"I don't know who was most excited that morning when the three of us hoisted packs on our backs and started off down the trail. Just before we disappeared from view of our yard, I turned for one more wave. You woulda thought we were marching off to war or something. I even saw Aunt Lou blow her nose on her white hankie. They all looked glad and sad at the same time-happy we were doing something we really wanted to do, anxious that everything would go all right, and a bit sad we were growing up." On the brink of manhood, Josh was facing important questions about life, about love, about himself ..."I sure was having a time of it trying to sort out all these different ideas and feelings, maybe I should just go fishing!"

The Winds of Autumn is book #2 in the Seasons of the Heart series by Janette Oke. What makes this series different from the rest is that it is told through the eyes of a young boy, not a girl, like typical fashion for Janette Oke's stories. In this book you will read a continuation of Josh's struggles with getting his life together with God. The many questions he seeks answers for and explanations as to why things are the way they are. His family and friends all have in some way helped him grow in his spirituality. Some parts made me smile and towards the end I found myself in tears. This story is very relatable to a person's feelings and struggles for the truth. I highly recommend this book!

I've been re-reading Janette Oke's books this summer, and I'm enjoying this series. She does a good job of developing Josh's voice as he grows, and she touches on interesting family and community dynamics.

Merveilleux, livre (anglais) écrit par une canadienne, un peu évangéliste, d'un format léger, s'adressant aux jeunes ado.
Très bien écrit, facile à lire.

Je vais lire tous ses livres avec, je l'espère, autant d'avidité que celui-ci.
