A Fickle Wind

By Elizabeth Bourne
Published by Delancey Press
ISBN 978-1-907205-29-3
Category Romance
Summer 2015


A rags to riches story chronicled initially through the eyes of a child born into war torn Britain who refused to accept that the lackluster life she knew would be all she could possibly expect. 

The escape route was via Canada, where the impossible seemed possible and her hopes were nourished and thrived. A page turning journey with strong characters strewn with joy, sorrow, laughter and tears; a compelling first novel. 

Inspirational: when you don’t know where to turn and difficult challenges are blown in by a fickle wind, hold on for dear life and you will weather the storm. You will awaken one morning to an azure, cloudless sky, and a zephyr will gently stir the leaves and open your heart to a new beginning.

Loved this rags to riches story!
A well-crafted, page-turning book. One review I read stated that the author had left her soul on the pages. An excellent observation which I think I shall borrow to add to my comments. A most enjoyable read with many different life experiences captured in one woman's life. I recommend this book.
A gifted storyteller who gives her characters depth and brings them to life.
A powerful story of a woman whose determination forges a brilliant future for herself and her family.
