Publisher's Summary

From the Newbery Award-winning author of Across Five Aprils and Up a Road Slowly comes a tale of a brave young man’s struggle to find his own strength during the Great Depression.

In 1932, Americans’ dreams were simple: a job, food to eat, a place to sleep, and shoes without holes. But for millions of people these simple needs were nothing more than dreams. When he was just 15 years old, Josh had to make his own way through a country of angry and frightened people. This is the story of his struggle to find a life for himself during those turbulent times.

    Story
    "good writing, horrible narration"

    I will not listen to anything else from thise narrarator. The blandness of his voice was like a blanket over the storyline. His female characters were so obnoxious, I was on the verge of forwarding over it. Only my respect for authors and stories stopped me. It also seems the audible is much longer than it should be for the size novel that it is; maybe its the tone, maybe its the pace

    "Excellent!"

    Story
    "No Promises in the Wind"
    If you could sum up No Promises in the Wind in three words, what would they be?

    Moving, realistic, heart-felt


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way Josh matured and came to realize that if you're human, you will make mistakes.


    Which character – as performed by Charlie Thurston – was your favorite?

    Howie - he seemed to catch Howie's personality in the little bit of time he had


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Howie's death was a shocker even though it was foreshadowed


    Any additional comments?

    I've done this as a novel study multiple times. This is the first time I've had the audible book. It really adds a lot to the study.
