A Mosaic of Wings by Kimberly Duffy

53125959. sx318 sy475


Determined to uphold her father's legacy, newly graduated Nora Shipley joins an entomology research expedition to India to prove herself in the field. In this spellbinding new land, Nora is faced with impossible choices--between saving a young Indian girl and saving her career, and between what she's always thought she wanted and the man she's come to love.


A new to me author who gives a great insight about the insects that are sometimes a daily part of our lives.
Some beautiful like butterflies and others are just simply put bothersome. I must say, I did learn a lot!
I also loved the fact that Duffy briefly mentioned the macaque monkies. ( A group of monkies that I'm especially fond of especially their babies). I wish they were in the story more,
I enjoyed visiting India. The way that Duffy writes I felt like I was there right along with Nora.
I especially enjoyed learning about the actual historical figures that were portrayed in this story.
A wonderful plot with great characters along with a free trip to India who wouldn't want to read this engrossing beautiful tale.
Nora is a fabulous character. I really liked her because she's not a simpering brat. She's a hard worker and she is determined to get what she wants and that's to study bugs and their habits. ( Not something I would want to do).
Owen is just the perfect fit for Nora. I enjoyed in getting to know him too!
I highly recommend this book. The writing just really flows from this author's pen.
Here's a little thought I wanted to leave you with this is Nora's mother talking" Sometimes life makes choices for you. Other times your the one choosing. But in the end none of us really has much control."
And she's right because God our creator is the One who is in control. And she goes on to say we can only do the right the ---- the right thing--with what we've been given. Such a wise and wonderful lady don't you think?
Have you ever wondered why some of your plans fall apart and could that be because it's not in God's timing? Have you stopped and prayed about it it's what God wants you to do?
I think in my opinion and yes I'm guilty of this we want to rush into things without asking God and that's why things go awry.
My thanks to Netgalley for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.
