I have heard many stories over the years about how the belief in the Supernatural is second nature to most southern African Americans. Reading this book made me question my belief in the existence of the Supernatural.
The Winds of Destiny written by noted author Willie Tee is a thought provoking and engaging book based on past true-life events in the author's family. The story setting is on a farm in North Carolina near Wilmington in the 1950s. Uncle Leon, the author's favorite uncle, was reared on this farm. The story opens during the tragic death of Uncle Leon in a trucking accident. There is a deep dark family secret that if revealed could affect the entire family. Coupled with beliefs in voodoo and witchcraft this novel takes suspense to a new level.
Uncle Leon was a man who loved life and encouraged everyone around him to live life to the fullest. Pa Daddy and Granny were Leon's parents. Granny was a strong black woman who helped to hold her family together. Pa Daddy was a strict and rigid man who believed that everyone should work.
Tee's true family story is one of great suspense. The scenes where voodoo was practiced were so descriptive. I cried and laughed while reading this book. I loved Granny for her strength and wisdom. Uncle Leon was my favorite character. This is one story you will always remember. Mr. Tee, I cannot wait to read the sequel.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in reading true-life stories filled with suspense. Also visit the author's website for further information on this book and the sequel.

Mr. Willie Tee certainly knows how to weave a story. I was literally drawn inside this book through every phase of the story. I visually saw the uncle's truck go over the hillside and I cried as I imagined his fate and that of the driver of the truck. I sat at the funeral and grieved right along with the author and his family, and I feel that I have truly met his entire family. Granny (another character in the book) was absolutely delightful and I admired her strength and wisdom. There is a secret that the author shares about his family, but you must read the book to find out. When I finished this book, the characters literally haunted me for days. Thank you so much for writing this book Mr. Tee, and sharing it with the public.

My mom and I had the pleasure of meeting Willie Tee at his book signing in Chesterfield, VA. His description of the book intrigued us, especially the mention of tobacco fields and farming...something my parents can definitely relate to.
I read "The Winds of Destiny" while on a much needed vacation last week. It was very interesting and heart warming. The author does a great job introducing readers to his family members from the past and the present. I still think about the author's comical and touching stories and his positive messages throughout the book. I was also very impressed with his strong family values.
Thanks for such an interesting and uplifting read.
