Snowflakes in the Wind is a heartwarming story of triumph over adversity by Rita Bradshaw, author of the number one best-selling Dancing in the Moonlight.
It's Christmas Eve 1920 when nine-year-old Abby Kirby's family is ripped apart by a terrible tragedy. Leaving everything she's ever known, Abby takes her younger brother and runs away to the tough existence of the Border farming community.
Years pass. Abby becomes a beautiful young woman and falls in love, but her past haunts her, casting dark shadows. Furthermore, in the very place she's taken refuge is someone who wishes her harm.
With her heart broken, Abby decides to make a new life as a nurse. When the Second World War breaks out, she volunteers as a QA nurse and is sent overseas. However, life takes another unexpected and dangerous turn when she becomes a prisoner of the Japanese. It is then that Abby realises that whatever has gone before is nothing compared to what lies ahead....

Very interesting story I was particularly touched by the parts of the tale set in the Far East. Although I have read lots of books in this era I must admit I haven't read many that explore the role of the Japanese in the Second World War. Informative, shocking yet portrayed in the way that only Rita Bradshaw can, including factual information that is shocking yet compelling. A must listen!
The narration wonderful Janine Birkett is now definitely on my favourite lists, to me the way in which she performs accents, different ages was impeccable I found myself totally wrapped up in the story. First class, amazing 5'stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 you won't be disappointed 😊
First time I've read a book by this author must say it was a thrilling story first time I've used audio books as well was brilliant as the story was one not to put down so I was able to carry on with getting meal ready whilst still listening would recommend both to others
Yet another excellent story, brilliantly narrated by Jeanine Birkit who brings each and every character to life.
Can't wait for her next Book📚👏
It started off well, so I thought it was a story I could get into, but as the story enfolds I knew what was going to happen. At times I found it boring.
I think though the author has done her research but it was listening to another persons story.
There were no highs and lows and the accents were there sometime and not another.
Because I am elderly and have read so much over the years I felt I had heard the story many times. Maybe a younger person would enjoy it more.
love it and finished it over 3 evenings I
kept sneaking off for another listen,
great narrator too which makes all the difference.
I loved this book from start to finish. Will certainly be reading more from this author
