"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. 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"-- Provided by publisher.

How much difference a friend could make. How one person could lift your spirit just enough to keep you upright.

I could not stop listening to this book. I listened while I was driving, while I did housework and well into the night. Kristin Hannah has the best ability to make you feel; you will feel fear, love, desperation, and hope.

Bleak and descriptive, this is a story for when you need a sad book. I appreciated learning about the conditions of farmers during the Dust Bowl and severe drought during the Great Depression. This felt so current, with so many natural disasters, unemployment, and immigration debates going on at the moment. The real story here is a mother/daughter story, fraught with it's own complications, and the will to survive. This was not an easy listen, I felt sad, outraged, and heartbroken; but it also seemed like I was reading a piece of history that I didn't know anything about, and that made it worth it.
