review 1: Although I found some of this book interesting it was very depressing. Life in a sanatorium, dealing with the TB epidemic was really tragic. Some of the treatments seem almost worse than the cure-purposely collapsing lungs and taking out multiple ribs?...really? I am not sure how anyone survived Throw in some KKK and a widowed Dr. who thinks he should become a priest but is in love with one of the nurses and you have this book. This is not a typical read for me, but was a free book on my nook (so glad I didn't pay for it).
review 2: Short-Take: James Markert has written a beautiful story that encapsulates the human spirit. "A White Wind Blew" is a story set in a time when the world had been ravaged by war (WWI) and disease (tuberculosis). With so much dark
... moreness in the world, this story reveals that little spark of light, the human spirit, that somehow continues to emerge, lead, and guide those who nurture that light inside. Because I am passionate about music and the written word, the best part of this story, for me, is that the author uses music as his kindling to ignite healing, illuminating that tiny spark of hope that resides inside each one of us and allows us to persevere. less

enjoyed this book. I had no idea TB was this bad. Reminds me of the 80's when AIDS was found.
This was a pretty good book. A bit predictable, but overall enjoyable.
I loved this book. Really great read.
