Cal Thompson is going a little mad over the Christmas holiday, stuck in a tiny house with fourteen members of his immediate family. There’s no privacy and no boyfriend to help him cope—because Philip is still a secret, though not for long. Cal’s family knows he’s bisexual, but they’ve always assumed Cal would marry a woman and be fruitful and multiply. Just as he’s ready to set the record straight, his parents tell the family they’re selling the family house and tip this introvert’s world on edge.
Philip Sherman arrives at Cal’s family home to find his lover mourning the loss of his home, paralyzed by the abrupt and unexpected announcement that trumped his own. Though Philip takes the setback in stride, they won’t be able to avoid the calling of their hearts for long: Cal needs to reveal the truth of his relationship with Philip to his family, and Philip has a question he’s desperate to have answered.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2013 Advent Calendar package “Heartwarming”.
My View – Story:
Feathers From the Sky by Posy Roberts is a perfect story for those of us that love the magic of Christmas and the beauty of a happily ever after. It isn’t a boy meets boy story. It is one man’s journey from the closet to the acceptance of his large and loving family.
There is no major baddy in this story. It is low on conflict and high on love. Cal and Philip make such a perfect couple. From the minute Philip comes on page, you just know they are perfect for each other. I loved the family’s reaction to the relationship. I loved the way Philip mere presence calmed Cal.
I believe Feathers From the Sky will be a perennial favorite for me.
My View – Narration:
Paul Morey is usually a favorite. He almost didn’t disappoint this time. However, one of the characters was portrayed with a decidedly Irish accent… A character who was supposed to have only a hint of a British accent. Kind of through me off that character a bit. Everything else was well done, however.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
