I like this book in general. Human beings are weakened in facing to natural disasters as reflected in this novel. Yet, people continuously change habitats to adapt themselves to the environment. In this book, the successful portrays of characters and sudden change on their livings lay the foundation of how the story develops. I recommend this book because of the strength and endurance of main characters.

I was so excited to read A Home for the Windswept. I have been obsessed with weather, especially tornadoes, for as long as I can remember. Since I live in Texas, and we get severe weather all the time, it's hard not to have at least some form of respect for nature. The beginning held promise, with me immediately admiring and understanding the plight that Darcy and her family finds themselves in. I too was a young mother that struggled in the beginning, so the connection and empathy was there. Darcy narrates throughout and her thoughts are mirrored by thoughts from my own past, and for the first half of the novel I couldn't put it down...that is until the language got to be too much for me.

Don't get me wrong, I normally do not have a problem with bad language, and can normally block it out, but when the Lord's name is taken in vain over and over, I just cannot handle it. I tried to continue on, thoroughly intrigued with where the plot was taking the story, but it got to a point where I couldn't take the language anymore, making the rest of the book practically unreadable. I gave two stars because if the language would've been toned down I could've seen enjoying this book, and truly hate that I couldn't finish it, though I did skip to the end and read the last few chapters just so I would see where the family ends up. The ending was good, making it even harder for me not to go back and read the last half, but it is what it is.

If language doesn't bother you, then by all means read A Home for the Windswept. I really think you'll like this unique, yet relatable story. The authors writing is pretty great, pulling you into the story quickly, and giving a clear picture of a struggling family that is fighting to find a way out of their dire situation. If you're sensitive to profanity, I would sadly say to give this novel a pass. It's just a little too much.

*I have voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from Black Rose Writing through LibraryThing Early Reviews. All views and opinions expressed are completely honest, and my own.
