I am a true Southerner from a small town in Alabama. That being said, I like to sit down and enjoy a good FICTION and while reading The Wind of Destiny, it literally took me on a journey back home to the true south. The accent she portrays is true. Catherine is truly a gifted writer. She has written a book that a teenager to senior can enjoy.

I enjoyed this book. The writer did a good job and did good research on the time period. Some of it related to her family. I also liked that the language was clean. Good read.
Even though The Wind of Destiny is temporarily out of print, you can still get an Author Signed copy from my upcoming book signings. See my blog page.
