Overview

Plain and dutiful, Sophia Hess has lived most of her life without ever knowing genuine love. Her professor husband had married her for the convenience of having a typist for his scholarly papers. The discovery of a dark secret opens her eyes to the truth about her marriage and her husband.

Eventually nephew Patrick and his wife, Rachel, take Sophia into their home, and she observes from a careful distance their earnest faith and the simple gifts of kindness they generously bestow upon her and others-this in spite of an unthinkable tragedy they've suffered. Dare she unlock the door behind which she stalwartly conceals her broken heart?

An insightful and moving portrayal of the transforming power of love

What People are Saying About This

"Turner, who has taught literature herself for many years, writes with elegant precision and the leisurely pacing of the book perfectly captures the lengthened days of the aging. Understated and unsentimental, Winter Birds is a quietly memorable novel about quiet grace."--(Peter J. Leithart, Touchstone)
