About the Novel
Fearless: On the Wings of Forgiveness is a story about five former roommates who gather together years later to celebrate one member’s milestone birthday at a tranquil vacation cottage overlooking the Pacific Ocean. In a weekend interspersed with walks at the beach, local pub life, home-cooked meals and California wine, the companions reveal compelling stories of jealousy, perfection, abandonment, and betrayal. By reunion’s end, the healing power of friendship and the unquestioned stamina of forgiveness secure a foundation for self-renewal.
Amazon Reader Review
“The author writes with great imagery and descriptions. Images that leave you breathless, feeling like you are at the ocean’s edge, in the vacation home, on the hike, breathing the fresh, crisp air of the Northern Coastline. I especially loved Costick’s use of animals to ground her characters. These five women face life’s changes with perfect amounts of reality, humor, and intrigue. The characters are well developed and are dealing with the life choices they have made, and where those choices have led them. I have friends who fit the description of these women, who are going through the same struggles with men, careers, perfection, love, and forgiveness. Costick’s book is an engaging and illuminating look into the lives of women. The author creates deep characters with simple flaws. I couldn’t help but enjoy reading this book. Fearless has the right blend of elements that make for a good read: endearing, strong women characters, cheating men, credible dialogue, a little romance and intrigue that will keep you interested to the last page.”—LLH
