Some book you read to stretch your intellect, and some you read to expand your heart. This novel falls in the latter category. The Wind in His Heart is a balm to the soul. This is a story about kindness, about freedom, and about the mysterious forces that move the world. The characters are well-drawn and so real you'd like to buy them a cup of coffee, or maybe sit around a campfire and listen while they play some tunes in the desert night. The plot moves along at a gentle, easy pace, neither too fast nor too slow, with plenty of action to keep the pages moving.The narration is spot-on; Tom Stechschulte's voice has gravel and grit, so fitting for a story that takes place mostly in a desert, and he voices the different accents of the characters well. Altogether, a beautiful story that I can't recommend highly enough.

de Lint is a master. The characters have depth. The story's atmosphere is rich and descriptive and obviously well-informed through either personal experience or research of some of the nuances of multicultural life in the desert Southwest. Didn't want the story to end.
This has been one of those rare stories that will probably stay with me for days and that I'll come back to again and again. It may sound corny but it not only touched my heart but also my spirit. Thank you Charles De Lindt. I'm off to check out more of your wr
