Catching the Wind
Maple leaves draped over the treehouse window, the silvery fronds linked together like chain mail to protect the boy and girl playing inside. ~First line
Oh my, this book’s cover art catches my breath! I’m instantly drawn to the girl in the wind, the title piques my curiosity, and I want to learn what stories lie beneath the cover.
And this story starts with a bang! One moment two children are playing carelessly in a treehouse, and the next moment their lives are changed forever. I am pulled into 1940 Germany very quickly, and then flawlessly transitioned into 2017 England in this dual-time period historical. But I must say, I was mighty eager to return to the 1940s period, to find out the outcome of chapter one’s hook. I love when, try as I may, I can’t find a stopping place…just one more chapter…just one more chapter…
Rage shot like an arrow through Dietmar’s chest, his heart pounding as he reached for the door handle … And he’d never forget what he saw. ~Excerpt from Catching the Wind
