    a good beach read

    Twenty one year old Joanne is fiercly independent and wary of trusting others. She's become this way due to events in her past that allowed her to see the true colors of those she was closest to--her parents. As a teenager, Joanne thought she was in love, and found herself pregnant. Rather than offer her any support at all, her parents chose to send her away to avoid the emberassment of having a pregnant teenage daughter. Now Joanne and her four year old son Joey are getting by. Joanne convinces herself that she between her job and her son, she leads a full life. What she doesn't realize is that part of her is missing. Until she meets Roy. From here the story takes on the stereotypical boy meets girl theme. The story itself is well written and filled with strong characters. Both Joanne and Roy are stubbornly strong, and both have been hurt in the past and are terrified of letting anyone get close enough to ever hurt them again. As I was reading the book, I couldn't help but think it reminded me of a Nicholas Sparks book...nothing earth shattering, but at the same time, you can't put it down, because you desperately want these characters to figure things out and be happy. The back of the book states that Taylor creates strong women characters, and I definitely can't argue that. The character of Joanne is strong and fiercly independent. While you can't help but respect her for her triumphs and solitary successes, you also can't help but feel sympathy for her for all she's missing out on through the majority of the book. If you're looking for a simple, sweet and touching story, I've found it for you. It's a pretty quick read, and moves along steadily, never really allowing the reader to get bored. This is one of my recommended beach reads..

    Trust in the Wind . . . and this Author for a great read!

    Chosing single motherhood in her teens, Joanne lost everything, including the support and love of her family. Pregnant and alone, she makes the decision to go forth with her life. She trust no one and firmly locks the door of her heart. She vowed to become independent, trust only the wind, and to never let love break down the barriers surrounding her heart. That is . . . until she met Roy. I finished reading Trust in the Wind and realized that once again Ms Taylor convinced me to 'latched on' to her characters with a vengance. I can honestly say that if harm had befallen certain ones, she would not have been forgiven. Strong characters, suspenseful, and a love scene that massaged my heart. This was one time where the romance was beautiful a gift . . . in a sense. As I read parts of it, I found myself saying, 'I want that kind of love!' Every scene, every exciting movement, and yes, even the kisses exchanged, were given to me in such a way that an artist could not have painted a better picture for my senses to enjoy. Ms. Taylor, we have a winner.
