About the Author
Judy DuCharme is a crazy Packer fan and would rather be walking near the water than at any shopping mall. She is smarter than a fifth grader, having taught them for 22 years, specializing in fun, hands-on, basic science. In case anyone wondered, the cutest grandson in the world belongs to her. And he’s smart, too. Judy descended from the family that founded the first Mennonite/Amish congregation in this country in the mid-1700s. So, with such a heritage, she loves the Lord, loves to worship, and loves to teach Bible studies
More from Judy
Have you ever watched You Tube videos of cows giving birth? Well, I have. And that’s because Linney Merritt helped birth the calves in the late 1800s in mid-Florida. And that’s why she had no interest in giving birth herself. So when the new hand arrived, it turned her plans topsy-turvy, but she was not going to budge. With humor and tenacity, Linney and Cy learn to work together on her pa’s ranch and consider other possibilities.
Run With the Wind is a holiday novella that is written by Judy DuCharme. It was fun reading this in the midst of the 90 degrees and humidity in SE Alabama. I loved that this focused on ranching in Florida. Usually we see everything set on the West. So it was a nice change of pace.
Linney was good character. She enjoyed working the cattle. She doesn’t mind getting dirty. She helps her Pa when they take the cattle to the market. The other cowhands respect her and she is well liked. Cyrus John is thankful to start fresh. He’s well mannered and wants to do a good job. However, he’s drawn to Linney. Both are content with their lives and are not considering any changes. But the two of them are drawn to each other.
The characters are well written. The story line intriguing. I enjoyed learning about the cattle driving process. I also loved how since this is set around Christmas that the author wove on the story of Jesus and his birth.
I received a copy of this book through the Celebrate Lit Blogging Program, all thoughts are my own.
