Author provided Winds of Skilak for review I was totally captivated from the moment that I started reading Winds of Skilak It was such a surprise to me that I became so engrossed in the book so uickly as I usually don't really enjoy the books with families moving to lands that are unexplored or unsettled This is the book that changed my mind I felt as if I was right there with Bonnie and Sam Ward as the came together and then followed Sam's dream Bonnie didn't seem to even have a second thought about leaving her family and the convenient and comfortable life she was leaving behind her in Ohio I loaned my copy to several ladies in my church and they were ALL talking about Winds of Skilak anytime we were in a group together I thought I would NEVER get it back so I could read it too I actually read for 14 hours straight because I just could NOT put it down I haven't done that since I was a teenager reading books with a flashlight under my blankets so Mom wouldn't catch me and fuss about staying up all night I felt the cold cold waters of Skilak Lake and I felt the sore muscles as the two of them worked so hard to make a home in this barren and unsettled land The writing is so descriptive that it just swept me away and into the wilderness with them Bonnie seemed to always be stirring up wildlife like a grizzly bear or moose any time she went outside their little primitive cabin Life in any wilderness is not for the faint of heartNothing really seemed to test their love uite like the the dismal times when accidents plagued them From the time that Sam injured his back until the early morning hours where they heard shots echo from their neighbors farm Their first thought went to their goat herd of four little goats I cried right along with Bonnie as she said goodbye to her dear sweet Esther Bester The loss of any food source can be dangerous for any human that lived in the area From the garden plots of berries to the meat from the animals that seemed like a member of their family life can be very hard not only on the muscles and body but to the heart as wellI would gladly recommend this book to anyone who likes a really good book that will captivate you from the beginning until the very last page The ladies of my church group just all LOVED this book It's always refreshing to read a book that doesn't contain vulgar or profane language This book is one that I can see my daughter and my grandchildren enjoying reading Winds of Skilak as well I plan to share it next with my sixteen year old grandson when I see him in a couple of months If you want a really good and easy book to read then this is the one for your reading pleasure sue summary ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Bonnie Rose Ward
