The Four Winds (Large Print / Library Binding)

Staff Pick Badge
The Four Winds By Kristin Hannah Cover Image

Staff Reviews

A stunning tale of perseverance, family, friendship, and hope, The Four Winds absolutely blew me away. Kristin Hannah describes a time in American History that is often overlooked through the eyes of characters so human I'm amazed they aren't real people. Hannah weaves the struggles of the time seamlessly with ones any mother can relate to: working 10+ hours a day for mere pennies and a son who gets into fights at school; using a rope to guide her to the barn because the dust in the air is so thick she can't see, then coming inside to an obstinate teenage daughter who just wants her dad. The reader can relate to Elsa enough that they can easily see themselves even in her most dire circumstances.

The Four Winds tells the story of an American Dream that isn't meant for everyone, and how those left behind can band together to make that dream work for them. It's one I will not soon forget.

“A brilliantly woven narrative set during the Dust Bowl years on the High Plains of Texas, The Four Winds is a story of survival that inspires us to persist. Hannah extensively researched the devastation of this climatic and agricultural phenomenon and its toll on communities, which seamlessly informs the deftly woven narrative of the life of Elsa, a woman who finds that she has more tenacity and resourcefulness than she had been raised to believe — and then some.”

From Kristin Hannah, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale and The Great Alone, comes an epic novel of love and heroism and hope, set against the backdrop of one of America's most defining eras — the Great Depression.
