About the book
What is love at first sight? What do we mean by destiny? Are things sometimes just meant to be? And are there messages within our dreams?
Told through a lens of three snapshots in time that are connected by a ‘soul’s journey to reunite with past loves, K Lewis Adair’s astounding fiction debut, The Windmill, focuses on three people against a stunning historical backdrop. Both spiritual and historical, it is ideal for readers looking for an emotionally immersive read.
Virginia ‘Ginny’ Lewis Faulkner thinks her luck is in when she inherits a previously unknown property. Little does she know all that awaits her as she begins a genealogical investigation to discover more about her Great Aunt Florence Stanley, whom she and other family members have little knowledge of following her disappearance in war-torn Holland in 1940. But there are skeletons within the cupboard that were hidden for a reason…
One of the recent reviews for the book
Drew A real page turner…wants you wanting more Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 6 February 2021
Well, that was a different read…and for good reasons. Was a real page turner and has left me thinking about what happens to our love when we pass, what might draw us to our partners and how we may sacrifice everything for love. This book has a lot of characters to engage with that at first seem distant from each other. However, the concept of connections pervades and the main character, Ginny, starts a voyage of discovery to link these connections and discover why she might have been left a house. What she finds is so much more…with more to come I suspect. It’s about friends, loves and tragedy. Set in three parts, the changes in time are marked on the chapter titles to help you keep on track with the fast-paced movements. I was interested in the use of historical information to drive the plot and engage with the characters. And I even found out some new things.
All in all, I’d recommend this book to anyone that wants to delve into a story and the subjects of who we meet, befriend and fall in love with during our lives. The Windmill is not a linear read in any sense, this makes it interesting and different for that. Twists and turns and clues, easy to miss if you skim through, help us the reader and the characters discover some of the answers.
A well-constructed book of substance, some moving sections with depth that will make you think and want more after you’ve finished.
