    1. Advance review copy kindly provided by author and GR friend Kaye Park Hinckley. Many people--including some fledgling writers--think that beginning authors strengthen their literary wings on short stories before soaring off into serious authorship with the production of novels. First of all, this is based on the false assumption that short stories are easier to write than novels. There are very good arguments to show that this is not the case. But all one needs to do is to make a survey of liter [...]

    2. Advance Reader Copy provided kindly by author Kaye Park Hinckley. This soon to be released collection is a fine, fine work of thought provoking short stories. Themes that center on free-will, redemptive opportunities, impacts of crossroads types of decisions, response to offered forgiveness, and chances to escape from poor choices. Unlike some Christian perspective writings, this is not at all an in your face, confrontational, attempt at evangelism. Although not subtle with her belief sets, Hin [...]

    3. Kay Hinckley is simply a wonderful writer. She writes assuredly, with strong poetic, even lyrical, undertones. Her stories are involved less with the facts of her characters’ lives than with their interior landscapes. I was much impressed with Hinckley’s compassion for her characters. In the opening story, she moves without seeming effort within the kaleidoscope of time shifts of a person with Alzheimer’s–and to touching effect. In another story she assumes the persona of asophisticat [...]

    4. It was my great privilege to hear Catholic writer Kaye Park Hinckley speak in New Orleans last week. Though I’ve not finished Birds of a Feather, I’m confident it will prove excellent. Named a finalist for the 2014 Tuscany Prize, Mrs. Hinckley’s recent work follows 2013’s A Hunger in the Heart – a challenging book which may yet capture the Willie Morris Award for Southern Fiction. After listening to Mrs. Hinckley’s bold, insightful speech, I see why she was asked to address a major C [...]

    5. At first glance, the front cover of "Birds of A Feather" (and the very title itself) might suggest to a prospective reader a collection of quaint, safe, comfortable, and reassuring stories. Well, if you are looking for easy reading that won't challenge you to think then you might want to look elsewhere. Kaye Hinckley's writing has teeth. By that I mean that she writes in a way that chews away at the surface of things to get to the heart of the matter, as Graham Greene might have put it. The writ [...]

    6. I simply loved the stories in this book. The characters were all battling with issues that were pulling their souls one way or another and the anxiety was definitely after the best of them. From a man battling addiction to a young woman battling abuse or the usual dealing with adulatory and death at the same time as the devil. The stories are just much more complicated than this as Kaye Park Hinckley writes in her best form to allow all of her characters to know they have a choice in life betwee [...]

    7. Birds of a Feather is a collection of ten short stories set in the American South that boldly explore a range of human emotion and brokenness.
