A New Book: Kick the Wind
Kick the Wind is a story about regular people who are called upon to do extraordinary things during a remarkable era in American history.
It’s two years after the Civil War in a small Mid-Western town. Two girls, one deaf and motherless, the other the first African American to break the color line in the local all-white grammar school, must forge a friendship strong enough to save their lives when racial violence erupts.
