Catching the Wind wins national award

October 27, 2018 --

By Julie Zander,

Saturday evening in Nashville, at the American Christian Fiction Writers Conference, the Carol Award for historical fiction was given to Portland area novelist Melanie Dobson for her time-slip novel, Catching the Wind. The captivating novel opens with a 13-year-old boy in Germany, Dietmar, pretending to be a knight defending his princess, 10-year-old Brigitte, but their play quickly morphs into a life-and-death escape from Gestapo agents who arrested their parents. After fleeing to England, the pair is separated. Fast forward seven decades, and a wealthy old man, with help from an enterprising female journalist and a handsome male lawyer, continues his lifelong search to reconnect with the childhood friend he promised to find.
