Praise for Birds of a Feather
Birds of a Feather, voted one of the six Best Fiction Books for the first half of 2014 by Englewood Review of Books: "Kaye Park Hinckley's stories give a fuller picture of the Christian faith. Like a bird-watcher, the thoughtful reader can even learn to spot the flutter of redemption in these stories."
--Englewood Book Review of Books
"The short stories in Birds of a Feather are richly imagined tales full of finely drawn characters who demonstrate how people estranged from faith can bumble through life so distracted by worldly horrors and delights, so full of themselves, that they don't even notice faint nudges of grace that stir in their souls or recognize subtle emanations of the holy that abound in the world around them."
--The Catholic World Report
2014 First-Runner Up for the Poets and Writers Maureen Egen Award for her novel in progress, Faithful.
The first story in this collection sits a reader bolt upright. Two stories in, you marvel at this storyteller, who sends us flying over new country, a landscape of modern parables where faith runs river-deep. Kaye Park Hinckley seems to overflow with beautiful, heartbreaking love and lessons. A world with broken wings can surely make use of such stories.
--Charles McNair, author of Pickett's Charge and Land O'Goshen
"With masterful control and skillful writing, Kaye Park Hinckley boldly explores a wide range of wounded souls in this amazing collection of stories, ultimately finding love in the unloveable, and grace in the sufferings of a complex world."
--Cassandra King, author of The Sunday Wife
