A White Wind Blew

A White Wind Blew
James Markert

Dr. Pike is a widower, a doctor at Waverly Hills, and an aspiring priest. He's also a musician who believes in the power of music to heal the soul. And if the soul is at peace, the body can begin healing as well. So he tries to fulfill every request for music he receives despite the appalling conditions and resistance he receives from his boss. Death, racism, love, and the effects of war are only a few of the touchy subjects contained in this book. 

The story flows along, like a slow moving stream. It contains some insightful views into a world most of us will never experience. Its redemptive story is refreshing and depressing at the same time. I can't say that I enjoyed this story as much as I thought I would. But based on the subject and writing style, I can definitely see this book becoming a best seller. It just isn't my style and took my quite some time to get through it. But if thought provoking and reflective writing is your thing, then definitely read this book.

I received this book free of charge from Sourcebooks in exchange for my honest review.
