OVERVIEW

Destiny's path is not always a clear cut trail, a discovery the tinker's daughter is about to make in this dramatic sequel to Hope Flies on Broken Wings. Armed with little more than a tattered shirt, a whisper of hope, and a protective charm, Collie flees from the seaside ghosts of Donnel that haunt her soul and dares to cross into the Tillaman Realm. There, she succumbs to a charismatic young knight named Morgan who offers her sanctuary, only to learn that a pretty smile is not always to be trusted. Her ultimate fate is precariously held within the mind of a catatonic child, and a deep winter snow has settled over the boundary mountains, blocking all roads of escape. Bound to Morgan and hopelessly entangled in a dangerous game of brutality and possession, all Collie wants now is to return home

REVIEW
HOPE RISES FROM THE ASHES  is the sequel to HOPE FLIES ON BROKEN WINGS, by L.F. Falconer.  Christianity is little known of.  Power lies in different things, not Faith.  The rule of the majority is determined by how much coin you have, how much courage you have in using your sword and what blood flows through your veins.  Human life means nothing.  There is no value to mankind.
This is a life where even a woman is just someone to take advantage of.  Life is hard and just trying to live day by day is almost impossible.  You didn't dare go against the upper class or your life could be taken. The author lays out the story with great detail.  You can almost picture what is going on as if you are there.  Collie has become desperate in this world that is nothing but lies and hurt. She has left her tragic stricken life behind.  The loss of Dugan broke her heart forever.  Alone in a strange place, no coin and no one, she becomes the property of a Tillaman warrior.  He is hot and cold with her.  Gentle to brutal at the strike of a match.  She wants to leave and go home but she is ashamed.  She is locked in a world of lies and pain.  Ms. Falconer's character's used language that was of the time period.   The author does a wonderful job of keeping you turning those pages.  I love books that cause you to turn those pages.  If not, you're not sure if you want to finish or not. The author gave us everything possible, romance, lust, greed, action, hurt,danger and so much more.  She didn't fail us.  This book is all and then some.  Thanks to you, Ms. Falconer for writing such a good book. This is a good read for everyone.

AUTHOR
L.F. Falconer
And I shall be able to go to my grave having said, "I tried."

A true desert rat, L.F. Falconer lives in her hometown of Fallon, Nevada with her husband, Michael. She's been sporadically published over the past forty years by various Northern Nevada newspapers, has spent the past seventeen years doing her small part in training naval fighter pilots at NAS, Fallon, and in her spare time enjoys gardening, playing classical piano, oil painting, and hiking the Nevada desert.

"I have never known affluence and have no formal education, but am well taught in experience through the School of Hard Knocks, independent study, and lifelong passion of the written word. I do my best to harness fantasy and reality into a dynamic team in my not-so-sweet novels that focus on character growth through emotional turmoil. I currently have two novels published, one in the works, and three are simmering on the back burner."
