    One thought on “The Wind Comes Sweeping

    1. Mom2nine

      I read this book straight through in a day. Something for everyone, a bit of a mystery, relationships, adoption. Marcia Preston's writing style is so easy to read, without filth or overdone violence to try to keep the reader's interest. just a good story

      Marcia Preston's The Wind Comes Sweeping begins in the past with the suicide of a young woman in 1895 Oklahoma territory, resulting in the "Legend of Silk Mountain". I was a bit disappointed that the story didn't continue there, since I enjoy reading stories in historical settings, but soon settled into the shift to modern day Oklahoma and a gripping tale about a young woman who has returned to her home town after her rancher father's death. Marik Youngblood has the soul of an artist rather than [...]

      I met Marcia Preston when she was still editor at Byline where she did a great job. I followed her as she began to get published, even though mystery was not my kind of read. When I bumped into this used title, I brought it home as I had not seen her books for several years. She definitely improves all along as a writer. Ah, it might be a little slow to start but gradually picks up to make a great escape read. Of course, I love the regional settingOklahoma where I have had family. One thing I li [...]

      grrrrrr, this wasn't anything like the back says it is. it's not a mystery, it's not creepy, it's not really much of anything. and nothing really happens. bored bored bored all the way thru it. and the name choices really? they were a bit distracting. i mean, we're not reading about an old Native American tribe are we? Rainwater and Youngblood? c'mon

      Loneliness is a major theme running through this novel. Marik Youngblood gives her baby up for adoption. She returns to the family ranch after her father dies and leases some of the land to the power company to use as a wind turbine farm. Living in a remote area, adoption, autism, wife abuse all add to the loneliness theme and come together in this well written book.

    6. Adaire

      I am no good at giving books a rating. This was a 3.5 for me. I have enjoyed this author in the past, and I liked this book as well. Mystery and suspense mixed with longing and sorrow. There was little objectionalble content, some mildly disturbing descriptions of spousal abuse.

    7. Christine

      I enjoyed this well developed story. Strong lead character, interesting conflict, and plausible conclusion. I am anxious to read more by the same author.

    8. MaryAnne

      An interesting story about ranch life in the Midwest, with some drama and mystery added. Perhaps a little predictable, but it kept me turning pages to see what would happen. I enjoyed it.
