A Short Story About Faith and Self-Determination

The Origin: One of my readers (on social media) sent me a picture of a mist-shrouded forest; serene but also had a touch of the ethereal to it. I knew a little bit about the reader: she was a single mom, raising a child (with some challenging circumstances affecting their behavior), and seemed to be struggling at times with what she faced. She also loved fairies, had a wonderful sense of humor and appreciation of the beauty in our world (despite all she dealt with in life). When she sent me the picture, she asked, “Can you write me a story?” I did and WINGS was the result. The revised, expanded, published version is available now.

A middle-aged man in search of his own life fulfillment and to heal wounds from the past finds a magical being–a fairy girl–who is looking for the same. How can she go on as a wingless fairy and can she trust a Man trying to help her?

WINGS (Short Fiction) by Dennis LowerySome of the comments from my early readers:

“I think this story sends a positive message to young people who are not happy with their bodies, or life situations. I enjoyed reading this short story, Dennis Lowery. Thank you.” –Hazel Payne

“That is a really good read. I quite enjoyed it.” –Jocelyne Corbiere

“That was a beautiful story, and full of meaning. Sometimes, we need to stop and fill our minds and hearts with love and tenderness for life can be very hard.” –Kathryn Nokony

“Dennis, I just loved it, actually read it twice… Forgive me but I see romance in so much, and when she asked ‘What will you do with me?’ It’s not what you wrote, but the way you wrote it, that made it come alive. Also, when she said ‘You’re a man,’ all of “his” response was so well-written. I promise not to reveal too much of the story because I encourage everyone to read it — but when each character shared their story of pain and courage; different but yet familiar, and she said: ‘To fly…’ and stated her outcome so far. I had to take a break from the story; I felt tears running down my face because it became so real to me… The ending was surprising but great. What a great message in this story… Thank you for sharing your great gift with me. A great, compelling, short story… ‘Wings’ touched me deeply, your writing moves me!” –Bernice Joe

“Just beautiful! I cried a few tears as I read this… Every time I think Dennis Lowery can’t write any better, he does.
