Just finished reading The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah. Terrific story about a farming family living on the Great Plains, USA.

I’ll second that!
Unputdownable and despite the incredible hardships, a positive, life-affirming book!

Ooh, I'll have a look at that!
The last unputdownable book I read was "The Lamplighters" by Emma Stonex.

I enjoyed it. Prior to that, I read and really enjoyed The Great Alone, by the same author.

I've not read that one by Kristin Hannah, will add it to my list, but I recently read The Great Alone and thought it a wonderful story. I found myself crying at the end of it.

have almost finished The Four Winds.

Yes, very good book.

such hardship and discrimination but you can really relate to the characters.

and so many correlations to today's world.

Sounds like a good read. I don’t know Kristin Hannah so hope to have found another good author. Still reading the Lamplighters and enjoying it but love to have another book ready and waiting.

I enjoyed this book, even though it was harrowing to read about the experiences people had.

I've read The Four Winds and enjoyed it very much, so decided to try other Kristin Hannah books and have started reading Winter Garden but it's not nearly as good.

I haven’t read The Four Winds either. I will look out for it.
Kristin Hannah is a new writer to me but as recommended on GN I’m reading her book The Nightingale. An excellent read I will finish it today.

I've just reserved The Nightingale from the library Grandmadinosaur. Thanks for the recommendation.

I read this book in the summer of last year. I loved it and have recommended it on many occasions. I love this author. I’ve read all her novels. The Nightingale was stellar. Her stories are all completely different and all incredibly well researched.

For anyone who’s read The Nightingale I saw today that it’s been turned into a film. Was due for release a couple of years ago but was delayed now out in cinemas in December. As I was reading it I thought it would make an good film.
