Enemies and lovers follow the adventures through life threatening and rewarding days as this gently written tale tells the story of people who have ties in both lands. Blood runs thicker than water and family will stick together.
Some characters are wicked through and through, while others turn from wickedness to be the links that save the day for the righteous.
Surrender the Wind gives readers a glimpse of the 'people' involved in the beginning of the United States. There are no political scenarios discussing the birthing of the government. Instead, we see ordinary people who love their work and land. As a patriot, Seth Braxton has to overcome the connected prejudices toward the perceived enemy of family in England and deal with the prejudices which are aimed right back toward him. He finds firm, lasting friendships, matures to heal family rifts and marries the only woman who ever captured his heart.
Rita Gerlach weaves a tale of adventure and love with the accompanying risks and dangers through a 'clean path'. I enjoyed a swiftly moving story that carries no profanity, personal faith without specific preaching, tenderness with no steamy, anatomically correct sex scenes. Yet, the story manages not to be boring! A talented novelist.
I purchased this novel for my Kindle Fire and am proud to have you find it on my reading list. I plan to read more of Rita Gerlach's writing.
Author Rita Gerlach has a way with words that make you see the story in your head and as if you are living the book yourself. I started and did not want to put it down.
The characters were very fascinating. The plot or story line stayed true to the synopsis and left me wanting more.
I love the cover.
I would read this book again in a heart beat.
So there you have it for my thoughts on this book and author.
And for those reasons, I am giving this book and author my Breath of Life Rating:
FIVE CLOCK RATING!!
Disclosure: I did received the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and review. Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
Another thing I appreciated is that it was a Christian Inspirational but Rita's book didn't shove religion at me. Their faith was shown exactly where I would have prayed if I were in that situation. Because of her, I may just give more of this genre a second chance.
