In the Shadow of the Wind: A Story of Love, Loss, and Finding Life Again (Paperback)
Following a series of tragic losses, thirty-year old Ann Fell struggles alone in a strange and frightening world. The young widow and bereaved mother retreats to the wilderness for comfort and healing. Planning to stay forty days, she sets up a solitary camp on the river bank of her family’s abandoned farm homestead. Marooned by rising flood waters after only a few days, she faces her own mortality. There is life after loss. Through a sequence of extraordinary events, In the Shadow of the Wind tells how one ordinary woman learns to dance on the threshold of fear, to cherish every moment of life, and to believe in her inner resources to conquer adversity.
Ann Christine Fell was born and raised in Kansas. She has spent time as a high school science teacher and a piano teacher. She is a musician, nature lover, piano technician, photographer, and an award-winning writer. When she is not writing, she enjoys playing her piano, hammering on a dulcimer, ringing handbells, gardening, wandering the prairie in her front yard and spending time with grandchildren.
