Product description

Review

"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



"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

"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



"Seven Wings to Glory captures the mind, heart and soul of its heroine. Kathleen M. Rodgers' gift of storytelling is extraordinary."

--Readers' Favorite Reviews



"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



"A well-crafted book that allows readers to experience actions right along with the characters."

--InD'tale Magazine

"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



"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



"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



"I really loved Seven Wings to Glory! Kathleen M. Rodgers has the gift of making you care deeply about her characters, and in this sequel to Johnnie Come Lately she explores some important issues: Johnnie's son is serving in the military in Afghanistan, and back home, Johnnie is dealing with the impacts of racism on her friends and her town. 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

Rodgers' fourth novel, The Flying Cutterbucks, is a 2021 WILLA Literary Award in Contemporary Fiction from Women Writing the West.

Her second novel, Johnnie Come Lately, has garnered multiple awards, including the 2015 Gold Medal for literary fiction from Military Writers Society of America. The novel has been featured in Family Magazine, Stars & Stripes, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Southern Writers Magazine, and on "The Author's Corner" on Public Radio." The audio edition is narrated by Grammy® Award-winning vocalist and Broadway actress Leslie Ellis. Thorndike Press, the leading large print publisher in the United States, released Johnnie Come Lately and Seven Wings to Glory in hardcover large print editions in early 2018.

Rodgers is also the author of the award-winning novel, The Final Salute, featured in USA Today, The Associated Press, and Military Times.

She and her husband, Tom, a retired USAF fighter pilot/commercial airline pilot, reside in a suburb of North Texas with two rescue dogs. After raising two sons, she became a grandmother and is at work on her fifth novel.
