    Fern F Musselwhite has brought this story to life, you can smell the salt in the sea breeze from Islamorada, feel the tragedy in Boston Windblown will draw you in and make you ponder the choices you have made in your life are you following your dreams looking for happiness or just running from life It will also make you think, not only about the choices you have made, but also about the choice s others have made in their life How did their choice affect their life and your life Along with the reasons for the choice s they made This author brings all these thoughts to life, from life in a small town in Massachusetts to Islamorada, Florida, and on to tragedy in Boston involving Charlie Right or wrong, no one can answer definitively, we must each follow our hearts and learn to live with the consequences of our decisions One must realize that the hardest part of forgiveness is forgiving yourself as Charlie discovers And lastly, we must each find our own niche in our own time, as Maya discovered, in order to allow our dreams to blossom and find our own way A great read from a talented new author, I cannot wait to see what this author comes up with next

    Windblown was a joy to read, richly descriptive with well drawn characters whose emotions were palpable The sensory details were very dominant, depicting landscape and color especially You could envision the settings for which the main character, Maya, would be feeling a range of rootedness or wanderlust The fishing details and boat mechanics add an additional layer of authenticity, bringing the setting sharply into focus Fern also uses description of aroma into the kitchen and family scenes, which adds warmth to the gathering of characters Windblown is anything but formulaic, with some surprises thrown in which added intrigue to the story Maya s resolution on her conflicts was well played out It was interesting to watch she and her father evolve as she grew up and continued the tradition of their storytelling tradition A very impressive debut novel from an author whose work is worth following.

    Lyrical writing makes this rather sweet tale of a young woman leaving home, growing through adventures, and finally finding happiness into a satisfying reading experience.
