  • Historical Fiction Done Right

    While not typically in genres that I read – The Wind was an awesome tale of Revolutionary War-time West-Florida and is really a story about people. In the introductory chapters, we learn that there is a storm and that Gabriel lands on a beach in an attempt to shelter from the storm. In the morning a woman finds and greets him while looking for her lost husband. She heals Gabriel out with the help of her father. Once we get into the story we find out that there is much more going on (and really anything more would be a spoiler!) Hedbor’s storytelling is just that – it’s reminiscent of the older stories that you hear from “way back when”. Obviously, he’s telling a story about a long time ago but you get that authentic and honest feeling when you listen to it. He was able to bring a story about a time and a place that I don’t know much about and draw me deep into the sand and the ocean of that area. I think with the popularity of Hamilton – this era of history is going to become more and more popular and Hedbor’s The Wind is just one of many Revolutionary War timed stories. I love the fact that he picks a certain place and just goes deep into it. He brings stories that you definitely didn’t hear or read in History class and makes them jump off of the page. I can honestly say, growing up in Pennsylvania that I knew very little about Florida (or the Spanish’s involvement in some of the battles). But after reading The Wind I feel like I know more (even though the story is fictional) and it makes me want to read more on the subject. Couple this with the narration of Shamaan Casey and you have a rousing tale that’s well performed. The combination of Hedbor’s writing style and Casey’s ability to make the story jump off the page and you have a Historical Fiction book that really stands out.

  • Great read!

    historical-fiction, historical-figures, historical-places-events, historical-research, mariners, US-gulf-coast, American-Rev-War Did you know that the city of Galveston is named for an important Spanish leader of the Battle of Mobile in 1780? Do you have the imagination to envision life aboard a merchant vessel that year during several hurricanes? Read about all of it from the perspective of one Spanish seaman who goes from the river trade to a war involving the British, Spain, and the treacherous weather of the North side of the Gulf of Mexico. The book is excellent for too many reasons to list, and the narration by Shamaan Casey transforms it into world class. I won the audiobook in a giveaway.
