Wings Over Poppies Synopsis

Wings Over Poppies cover


Perfection. One word. Three syllables. Every reason why I’ll never have the one thing I truly want. I stand dutifully on the pedestal he’s built, waiting for the day he truly sees me.

Then one amazing night, he lets down his walls, only to leave me the next day.

Years have passed, and I’ve tried to move on with my life. But I still dream of him. I still miss him everyday. The memories haunt me. How can I look to the future when my past remains a mystery? The time has come to find the boy who stole my heart and ran away without a word.

But not everyone who is lost wants to be found.

My name is Alexandra Fontaine, and this is my story of unfinished love.

Wings Over Poppies is book #2 in The Over Series and can be read as a standalone novel.

Wings Over Poppies Excerpt:

“My life is such a mess, Alex. I can barely keep my head above water. I’m constantly looking for a way to get in front of all these obstacles in my life, but I always seem to come up short.” I need her to understand where I’m coming from, so I continue. “When you look at me, I want you to see in me what I see in you. I keep trying to find the right path. I’m on my way to becoming who I want to be, who I need to be for us to work. I need you to give me that time.”


She remains silent, and the air feels crisp and light as the weight of my words finally lifts from my chest. For the first time in months, I can breathe deep. If nothing else, she knows how I feel. What she does with that knowledge is up to her.

“That’s funny,” she whispers with a sarcastic laugh. “Because you? The guy standing in front of me right now? You’re exactly who I want you to be, West. As is.”
