Staff Reviews

Grit and perseverance are two words that describe Kristin Hannah’s masterful new novel. It is the story of Elsa, who in 1934 leaves behind the dust storms and drought that blighted the Texas family farm to bring her two children to California in search of a better life, only to find a more hardscrabble time as a migrant worker. But there is also beauty in her story, along with resilience, love, and what it means to be a family. An unforgettable book.

“A brilliantly woven narrative set during the Dust Bowl years on the High Plains of Texas, The Four Winds is a story of survival that inspires us to persist. Hannah extensively researched the devastation of this climatic and agricultural phenomenon and its toll on communities, which seamlessly informs the deftly woven narrative of the life of Elsa, a woman who finds that she has more tenacity and resourcefulness than she had been raised to believe — and then some.”

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.
