"The Sound of Wings" wins the Reader Views Grand Prize Silver Award in Fiction
This stunning debut novel earns one of the top prizes in the Annual Reader Views Literary Awards program.
By: Reader Views
Love, friendship, betrayal, and risks. The Sound of Wings takes readers deep into the lives of three remarkable women who form unique bonds that strengthen as they each confront their pasts. Goldie is trapped by the memories of her dead husband. Jocelyn learns unimaginable secrets about her husband while stuck in the midst of a custody battle. Krystal has so many insecurities from a horrific childhood she can't find a way to feel good or even happy. Simonetti masterfully weaves the women's stories together and, set in the beautiful seaside town of Cape May, New Jersey, the backdrop is as charming as the characters that dwell there.
Amy Lignor with Reader Views said of the story, "The amount of emotion this debut has is enthralling. Honestly, there are not many firsts that can deliver so much love, secrets, friendship, risks, pain, betrayals… and the list goes on, that hold your attention from beginning to end."
"Writing can be such a lonely endeavor. One of the most rewarding parts of the journey is reaching and connecting to my readers. Thank you to Reader Views for the Silver Award. I am deeply honored by this recognition."
The Sound of Wings (ISBN 9781647420444, She Writes Press, 2021) is available at online bookstores. Blackstone Publishing is releasing the audio book on April 12, 2022.
