Wren Crawford and Kit Rhodes are the main characters in this final sequel to Shades of light and Remember me. These women are companions in grief, sorrow and mental health needs. Wren is an artist, very committed to Van Gogh’s paintings, fragile emotionally and depending on direction and friendship from Katherine (Kit). Katherine is at the end of her time as spiritual director at New Hope. Will the board choose the right person to succeed Kit, how will this affect Wren and her painting and work at New Hope?

Feathers of hope can be read as a stand alone but to truly understand the flow of the story, reading the books in order is much the best way.
