Product Description

Product Description

Dawn has her future planned out to the tiniest detail, and with only one summer left to spend in Hargrave Cove, all of her dreams are about to come true. She'll go to university in the city, finally tell Zeke she's in love with him, then become the best screenplay writer the world has ever seen. All she has to do is follow her plan.

But all that changes when a summer storm brings with it a girl who dances in the rain, turns Zeke's head, and has very strange ideas on what happiness should be. Her arrival brings with it a set of cataclysmic events that challenge everything Dawn ever believed and drive her further away from her dreams than she ever was before.

Thank god she still has Luke, the widowed manager of the local bar, to talk to. Otherwise she'd be completely alone.

When the storm comes again, one thing is sure, Dawn's life will be nothing like she originally planned...

Set in Australia against a picturesque coastal backdrop, In the Wind takes the reader on a journey of self-discovery and sexual-awakening, while reminding us that friends aren't always friends, and love is often where you least expect.

I love Lilliana's writing style and the way her characters develop as their story unfolds. I wasn't sure what to think of In The Wind when I started but by the third page I was hooked. This is much more than just a coming of age story. It is complex and emotional and Dawn's life is by no means simple. Her lifelong friendship with Zeke is tested and seems like a sure thing. Her honest acceptance of Shea as she came into the story sets her up to make bad decisions that seemed right at the time. She wanted human contact, more friends and really needed love and acceptance for herself. After all she is a young adult and experiencing the myriad of emotions that come with that is hard enough. However couple them with issues of abandonment, alcoholism, having to grow up too quickly and you see why living from day to day can sometimes feel just too hard.

Dawn does find her HEA but it's not what you expect. The twists and turns and emotional investment I made in each character are stand out for me. I loved this book. There were also many reminders of my own life growing up and I came from a loving family home. We all experience some kind of angst growing up, it's normal. It's a reminder that the world is not as simple as we would like it for young adults and that our decisions could affect us for the rest of our lives.

I would love to see some help line information to deal with the subjects presented. There were several very real matters that affect all of us and one point or other in our life. It's great to see these issues presented in a real way and not swept wrapped up and prettied. The issues that come through In the Wind are significant to a YA's well being. They should never be seen as taboo and we should encourage young adults to discuss these more openly.

Lilliana Anderson has done it again!

In The Wind is a beautiful, but at times gut wrenching and heart breaking story of growing up. Of love, of loss, of wanting to fit in. Of sexual awakenings, of finding out who you really are, and of who your friends really are.

Dawn Tucker - I could relate to her well. I had my friends, but didn't fit in with the "cool kids". Though looking back, that's not a bad thing at all!

Dawn and Zeke have been inseparable for years - until one day a fresh breath of air blows into Hargraves Cove, in the shape of Shea.

Right from the start, I didn't know whether I liked Shea or not. And as the story progressed, there were many a times when I wanted to push her off a cliff! Seriously, the more we got to know the girl, the more I disliked her!

And Zeke - he broke my heart. A thoughtless, selfish boy that I wanted to nut punch.

You may have noted that Ms Anderson has brought out the violence in me with this one!

Then there is Luke. Sweet, beautiful Luke. I just wanted to to keep him.

I don't want to give anything away with what happens in the story, but I do want to say that I feel that everyone got what they deserved.

In The Wind is Dawn's beautiful story, but have some tissues handy, as I am sure you will tear up at least once while reading!

What a read to start the year off.

I was ensnared by the character’s stories right from the get go. The conflict was dripping off the page, the tension caused my fingers to curl around my Kindle. I have been waiting for Lilliana to write something a little more edgey, a little more taboo and VOILA! My wish has been granted. I was laughing, crying, cursing and willing for things to work out. That’s the best part of reading, when you get so invested in the story that you have physical reactions.

Yes, there were times that I was predicting things from the little nuggets left behind but instead of that being an eye rolling experience which it can sometimes be, I was still blindsided a little by the way things eventuated.

I thought I had Dawn pegged right from the start. She’s in love with her best friend. She has her life mapped out, but that all changes the night Shea arrived along with a massive storm that wrecks havoc on her life. Shea is good for her for a short time. Encouraging her to look at things differently and trying new things. Trying out new things is short lived when these actions start to have negative flow on effects.

This is a young adult / new adult read but the scenarios are not dumbed down in any way which is a risk for these genres. Have to give props to Lilliana – this book, the storyline, the writing, and the characters has rocketed to my favourite book out of her collection of works.

Highly recommend this read and she’s restored my faith in YA / NA.

I was given a copy of this book by the author for free, receiving this for free has in no way impacted on my thoughts of the book.

ARC given in exchange for an honest review.

I have only read one other book by Lilliana and it made me bawl. This one did too. I found myself relating so much to Dawn and her feelings at 18. She really spoke to me. I kind of understood where she was coming from in regards to being old fashioned in her way of finding love. I loved Shea in the beginning but by the end I hated her and what she stood for. She seemed completely crazy at times! I hated Zeke from the beginning! He gave me a really bad vibe. He was almost selfish in the way he played on Dawn’s feelings and got off kind of easy at the end. Overall I loved this book, it tells the story of an 18 year old girl struggling with the emotions that being a teenager brings. There was love and lust with a tinge of sadness at times. I was crying at the end but happily. I didn’t see this book ending how it did and I certainly hoped for me. A truly wonderful read. 5 stars
