Melanie Dobson has written another amazing novel that is filled with historical details and wonderful characters. "Catching the Wind" tells the story of a few different individuals during different time periods. Daniel and Brigitte escaped from the Gestapo in Germany, but were separated when they arrived in England. Daniel has spent the last 70 years trying to find Brigette and he seeks help from Quenby, a journalist. Quenby and Lucas, Daniel's lawyer, team up to search for Brigette, as she is fascinated by her story.
Melanie does an incredible job with this story as she ties together individuals from different decades and weaves together the time periods and their stories. World War II is a time period that I have read a lot about and one that I enjoy, and Melanie brings a unique spin to things so it is all a brand-new story to read. I cannot imagine the horror that Daniel and Brigitte saw and suffered through. It was easy to get lost in their lives and in the story. I loved Quenby's role in the story as well and she was an easy character to like. This is a must-read book for historical fiction fans and one with a gorgeous cover as well!
