I wrote Where the Wind Blows over twenty years ago; it was my first novel and I loved every minute of it. When you write historical stories there is a whole kit and caboodle of factual variables that one may need to authenticate a story. In the days I was researching these facts there was no internet and so I had to go to England a number of times from Canada to spend days in Libraries and find what I needed. At that time my sister, Yvonne, who lived in England was a wonderful help and took two buses to the records offices and literally wrote by hand pages of information which she had to decipher from hand written documents. I used quite a bit of that research to weave the many twists and turns together. I am eternally grateful to the memory of my dear sister Yvonne who has passed but who I know would dearly love me to publish this novel.
I am a Leicester girl who is now living in Canada and have been for many years. I am also someone who loves historical novels which prompted me to write this story. I started my website to promote this novel and then I got into Universal Laws and somehow Where the Wind Blows got lost in the process.
However, I decided to take another look at Where the Wind Blows and a strong voice was screaming out for me to publish this novel. Where the Wind Blows is so very different from anything I have published to this date. It is a murder mystery but draws to it the changes in the social structure and political attitudes of not only Leicester but England at that time. It spans from the years of 1848 – 1879.
The journey takes the reader on a roller-coaster of deception, hidden secrets and murder.
Here is the back cover:
However, Ben is sharp-witted himself and through some ingenious ideas he becomes a man of influential authority. He changes his identity to George Morley and becomes a forceful character with intentions to unearth the men who framed him and bring them to justice. Regardless, he is also a compassionate man and helps those impoverished people of his past which changes the course of his life.
Bridget Turner enters George’s life when she is only fifteen years of age. She is almost raped by the farmer she works for when George comes across them and saves her. She is younger than his own children and his heart sorrowfully goes out to her. Their paths move in many different directions until eventually they meet up years later through the affluent Giles family, who are behind the set up and his imprisonment. Although George doesn’t suspect the Giles, he constantly finds himself involved with them.
George again saves Bridget by helping her and her family out of the poverty-stricken life they are living. The friendship between George and Bridget builds until Bridget feels more like a daughter to George and he a father to Bridget. However, he is unaware of the heartbreaking secret that not only Bridget holds but through the Giles she has innocently involved his son, Quinton in. This deceitful connection in turn deeply hurts the one person that both Bridget and Quinton look up to and adore, George Morley.
Can they ever get passed this heartrending deceit?
I invite you to look out for Where the Wind Blows coming soon to Amazon and all online bookstores.
