Can't Wait Wednesday: The Four Winds

Can't Wait Wednesday is hosted by Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah
Pub. Date: February 9, 2021

Goodreads says, "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."

I loved Hannah's The Nightingale, so I am thrilled to hear she is writing another historical novel.  The Dust Bowl seems like a very powerful setting for a novel. Out of the Dust is still one of my favorite novels--so powerful! What do you guys think?


  1. I just came across this one recently! I didn't read her last book, but this one really appeals to me!

    1. Did you read The Nightingale? So good! Thanks for visiting, Angela!

  2. Kristin Hannah is one of my favourite authors. I think there is only one book by her that I haven’t read yet. I am currently rereading her books that is how much I love her books. Hope you enjoy this book when it comes out in February.
