Audio Book Summary

'Kristin Hannah is a classic storyteller and The Four Winds sees her at the top of her game' - Matt Haig

‘Powerful and compelling’ - Delia Owens, author of Where The Crawdads Sing

'The Four Winds seems eerily prescient in 2021 . . . Its message is galvanizing and hopeful' - New York Times

The Four Winds is a deeply moving, powerful story about the strength and resilience of women and the bond between mother and daughter, by the multi-million copy number one bestselling author of The Nightingale, Kristin Hannah.

She will discover the best of herself in the worst of times . . .

Texas, 1934. Elsa Martinelli had finally found the life she’d yearned for. A family, a home and a livelihood on a farm on the Great Plains. But when drought threatens all she and her community hold dear, Elsa’s world is shattered to the winds.

Fearful of the future, when Elsa wakes to find her husband has fled, she is forced to make the most agonizing decision of her life. Fight for the land she loves or take her beloved children, Loreda and Ant, west to California in search of a better life. Will it be the land of milk and honey? Or will their experience challenge every ounce of strength they possess?

From the overriding love of a mother for her child, the value of female friendship and the ability to love again – against all odds, Elsa’s incredible journey is a story of survival, hope and what we do for the ones we love.

Praise for Kristin Hannah:

‘A rich, compelling novel of love, sacrifice and survival’ - Kate Morton

‘A masterclass’ - Karen Swan

    One of my favourite books and the narrator was truely committed to the characters. It is worth persevering through the first quarter as it sets the scene for later in the book. Not being from America I found this American history fascinating & a sad part of its history which led me to researching it more. Loved the author & narrator interviews at the end too.

    I did not enjoy the initial section of the book. It came across as frivolous and sentimental. I am very glad that I pushed through though as it definitely got stronger and deeper - and I ended up loving it. Such an interesting (but terrible) time in US history and I came to love the main characters. I would recommend this book.
