Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava—in all other ways a normal girl—is born with the wings of a bird. In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naïve to the twisted motives of others. Others like the pious Nathaniel Sorrows, who mistakes Ava for an angel and whose obsession with her grows until the night of the Summer Solstice celebration. That night, the skies open up, rain and feathers fill the air, and Ava’s quest and her family’s saga build to a devastating crescendo. First-time author Leslye Walton has constructed a layered and unforgettable mythology of what it means to be born with hearts that are tragically, exquisitely human.
Why I’m Crushing:
This is one of those simple but gorgeous covers. I think it is just so lovely. The yellow feather on the blue background really makes it pop and I love the feather itself, too, very simple and elegant. Even the title is beautiful! This cover drew me in and when I read the synopsis, I knew I had to add it to my list. I hope the words inside are as beautiful as the cover is!
