Absolutely breathtakingly, amazingly, inspirational, brilliantly written. Everyone needs to take a second to read this Free Amazon Read (well it was when I got it) I normally steer far from "war" books because they break my heart and this one did that and more! I loved the characters and the story :) ( )

Angelina is still trying to get past the death of her fiancé that occurred three years ago. She has kept herself very busy and has stayed away from most social situations, preferring to spend her free time alone. When she has a bit of car trouble a nice man stops and helps her. Later while jogging around the lake she falls in and is having trouble getting back out. A strong hand reaches down and grabs her writs and pulls her out. It turns out to be the same man who helped her with her car. Joshua. She finally agreed to go to a party with her friend, Lucy to welcome a friend back from over seas. It turns out to be Joshua. They share a rink and decide to leave the party... together.
This romantic story is well written with great characterization. Have a few tissues close by though as it is also a very emotional story. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be looking for more from this fine author. ( )

I enjoyed this book so much. It was such a truly sweet and loving and sad at times story of a girl that had already lost one love in her life. Then when she finally gives in to falling in love again it is a wonderful time for them both. They both was afraid of giving their hearts to anyone for very different reasons but fell hard in love. When Angelina got word that Joshua was MIA and presumed dead she fell to pieces and even her best friend could not bring her out of such a deep depression. I don't want to give anything away but some things do happen for a reason and this story was such an awesome love story even with the sad parts and all the fear. I sure wish it would have been a little bit longer but D.G. Torrens knew what she was doing with the ending. I loved this book very much and would recommend it to anyone that loves to read a good heartbreaking yet at the same time happy love story. Thanks Dawn for the honor of being able to read this book. It was a great story and you did a great job with it. :) ( )

I have read several of D.G. Torrens's powerful and moving war poems on her blog and expected Broken Wings to be no less deep and poignant. It lived up to expectation.

Angelina is a young woman who had tragically lost her fiancé. She had become a recluse, of sorts, until she meets Joshua. Naturally, she is horrified when she discovers this dashing man whom she is drawn to is a bomb disposal expert for the British army. Angelina overrides her fear, however, and allows herself to be swept up into a whirlwind romance, which ends days later with Joshua returning to his post. Three excruciating months elapse before they are together again. Upon his return, Angelina learns that Joshua's next assignment is in Afghanistan. Not long after his deployment, what every man, woman, and child who has a loved one in armed forces fears happens-- there is a knock at Angelina's door.

Through her writing, D.G. Torrens shows her passion and respect for the men and women who risk their lives to serve their country and protect life and liberty. She pours all of that empathy, esteem, and her heart into this beautiful tribute to love, sacrifice, and the enduring human spirit. The end of this heart-wrenching love story brought back the emotions I had experienced when reading the end of The Little Princess, another war story about a strong, persevering female who wouldn't give up, either. If you're looking for more than just another boy-meets-girl romance, Broken Wings fills the bill. ( )
