Kingfisher Cross is a work of fiction in the interpersonal drama and contemporary romance subgenres. Penned by Murray Pura, it is best suited to the general adult reading audience. In this utterly charming novel, we are introduced to the residents of Kingfisher Cross, a unique location where people of different backgrounds, heritages, and cultures come together harmoniously. The plot follows different strands of love and life with the search for peace as a central theme. Many of the characters seek this in their busy lives, but it’s only in the moments when they allow themselves to slow down that they come to realize how miracles truly occur.
Murray Pura has crafted a unique style of storytelling that I have not encountered before, and it brings the very ethos of the place to life with vivid descriptions and atmospheric writing. The word pictures that are painted illuminate small-town life and populate a whole community in the reader’s mind. I found the dialogue to be most engaging and helpful in distinguishing different characters from one another as the narrative deepened. There was a keen through-line of history and world heritage that became extremely pertinent to the modern world and current events. It was deeply meaningful and gave me much to consider even after setting the book down. I would recommend Kingfisher Cross to fans of interpersonal and cross-cultural dramas that provide much food for thought.
