From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale and The Great Alone comes an epic novel of love, heroism, and hope, set against the backdrop of one of America’s darkest eras—the Great Depression. The Four Winds is an indelible portrait of the American Dream, as seen through the eyes of one indomitable woman whose courage and sacrifice will come to define a generation. In 1934 Texas, Elsa Martinelli—like so many of her neighbors—must make an agonizing choice: fight for the land she loves or go west, to California, in search of a better life. She faces an uncertain and dangerous time, when farmers are fighting to keep their land and their livelihoods as the crops are failing, the water is drying up, and dust threatens to bury them all.  

“[T]his riveting story of love, courage, and sacrifice . . . combines gritty realism with emotionally rich characters and lyrical prose that rings brightly and true from the first line.” –Publishers Weekly (STARRED REVIEW) 

Kristin Hannah, a former lawyer turned writer, is the author of more than 20 novels, including the international blockbuster The Nightingale, which sold more than 2 million copies and was voted a best book of the year by Amazon, Buzzfeed, and the Wall Street Journal.  It is also currently being adapted for film by TriStar Pictures. Hannah’s bestselling book Firefly Lane will be released as a 10-episode series on Netflix starring Katherine Heigl in 2021.
