Review: A FICKLE WIND by ELIZABETH BOURNE



Review: A FICKLE WIND by ELIZABETH BOURNE

A finely-wrought, incredibly detailed, novel of a life lived in three nations, two continents, by a woman whose consistent determination is to stand strong through the storms and adversities of circumstances and to persevere throughout. Ms. Bourne was a small child during the tribulations of World War II, in a constrained environment which affirmed the value of the famous "British stiff upper lip," so that early on she learned to minimize tears and conceal suffering. I think this "training" as well as her determination to focus on the positive carried her through decades of a frequently "topsy-turvy" existence, and planted her on a shore of emotional security and self-possession.
