More from Jennifer
Do you remember The Mod Squad? I loved that 1960s TV show and thought Peggy Lipton’s character, Julie Barnes, was the coolest.
A few years ago my sister sent me a photo. She’d just gotten her hair done at a Blow Bar for the first time. With thick, naturally wavy hair, she was shocked at the transformation and had to share. “Jenny, it’s not just straight, it’s Peggy Lipton straight!” I didn’t need to question the reference. I knew exactly what she meant even before checking out the photo link. Peggy Lipton’s hair was board straight. But more than that, she had that pale blonde look with dark brows and lashes. In color draping terms, she’d be classified as a Winter.
Peggy Lipton is who came to mind as I imagined Windy June Day, the youngest of the Day sisters. I also saw her as extremely artistic and brave, but she needed her own book to fully tell her story. In her sisters’ books, you get an idea of her personality but with Windy, now you get to know what went on in her head—her fears, her spiritual journey, her essence. You also get to better understand her fierce nature and amazing potential.
I really loved writing all three of these stories, but there was something personal about Windy’s. I also was an unwed mother and had to consider my daughter before I could think about any relationship. I also learned the freedom of forgiveness and turning my past, my future, my daughter all over to the One who could bring beauty from ashes.
Windy looks at a lot of things that we today have chosen to forget or have learned to look at differently. It’s funny to think that not that long ago, those things were the normal, everyday life. I hope Windy brings back fun memories or gets you to talk to someone who might remember those days.
I am very sad for this series to end. The three sisters have become friends and I feel like I have watched them grow up before my eyes. Our last visit is with Windy. She has been through a lot but I’m happy that her precious baby girl is now here. Windy’s life is changed forever as she takes a look at those innocent eyes and knows what unconditional love is.
Windy is trying so hard to do everything on her own, but at some point she needs to ask for help. It’s not easy raising a baby on your own but Windy seems determined that she can do it. I wonder what she is trying to prove? The author jars readers with an unexpected visitor. I was so shocked I gasped when the person was revealed. This is going to change so many lives. Oh I couldn’t wait to see when the fireworks would start in the family. Well done to the author for putting in a clever plot twist.
I love the time period of the 70s and the author does a great job of having the characters recreate the 70s vibe. I cracked up when Kris’s cousin comes to visit. He is dodging the draft and having a good time smoking pot. Kris is not happy with his cousin and sure gets mad when he starts to talk to Windy. Boy does Kris have it bad for her. The banter between him and Windy is entertaining and I enjoyed watching them pick at each other. If only the trouble his cousin has gotten into doesn’t come back on Kris, maybe be can concentrate on his future.
The conflict between sisters and other family members escalates as a painful past is discussed. I liked the raw emotions from each of the sisters as they shared their heart. Windy realizes she needs to soften her heart and asks God for help. Her honesty is painful but she knows she needs to forgive a certain person.
The story flows very well as Kris and Windy get to know each other better. There is still another surprise heading Windy’s way that will find several people questioning their future. The ups and downs in the story show how broken relationships can heal with God’s help. I am very sad to say goodbye to the girls but the author leaves us with a beautiful story filled with laughter, miracles and a family that has grown together with unconditional love.
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
