Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Four Winds

Kristin Hannah
Expected publication date: February 9, 2021
From 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.

Texas, 1934. Millions are out of work and a drought has broken the Great Plains. Farmers are fighting to keep their land and their livelihoods as the crops are failing, the water is drying up, and dust threatens to bury them all. One of the darkest periods of the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl era, has arrived with a vengeance.

In this uncertain and dangerous time, Elsa Martinelli—like so many of her neighbors—must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or go west, to California, in search of a better life. The Four Winds is an indelible portrait of America and the American Dream, as seen through the eyes of one indomitable woman whose courage and sacrifice will come to define a generation. - from Goodreads

Kristin Hannah is an author I've enjoyed for many years, and I really like the sound of this book.  The Great Depression/Dust Bowl era is not one I come across in books often, but it is so quintessentially American and I'm really looking forward to it.

  2. I've only ever read The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. I currently have The Great Alone on my bedside and hoping to get to it soon. And this on is certainly on wishlist despite only having read one of her books.

  8. This sounds promising! that time period is fascinating and seems eerily relevant given the state of America these days- a time of great upheaval, even if it was of a different variety.
