Johnnie Kitchen is finally living her dream, attending college and writing a column for the local paper. She adores her husband Dale and chocolate Labrador Brother Dog, and they reside in a comfortable home in the small town of Portion in North Texas. Their three children are thriving and nearly grown. But Johnnie is rattled when her youngest boy Cade goes to fight in Afghanistan. The less frequent his emails, the more she frets for his safety. On the home front, Johnnie learns that Portion is not the forward-thinking town she believed. A boy Cade's age, inflamed by a liberal bumper sticker and the sight of Johnnie's black friend Whit, attacks them with the N-word and a beer bottle. After Johnnie writes about the incident in her column, a man named Roosevelt reaches out with shameful stories from Portion's untold history. More tears and triumphs will follow, as Johnnie's eyes are opened to man's capacity for hate and the power of love and forgiveness. The sequel to Johnnie Come Lately.

Reviews

"This book is terrific [....] Rodgers' stories are imaginative and engaging. No wonder I think she's one of the best. I love the way she takes you step by step though Johnnie's life, whether it is about her family or her writing. I loved this book so much I was sorry I finished it in one day. Rodgers shows what a family goes though when one of them is off to war. My heart goes out to these families. With what is going on now in our country, Kathleen connects on all of this. Great book! Read Johnnie Come Lately first, then this one. You will love them both."--Sharon Salituro for Fresh Fiction "Rodgers' fiction is both sensuous and gritty, and her references to people and topics currently in the news make this story riveting."--Drema Hall Berkheimer, author of Running on Red Dog Road: And Other Perils of an Appalachian Childhood "With empathy and a true sense of place, Rodgers examines small town racism, the tragedy and heroism of military life, and the multilayered pain of family secrets."--Johnnie Bernhard, author of A Good Girl "A well-crafted book that allows readers to experience actions right along with the characters."--InD'tale Magazine "I adore the flawed, imperfect, deeply loving, and tough-as-nails Kitchen family: I would read a hundred books about them, and I will read anything Kathleen M. Rodgers writes."--Andria Williams, author of The Longest Night and founder of Military Spouse Book Review "Seven Wings to Glory humorously captures the gamut of emotions common to military families dealing with deployments, homecomings, and the struggle to make everyday living as routine as their civilian counterparts."--Karen Spears Zacharias (Gold Star Daughter) and author of Burdy "Johnnie Kitchen is the kind of character all fiction writers dream of creating. Kathleen Rodgers is a master at writing women's fiction and proves it in her new novel, Seven Wings To Glory."--Ann Hite, award-winning author of Sleeping Above Chaos, fourth novel in the Black Mountain series "Seven Wings to Glory captures the mind, heart and soul of its heroine. Kathleen M. Rodgers' gift of storytelling is extraordinary."--Readers' Favorite Reviews "Rodgers depicts her characters fully and empathetically, inspiring her readers to have the same grace exhibited by the Kitchen family and friends."--Terri Barnes, author of Spouse Calls: Messages From a Military Life, a collection of her columns for Stars & Stripes "Kathleen M. Rodgers has the gift of making you care deeply about her characters. I had a hard time putting this book down until I reached the end!"--Deborah Kalb, author of George Washington and the Magic Hat and Haunting Legacy, co-authored with Marvin Kalb "Kathleen Rodgers is a true painter/artist of words."--Susan Reichert, Editor-in-Chief, Southern Writers Magazine "Kathleen Rodgers skillfully shows how no town is small enough and no family perfect enough to be outside the reach of war, racism, and the heartbreak life hands out on a regular basis to all those who love."--Elizabeth Marro, author of Casualties

An outstanding sequel to Johnnie Come Lately! For those of us who got wrapped up in Johnnie Kitchen’s life and worried about her family incessantly, Seven Wings to Glory picks up right where JCL left off, so we don’t miss a thing! Rodgers wrings every emotion from you, making you laugh one moment and tear-up the next. Well done.
