He holds the key to her heart, but will he return?
What reviewers are saying about Destiny’s Whirlwind…
“I found myself caught up in the McConnell’s life and saying to the book no don’t do it, on more than one occasion. … Catherine’s characters are real-life, and the story is a hard won maybe happily-ever-after ending. I haven’t read a family saga in a long time. Now that I’ve read Destiny’s Whirlwind I need to follow the family to the conclusion. Beautifully-written.” ~ Cindy Ervin Huff, author and speaker
“Catherine Brakefield has woven an interesting tale of love gained and love lost, life and death, war and peace throughout a tumultuous time of American history. Her characters draw the reader deep into the story as they journey through the stresses and joys of their lives.” ~ Marcia Mitchell, author and minister
