9781433677960: Chasing the Wind (Large Print Trade Paper): A Novel

At 8:47 A.M. on Wednesday, October 12, 1977, new-to-town businessman Bingham Murdock flew his small plane into New Orleans, banking it in such a way that a ray of sunshine shot through the city at light speed.

Amalise Catoir saw the flash from her sixteenth floor law office window. Finally feeling alive after the death of her abusive husband, she imagined seeing the plane was a fate for her eyes only; a special connection between the unknown giver and she, the recipient of light.

But someone else saw it, a six-year-old Cambodian refugee in foster care for whom a sudden burst of brightness reminds him of artillery fire.

Destined to cross paths with the man and the child, Amalise doesn’t yet know the deeper spiritual lesson she will learn: that we are responsible not only for the things we do, but also for the things that we don’t.

About the Author:

Pamela Binnings Ewen practiced law for twenty-five years before she followed in the authorial footsteps of relatives such as James Lee Burke (The Glass Rainbow) and Andre Dubus III (The House of Sand and Fog). Chasing the Wind is her fourth novel. Ewen lives in Louisiana.

Review:

 "Evocative language and amazing storytelling elevate Ewen's novel far above similar books. The way the different plot points come together in the end will cause both tears and sighs of joy. True events from the 1970s blend seamlessly together with imaginative fiction. This is one not to be missed!"
