    1 thought on “The Broken Wing”

    1. A re-read for me. The second in the Warrender Saga. This takes place six months after A Song Begins. The title refers to a wooden angel that sits on the concert promoter hero's desk. He keeps it even though it isn't perfect and he's a perfectionist. The secretary-with-an-amazing-voice heroine directly compares herself to the angel because she, too is "broken" since something is wrong with her foot making her "lame." If you can get past that antiquated notion of "crippled people" being less than, [...]

    2. While I adored A Song Begins, the first Warrender Saga romance, the second, The Broken Wing, didn't offer the same magic. The heroine is quite likeable, as is the hero, but the harping on her "lameness" really grated after a while, not a terribly long while either - like by the third chapter. What I cannot deny is what a fine prose writer Burchell was and how her capacity for subtlety, even in characterization, and her bringing to life of the opera-world setting, leave her without match in the g [...]

    3. Condescending about disability, and the hero's a jerk to the heroine for most of the book. I really, really, really loved the heroine Tessa's interactions with Oscar and Anthea, though, and would have loved this as a coming-of-age and opera-awesomeness tale, had the romance not been dreadful.

    4. A sweet heroine and a jerky hero (he actually tells his ex-fiancee that he plans to marry the heroine before he gives her any idea he is serious about her), but well written. Somewhat condescending toward the "crippled" heroine, but it's a novel of its time (1966). If you are an Oscar and Anthea Warrender fan, they are in the book quite a bit.

    5. Enjoyed reading the book. Just did not see how they fall in love and what made the H wanted to marry her if it was hero-warship in the h part, secretaries always in love with their bosses.

    6. GoodTessa is such a sweet and endearing character. Always held down by her mother and sister because of her disability makes you want so much for her. I like the plot and it's well written.

    7. Ugh. The heroine has all the will and personality of a wet dishrag, while the hero is an entitled ass who spends most of the book flirting with her sister before telling her he prefers her, his submissive and broken secretary.

    8. 3.5 stars. I am thoroughly enjoying reading my way through this lovely vintage romance series.

    9. This is more a 3.5 star book. I would have given it 4 stars but most of it was too predictable. A good read - I like to root for the underdog!

    10. Mary BurchellI love these little older books. I miss my collection of those books I used to read over and over again. This is a cute story. Thank you Endeavour Press for this story and the other free weekly gifts.
