About the Book

Walking on Hidden Wings Title: Walking on Hidden Wings: A Novel of the Roaring Twenties 
Author: Rachel Scott McDaniel 
Publisher: Kregel Publications 
Release Date: April 23, 2024 
Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Geneva Ashcroft Hayes's marriage to a newspaper mogul might have been arranged, but the New York socialite is devastated when her husband's plane crashes a few short months after their nuptials. When the authorities suspect murder, Geneva sets out on a wild mission to find his killer--and to prove it wasn't her!

When mysterious notes surface pointing to Geneva's guilt in his death, they only strengthen her resolve. She has little to go on except for a detective friend's cryptic list of locations connected to her dead spouse. When the friend also disappears, she trades her sparkling gowns for coveralls and pilot goggles. 

Armed with a new name and career as a wingwalker and barnstormer, she travels from town to town in hopes of unearthing clues and locating her missing friend. But Geneva discovers that her past may not belong to her . . . what she once believed as truth may be nothing more than lies and deception. 

"A tangled web, a sleuthing adventure, a rekindled romance . . . Walking on Hidden Wings has it all."

--Rachel Fordham, author of The Letter Tree 

"Fans of intelligent mysteries, butterfly-inducing romance, and the Roaring Twenties, prepare yourselves--Walking on Hidden Wings will sweep you away to the skies! McDaniel's lyrical prose is a delight, and readers will be fascinated by the daring beginnings of aviation. A true gem." 

--Joanna Barker, author of A Heart Worth Stealing

A gripping mystery set in the Roaring 20's, full of secrets and suspense!

Engaging plot that unfolds in a non-linear timeline, as Geneva Ashcroft searches for answers to the questions surrounding her new husband's untimely crash. There is a lot going on, and I loved how we unravel the mystery along with Geneva, as she explores a different side of life as a wing-walker and barnstormer. She is determined, and unwilling to give up. I liked the strong themes of faith and enduring love. 

A novel that kept me guessing throughout, with strong characters, and a riveting plot. Hard to review in some ways because SPOILERS! But completely worth the read, with rich setting, and excellent pacing. Highly recommend!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
