The Four Winds is an indelible portrait of America and the American dream.

The Four Winds is a novel about love and heroism and hope, set during the Great Depression, a time when the country was in crisis and at war with itself, when millions were out of work and even the land seemed to have turned against them in Texas, 1921. This story is a portrait of America and the American dream, as seen through the eyes of one woman whose courage and sacrifice define a generation.

The Great War is over, the bounty of the land is plentiful, and America is on the brink of a new and optimistic era. But for Elsa Wolcott, deemed too old to marry in a time when marriage is a woman’s only option, the future seems bleak. Until the night she meets Rafe Martinelli and decides to change the direction of her life. With her reputation in ruin, there is only one respectable choice: marriage to a man she barely knows.
