Book Review, Historical, Prostitution, Romance

Broken Wing by Judith James

I started my book review blog in 2009 and I have read so many outstanding books that I wanted to share them again with my followers on #SegueSaturday.  I first posted this review in January 2010.  Another short review, but a great storyline.



Holding his arms out, he turned them experimentally, left, right, his wrists barely visible in the pallid light through his eyes had long since grown accustomed to the dark. The blood had thickened, slowed, almost stopped. Angry dark lines mingled with paper-thin silver and white ones in an intricate pattern of defiance and despair. He allowed himself another swallow, a solitary pleasure, a small comfort on a cold and cavernous night.

Gabriel is a broken man who was raised in a brothel as a prostitute and doesn’t think he is worthy of love. Sarah is a widow and free spirit who does not care about the conventions that life brings her. When Sarah meets Gabriel she feels a connection that few can see, even Gabriel. An unforgettable love story told mainly from Gabriel’s perspective. A wonderful read!
