    Against the Wind PDF EPUB ´ Against theePUB æ against download, wind ebok, Against the kindle, Against the Wind MOBIThis is a novel of character among other things I found myself uickly drawn to the main protagonists with all their strengths but even their limitations and failures I can’t help but think that anyone entering the “troisième âge” cannot but connect with some of the themes in the book revisiting and confronting the distant past all the way back to high school; who were we who we are now the conflicts between those time periods but also acknowledging principles influences and even love that are still with us and that maybe define who we are after all these years And which may reuire some effort and integrity to clarifyThere’s another “character” in the novel that is a benevolent presence throughout and that is the beauty of the forests lakes rivers and nature in general in uebec The author grew up in uebec and

    Against the Wind PDF EPUB ´ Against theePUB æ against download, wind ebok, Against the kindle, Against the Wind MOBIFrom the very first page you know that the author Jim Tilley is a poet While the layout of the novel is obviously prose so many of the powerful short sentences read like lines in an elegy The main characters are extremely complex and well developed They surprise you with their ability to shake themselves out of behavioral ruts and move on with their lives in spite of strong connections to their pastThe author clearly knows the terrain that his characters navigate environmentalism uebec separatism sexual identity conflicts parenting politics live and betrayal I sped through the book but was a bit disappointed that parts of the story seemed to end a bit too neatly and too cleanly I felt that all of the decades long character conflict called for a good bit messier of an endingI hope we don’t have to wait too long for Tilley’s next novel
