Wonderfully Descriptive, beautifully written

Sue - Paper Plus Masterton - February 2021

Kristin Hannah has an eclectic backlist that has drawn a wide audience who have loved individual books she has written. In recent novels she has taken elements of nature in varied wilderness settings and explored survival themes and resilience of character. Four Winds holds to that template and is an ‘epic novel set in an epic time’. “1934, Texas…millions are out of work, they’re not just hungry, they’re desperate. A monster drought has broken the Great Plains and farmers are fighting to keep their land and livelihoods as crops fail, the waters dry up and dust threatens to bury them all. This is the Dust Bowl era and a dangerous time. Eliza Martinelli, like many others must make an agonising choice – fight for the land she loves or go west to California. This is a compelling, agonising story and a woman trying to choose the least-terrible of the options. It’s very much a portrait of America and and the American dream…wonderfully descriptive, strong characters, beautifully written.”
