Publisher's Summary

"Feathers - no matter what size or shape or color - are all the same, if you think about them. They're soft. Delicate. But the secret thing about feathers is...they are very strong."
In the pre-Katrina glow of New Orleans, Amanda Salassi is anxious about chaperoning her daughter's sixth-grade field trip to the Big Easy during Halloween. And then her worst fears come true. Her daughter's best friend, Sarah, disappears amid the magic and revelry - gone, without a trace. Unable to cope with her guilt, Amanda's daughter sinks into depression. And Amanda's husband turns destructive as he watches his family succumb to grief. Before long, Amanda's whole world has collapsed. Amanda knows she has to save herself before it's too late. As she continues to search for Sarah, she embarks on a personal journey, seeking hope and purpose in the wake of so much tragedy and loss.
Set amid the murky parishes of rural Louisiana and told through the eyes of two women who confront the darkest corners of humanity with quiet and unbreakable faith, The Feathered Bone is Julie Cantrell's master portrait of love in a fallen world.

Will remind you that you are stronger than you think you are.

This book ripped my heart out and made me cry............many times, but in the end reminded me that we should never lose hope and to never forget that no matter what happens to us in this life on earth...... that we are always loved. With hope we can get through. With love we will find strength.

A Different Christian Story Of Faith

I really enjoyed this story...the faith of Sara is amazing. Coming from a background similar I immediately connected with Amanda. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is I felt there were times in the story that the author was verbose-made me wonder if she got paid by the word se wrote.
