ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Jean-YvesFortuny_675x900I wrote only for myself. The story stayed in my mind for many years. Why? That, I don’t know; it was probably an interpretation of the life I had elaborated in my mind during all this time. As time passed, I thought of the story omre and more; it had come to the point where there were so many questions that I had no choice but to find the answers. So, one fine morning, I decided to write this story. This was necessary; it was one of those days where renewal, where feelings of “Why not?”, were called for.

About Voices in the Wind:

The story is set in western Nebraska in the American Midwest. A young attorney accepts a job at her imperious father’s law firm, which forces her to confront tragedies old and new, and leads her into a harrowing fight for survival and the transformation that brings forgiveness and a new perspective.

Along the way, the heroine, Megan, must deal with a crooked attorney, a tornado, lots of root beer, a blond stud, voices in the wind, heartbreak, a lunatic with a shotgun, delicious pastries, isolation, and lies.

This rugged High Plains land of Megan’s hometown is the desolate, windblown, harsh land of the pioneer, American Indian, and cowboy. Even in adulthood, it stirs a strange yearning in Megan, as she deals with the pressures of a law firm and a new love, as well as her attempts to unravel the haunting mystery surrounding her mother. Meanwhile, a disturbed neighbor seeks vengeance against Megan and her friend, driving them into the darkness of the rough land in a test of her wits, fortitude, and resourcefulness. Ultimately, her greatest challenge is to forgive.
