About the Book

Title: Walking on Hidden Wings: A Novel of the Roaring Twenties
Author: Rachel Scott McDaniel
Publisher: Kregel Publications
Release Date: April 23, 2024
Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Geneva Ashcroft Hayes's marriage to a newspaper mogul might have been arranged, but the New York socialite is devastated when her husband's plane crashes a few short months after their nuptials. When the authorities suspect murder, Geneva sets out on a wild mission to find his killer--and to prove it wasn't her!

When mysterious notes surface pointing to Geneva's guilt in his death, they only strengthen her resolve. She has little to go on except for a detective friend's cryptic list of locations connected to her dead spouse. When the friend also disappears, she trades her sparkling gowns for coveralls and pilot goggles.

Armed with a new name and career as a wingwalker and barnstormer, she travels from town to town in hopes of unearthing clues and locating her missing friend. But Geneva discovers that her past may not belong to her . . . what she once believed as truth may be nothing more than lies and deception.

"A tangled web, a sleuthing adventure, a rekindled romance . . . Walking on Hidden Wings has it all."

--Rachel Fordham, author of The Letter Tree

"Fans of intelligent mysteries, butterfly-inducing romance, and the Roaring Twenties, prepare yourselves--Walking on Hidden Wings will sweep you away to the skies! McDaniel's lyrical prose is a delight, and readers will be fascinated by the daring beginnings of aviation. A true gem."

--Joanna Barker, author of A Heart Worth Stealing

My Thoughts

Walking on Hidden Wings: A Novel of the Roaring Twenties is written by one of my favorite historical authors, Rachel Scott McDaniel. Her writing always transports you back in time and you find yourself in a world that you did not know you needed. In this story we meet Geneva Ashcroft Hayes. Her father is controlling and he is very intimidating. Her marriage was arranged to a newspaper mogul, Warren. However, his plane crashes a few months after they said I do.

Suddenly she finds herself the suspect in his murder. They find his plane tampered with. However, Geneva knows she is innocent and wished she would have shared the threatening messages that she had received. She knows she needs to clear her name. She has a list of clues from a private investigator and she knows she needs to find out who is behind all of this and why.

Geneva decides to change her appearance and leave town. She buys herself a Jenny plane. Which there were so many left over from the war, you just needed cash, not a license. She starts to travel and performing wing walking stunts. The descriptions to these scenes is truly captivating.

This book has the perfect blend of history, romance and mystery. I absolutely loved it.
