Publisher's Summary

Looking back can seem daunting. Moving forward can seem impossible.

With an old friend back in her life, will Betty hold on to yesterday even if it tears her apart?

The past can't be rewritten, but the world can be changed - especially if Betty and her family in Edenville have anything to do with it.

Amazing story

This story fills in so many gaps from Betty's Book - the first in the series. Gaps you didn't know you were missing. The narration is done very well. The history in these books just grabs you and keeps you there.

Great Book!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book; this is the second book in the Edenville series written by Danielle Stewart and narrated by Robin Rowan. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. The narrator Robin Rowan did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end. If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy of this book. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Great series

As my husband tour this great country, we listened to the first 2 books in the series. At our age we can relate and sympathize. All efforts to enlighten readers to that time are appreciated. I pray history never repeats itself.

Love this story

What made the experience of listening to Kiss in the Wind the most enjoyable?

I love the characters in this story. This series is full of amazing characters and an emotionally charged story line that is extremely touching and a pleasure to experience.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite Character is a tough question as it is a tie between Simpson who is an old soul who has been through so much and tries so hard to do what is right, and Franky (His best friends granddaughter) who has such a unique point of view and a very special relationship with Simpson.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene in the book has to be when the town unanimously stands behind Simpson and shows their support after he reveals his secret identity. What a humbling feeling that must be and the book and narration really brought out how special that was for him.

just as life changing as the first book....

heart wrenching series...if more people read this kind of book, maybe they could put it into today's context and troubles of our generation....the narration on all these books goes beyond exceptional! Couldnt imagine any other voice doing this with such an amazing way of bringing all these characters to life and absorb you so far into the story that you feel you are there yourself ! Amazing and well done to both author and narrator.
