K. T. Dixon has revived the old-fashion art of storytelling and put it in print for all to enjoy. His homespun Southern style incorporates a hint of modern flair and creates a literary fusion that is a pleasure to read.
Seminole Wind is a lighthearted, romantic adventure set in the wild outback of the Florida Everglades. The tale is filled with emotionally charged action, intrigue, and laughter that will entertain both male and female readers alike.
Billy Brightpath is the first Seminole Indian in history to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. When he returns to his Reservation home in South Florida, Brightpath finds the family ranch under the control of a sugar industry tycoon and he must fight to regain what is rightfully his. When a long lost love reenters his life, Brightpath is torn between being with the woman he adores and killing the man he hates. Though Brightpath must fight the battle of his life to protect his land, the war in the field pales in comparison to the one that he must fight within his own heart.
What members say
Storytelling at its finest.
If you could sum up Seminole Wind in three words, what would they be?
Super fun read.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Other than Brightpath, I loved the character of Maxwell Jodico (hopeful spelling). We all know characters like this exist in real life and K.T. really does a superior job of making me hate him and everything he stands for.
Which character – as performed by Larry Oliver – was your favorite?
Honestly, I'm from California, so it takes a few minutes to get fully accustomed to Larry's cadence. But as with any good story, once you sit back and open your mind it all flows great. This is a Southern story told in a southern style. Once I got going I found Larry's voice to be very palatable. Not to beat a dead horse, but I really liked the Jodico Character.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The thought of a person coming home to an expectation of things the way they were and finding the new reality that invariably awaits is heavy stuff. It's not easy to make me cry, but it made me feel sadness for the character as we've all been there personally at some point. On the laugh front, the character of Austin Decker is a "laugh out loud" character. He's sleazy, slimy and totally moral-less; which of course makes him funny as heck.
Any additional comments?
I love books like this. I love Regional Writers that can bring you into a small corner of their world and let you take a geographic and informative tour of a place most of us have never been; all the while entertaining you with a great story.
