The Four Winds
by Kristin Hannah
PBR Review: (by- Linda - Mar 2019)

I love historical fiction and epic stories that expose social and political injustices. I also love stories of motherhood and strong, courageous women. So this book touched me. It covers the devasting impact of the Great Depression and the farmers during the Dust Bowl era.

The story explores the lack of compassion these people faced when they migrated to California in search of a better life. I felt a deep connection to Elsa as she struggled to survive and take care of her family. And although I didn't identify with her daughter, Loreda, I still cared for her and wanted her to succeed. Kristin Hannah captures the bleakness of the times and the desperation of these people as they faced one hardship after another, from economic and climate crises to deep prejudice and abuse. Recommend.
