De la autora de El Ruiseñor, una épica y emocionante novela de amor, heroísmo y esperanza.

Texas, 1921. La Gran Guerra ha terminado y Estados Unidos parece entrar  en una nueva era de optimismo y abundancia. Pero para Elsa, considerada  demasiado mayor para casarse en una época en la que el matrimonio es la  única opción de una mujer, el futuro es incierto. Hasta la noche en que  conoce a Rafe Martinelli y decide cambiar la dirección de su vida. Con  su reputación arruinada, solo le queda una opción respetable: casarse con un hombre al que apenas conoce.

En 1934, el mundo ha cambiado. Millones de personas se han quedado sin trabajo y los granjeros luchan por conservar sus tierras. Las cosechas  se pierden por la sequía, las fuentes de agua se secan y el polvo  amenaza con enterrarlo todo. Cada día en la granja de los Martinelli es  una desesperada batalla por la supervivencia. Y, como tantos otros, Elsa  se ve obligada a tomar una agónica decisión: luchar por la tierra que  ama o marchar al Oeste, a California, en busca de una vida mejor para su familia.

English Description:

“My land tells its story if you listen. The story of our family.”

Texas, 1921. A time of abundance. 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.

By 1934, the world has changed; millions are out of work and drought has devastated the Great Plains. Farmers are fighting to keep their land and their livelihoods as crops fail and water dries up and the earth cracks open. Dust storms roll relentlessly across the plains. Everything on the Martinelli farm is dying, including Elsa’s tenuous marriage; each day is a desperate battle against nature and a fight to keep her children alive.

In this uncertain and perilous time, Elsa―like so many of her neighbors―must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or leave it behind and go west, to California, in search of a better life for her family.

The Four Winds is a rich, sweeping novel that stunningly brings to life the Great Depression and the people who lived through it―the harsh realities that divided us as a nation and the enduring battle between the haves and the have-nots. A testament to hope, resilience, and the strength of the human spirit to survive adversity, The Four Winds is an indelible portrait of America and the American dream, as seen through the eyes of one indomitable woman whose courage and sacrifice will come to define a generation.
