss…who can’t move on.
The descent into hell is slow, seductive, and I did not see it going down this way. I love that Ashley Fontainne can always pull a trick or two out of her hat to keep me on my toes.
This sad, and realistic tale reads like a true story.
Ashley’s writing will reach into your heart and gut, and rip them out! Ruined Wings reads like a true story.
Once you start, you won’t be able to stop reading. Unputdownable. Gut wrenching. Tragic, yet hopeful.
