Publisher's Summary

De Lint's first adult fantasy novel in eight years weaves a rich tapestry of story with classic CdL elegance.

Young Thomas Corn Eyes sees into the otherworld, but all he wants to do is get off the rez. Steve Cole escaped from his rock star life to disappear into the desert and mountains. Fifteen-year-old barrio kid Sadie Higgins has been discarded once too often. Blogger Leah Hardin needs to leave Newford, come to terms with the loss of her best friend, and actually engage with her life. When these lives collide in the Hierro Maderas Mountains, they must struggle to escape their messy pasts and find a way to carve a future for themselves. They don't just have to learn how to survive. They have to learn how to fly.

    "Heartwarming contemporary fantasy "

    This has been one of those rare stories that will probably stay with me for days and that I'll come back to again and again. It may sound corny but it not only touched my heart but also my spirit. Thank you Charles De Lindt. I'm off to check out more of your wr

    Story
    "Beautiful and Heartening"

    Some book you read to stretch your intellect, and some you read to expand your heart. This novel falls in the latter category. The Wind in His Heart is a balm to the soul. This is a story about kindness, about freedom, and about the mysterious forces that move the world. The characters are well-drawn and so real you'd like to buy them a cup of coffee, or maybe sit around a campfire and listen while they play some tunes in the desert night. The plot moves along at a gentle, easy pace, neither too fast nor too slow, with plenty of action to keep the pages moving.The narration is spot-on; Tom Stechschulte's voice has gravel and grit, so fitting for a story that takes place mostly in a desert, and he voices the different accents of the characters well. Altogether, a beautiful story that I can't recommend highly enough.

    "Not Really Newford"

    Pretty good read, but not the Newford book I expected. Takes place in the desert southwest, with only a few familiar characters. Mildly disappointed. But, good enough to listen to again, and it may grow on me when it's not clouded by false expectations.

    Story
    "An Enjoyable Yarn. Compelling Characters."

    de Lint is a master. The characters have depth. The story's atmosphere is rich and descriptive and obviously well-informed through either personal experience or research of some of the nuances of multicultural life in the desert Southwest. Didn't want the story to end.

    Story
    "Finally a new de Lint!! Wonderful! I"

    I have been reading Charles de Lint for more than 30 years. I recommend him to everyone. The lessons are woven deep into the thread of the stories. Hearing them instead of reading lets my eyes wander and look for the magic. A great story teller.
