Book Review: Heed the Wind by Wendy Dolch

She lost her entire family, he destroyed his. Now the battle for redemption begins.

What vagrant violinist Staletta Burns wants most is to find her missing brothers, but the streets of London are cold and unforgiving and the moon hanging over the dark waters of the Thames can't tell her where they are. So, she trades her last few coins for a pain-numbing drink…and wakes up to find herself in jail.

Rescued by the sole witness to her unjust imprisonment, Daniel May attempts to help her turn her life around by getting her a job at Bobs & Co Manufactory. But she would rather play her violin for the patrons of London's mangiest pubs, than work at the factory where Smitherton Bobs reigns god-like over his workers. And Bobs is a crow from her past, a man that will kill her, the white chimp that destroyed his family.

This book was not what I expected, in a good way. It pulled me in from the start and I wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen to Staletta, then what would happen to Daniel, and then what would happen to Bobs. There were many tough subjects tackled and the rough parts of life were written in a truthful yet tactful way.  A great faith-filled story, with hard life lessons and some difficult subjects written in a redemptive and strong way. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
