    One thought on “Windborne”

    1. Heartfelt and at times quietly moving, this memoir-like work of fiction uses the tapestry of one family in the Flint Hills of Kansas and their struggles, triumphs and tragedies over decades to paint a portrait of a country as it grows and changes with the world around it. In her first effort, Wanda DeHaven Pyle uses a fast-flowing narrative more than dialog to cover much ground within only a few chapters or pages, yet there exists an intimacy, as though we the reader are being offered a view fro [...]

    2. Air borne.I cannot praise this enough. Beautifully written.Set in Kansas, from 1910-1985, with a historical background, Windborne beautifully sketches tales of love, loss and awakening of three women. A panoramic glance at a nation and of the time when you did not expect much. Virginia left her dreams, her hopes of teaching, becoming independent and went to marry, create a family of her own. Another women follow her lead. But till when? There must be a stop to the pain and abuses they are facing [...]

    3. I won this book from some time ago. I really liked it since it is about the time of my parents lives 1910 - 1985. It was also about life in Kansas which is where my parents were, then they moved to Wyoming to farm. So a lot of this book, I could relate to. It is mainly about a woman who gave up her dream of teaching to marry and raise a family and the generation of women who followed her. These women had to win over heartache, poverty and abuse before they found the courage to be themselves. Th [...]

    4. I really enjoy books that are set against the backdrop of authentic history, portraying believable characters, exposing their strengths and weaknesses in very realistic ways. Wind Borne is rich with human drama--Love does not overcome all, sometimes it damages people more than they know: hardships that eventually tear families apart after many years of struggle, mental depression and alcoholism in men because of feelings of failure and guilt, the effects of war on young soldiers who joined the N [...]

    5. I couldn't make it past the first chapter. I was intrigued by this book since I live in the Flint Hills. While there were tons of opportunities for conflict, they weren't taken as the main character did not react to the hardships presented. At times, the author gave long winded history lessons of the area instead of immersing us into the landscape. A pet peeve of mine is when authors head hop and we had that for a few paragraphs this first chapter in the fathers point of view. Also, by the end o [...]

    6. It is a testament to the strength of this story that I finished it in spite of its excessive use of exclamation points, and numerous typographical errors. I loved the weaving of history into this tale; I loved the generational spans, and the storytelling was well done. I sure wish it had gone through one more edit before hitting the shelves.
