Kathleen Janz-Andersonabout this book: Don't we all love words, beautiful words that swirl around on our tongues before sending ripples of excitement through every part of our being. September Wind is not merely about abuse or a young girl's journey to find love and peace, and a hope of atonement for her sins and those of others. This is a story of loss, abuse, young love, and the beginnings of a grownup love. It's a story of will, forgiveness, and a drive that will inspire and make us fall in love with Emily Rezell.
The book begins with a Prologue, Emily's birth, and the death of her mother. In the first chapter we get to know Emily when she is nine. Her beloved grandmother has died, and Emily lives on her grandfather's farm with him, two uncles & a man so evil she wonders why no one can see this but her. The men work hard, although they have more love for alcohol than for this young girl. Her aunt lives nearby but is not much help, although before she dies she gives Emily a chance to find a new life.
When Emily turns eighteen the day comes when she's had enough and is forced to protect herself. She's on the run now deluding the exiting trip she planned to find an old friend of her mother's who she believes will help her discover who she really is. She barely escapes on a bus to Chicago where she catches a train to San Francisco. Once she arrives at her destination, it doesn't take long for her to find the exact people she should be running from. She finds another side of herself in a Brothel, and then as a nanny we come to know her true spirit as she searches for that old friend of her mother's, Samuel Dimsmoore.
