The Four Winds
Kristin Hannah, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale and The Great Alone, transports readers to 1934 Texas, where Elsa Martinelli faces a dilemma.
With the Great Depression fully enveloping the Lone Star State and millions out of work, severe drought ushers in the Dust Bowl era. Does Elsa stay and fight to preserve what's left of her in-laws' beloved home and farmland? Or take her two children and go west to California with its lure of a better life? With a first printing of 1.5 million copies, Hannah's historical novel mines enduring themes of pride through work, what it means to be an outsider and providing for one's family above all.
