She grew up without a mother…
…but her little one wouldn’t.
Can the cardinal help her find true love?
Her family thinks Windy is a flighty accident waiting to happen. But with more at stake than herself, she needs to put her creativity to the test and prove them wrong.
Is there such thing as too much independence?
Kris is a private man of few words, but somehow Windy broke through his defenses. He’d like to be more than a friend, but that would mean revealing his secret.
Will he trust Windy with what he’s kept hidden?
And if he does, will she view him as someone worth building a life with?
Only the cardinal can say for sure.
Return to 1970 Indiana with Windy, the third book in The Weather Girls series for some peace, love, and Christian family values.
You will love Windy, the final book in The Weather Girls trilogy, because everyone knows the sweetest love is the one we wait for.

This has been a fun series set in 1970. This book brings back so many memories of the era, such as the unpopular Vietnam War and the attempts to avoid the draft by going to Canada. There are fun memories too, like the songs mentioned and still using pins on diapers.
Several issues are explored within the context of a well told story. God redeeming mistakes of the past is a big one as Windy has a baby conceived outside of marriage. While that may be the most important issue in the novel, there several more, such as feeling the pain of abandonment caused by a parent with mental issues and dealing with embarrassing inabilities. God's grace and mercy and redeeming love are well shown in this novel.
Windy is the youngest of the Day sisters and her story finishes out the series. You can read my reviews of the older sisters and earlier books in this series: Sunny and Stormy. This novel would be best appreciated if the previous stories were read first. Each one of them is entertaining and encouraging women's fiction.
My rating: 4/5 stars.

Do you remember The Mod Squad? I loved that 1960s TV show and thought Peggy Lipton’s character, Julie Barnes, was the coolest.
A few years ago my sister sent me a photo. She’d just gotten her hair done at a Blow Bar for the first time. With thick, naturally wavy hair, she was shocked at the transformation and had to share. “Jenny, it’s not just straight, it’s Peggy Lipton straight!” I didn’t need to question the reference. I knew exactly what she meant even before checking out the photo link. Peggy Lipton’s hair was board straight. But more than that, she had that pale blonde look with dark brows and lashes. In color draping terms, she’d be classified as a Winter.
Peggy Lipton is who came to mind as I imagined Windy June Day, the youngest of the Day sisters. I also saw her as extremely artistic and brave, but she needed her own book to fully tell her story. In her sisters’ books, you get an idea of her personality but with Windy, now you get to know what went on in her head—her fears, her spiritual journey, her essence. You also get to better understand her fierce nature and amazing potential.
I really loved writing all three of these stories, but there was something personal about Windy’s. I also was an unwed mother and had to consider my daughter before I could think about any relationship. I also learned the freedom of forgiveness and turning my past, my future, my daughter all over to the One who could bring beauty from ashes.
Windy looks at a lot of things that we today have chosen to forget or have learned to look at differently. It’s funny to think that not that long ago, those things were the normal, everyday life. I hope Windy brings back fun memories or gets you to talk to someone who might remember those days.
