A Mosaic of Wings inspires and entertains. This is one novel you won’t want to miss!”–Laura Frantz, Christy Award-winning author

Nora Shipley has one goal–to carry on the legacy of her late father by taking over the scientific journal he started. To that end, she’s fought to be taken seriously among her male classmates and graduate as valedictorian of Cornell’s entomology program. When pressures to settle down rise to a fever pitch, she impulsively joins a research expedition in Kodaikanal, India, to prove herself in the field and win a scholarship.

But India holds several surprises–she is impressed not only by the beauty of its natural wonders, but also by the gentle nature she discovers in the rival classmate who accompanied her, Owen Epps. Instead of exploring, however, she is forced by the expedition leader to stay at camp and illustrate exotic butterflies the men of the team find without her. During the many quiet days, Nora befriends Sita, a young Indian girl who has been dedicated to a goddess against her will.

In this spellbinding new land, Nora is soon faced with impossible choices–between saving Sita and saving her career, and between what she’s always thought she wanted and the man she’s come to love.

My thoughts:

What a beautiful story about finding your true identity and being who Jesus created you to be. Nora is like a beautiful butterfly that has stayed in her cacoon too long but once she emerges she soars.

I will say this book ebbed and flowed for me. I was drawn in immediately but my interested waned for a bit and then about half way through I was hooked. So many interesting things taking place and unique settings, this kept me engaged.

I really liked Nora and Owen, and their love-hate relationship kept things rolling until the end!
