This book's distinctive setting distinguishes it from the run-of-the-mill, and its landscape, beaten down by the sun and the wind, mirrors the storm at the heart of the main characters' romance. Author Samantha Mabry keeps the stakes in All the Wind in the World at the level of life and death. And her characters are as vivid and as gritty as the terrain they traverse. Her prose is rich and evocative without seeming overwritten. The plot will keep readers guessing, and some may find the ending unsettling. This stand-alone slice of magical realism is likely to enchant a wide range of readers.
