Jack is not the sort of man to walk away if there is a chance help. Ms. Sikes creates a man who cares for others. He is the hero of this story. Savannah has given up. The following excerpt, early on in this story, made me like this man and root for this woman. Their friendship begins with kindness.
“… Jack was pleased to see her eating the soup. Maybe she had every reason to want to die, but he wouldn’t be the one to help that along. He was done with having a hand in people dying. He remembered the locket in his pocket and fished it out. “Ms. Logan, I found this in the rubble and thought it might mean something to you.” When she touched the locket, she gasped. “Oh, thank you! My Henry gave it to me the day he asked me to marry him.” She opened it. “And look. The picture didn’t burn.” …”
Author Jan Sikes is a delightful storyteller. She uses her knowledge and love of Texas as a backdrop in many of her stories. I recommend this for fans of westerns who want to see into the real lives and hardships of people in that era. Odd however, that stories from that era are so relevant today.
This was a great read. The author did a wonderful job of letting me immediately fall into the characters' lives and connect with each of them. As much as I wanted more in the ending, I also realize things weren't that way during those times. She stayed true to the era, but left enough of a hint to let my imagination run wild with the wind. ;-)
Savannah sees no reason to live, having lost her husband and two children. But Jack takes her into the nearby town of Albany where he finds lodging and medical care for her.
Both Jack and Savannah are haunted by the past, but can they find redemption in the Brazos Wind?
I thoroughly enjoyed this short read. Set in Texas, I’m familiar with the places in this book. I would love to see more of these characters in a longer book and the author left it open for the possibility.
If you’re looking for a well-written and enjoyable short read, I highly recommend Brazos Wind.
Jack McClean is tired of this life of killing and running from being killed. He has only as companion his horse. He wanders and stumbles upon a deserted town and Savannah, a woman at the point of death after losing everything, husband, and children. Here, Jack shows his humanity and helps bring Savannah back to life.
From this point, life changes for both Jack and Savannah. What could these changes bring? This is a cute little story, well written with not too much drama. A little laid back but interesting.
There are no bad guys in this short story beyond chance and bad luck. Like life for many of us. The story is expertly crafted with well-rounded believable characters. It leaves off with a hint of more to come and I hope the author follows through. A lovely read.
