Publisher's Description

What happened to Brigitte Berthold?

That question has haunted Daniel Knight since he was thirteen, when he and ten-year-old Brigitte escaped the Gestapo agents who arrested both their parents. They survived a harrowing journey from Germany to England, only to be separated upon their arrival. Daniel vowed to find Brigitte after the war, a promise he has fought to fulfill for more than seventy years.

Now a wealthy old man, Daniel’s final hope in finding Brigitte rests with Quenby Vaughn, an American journalist working in London. He believes Quenby’s tenacity to find missing people and her personal investment in a related WWII espionage story will help her succeed where previous investigators have failed. Though Quenby is wrestling her own demons—and wary at the idea of teaming up with Daniel’s lawyer, Lucas Hough—the lure of Brigitte’s story is too much to resist. Together, Quenby and Lucas delve deep into the past, following a trail of deception, sacrifice, and healing that could change all of their futures.

    This review was written for Catching the Wind, Hardcvoer.
    Oh my heartstrings, sweet little Brigitte and brave young Daniel will completely capture your reader heart and soul with their terrifying escape to freedom. Daniel's steadfast dedication to reuniting with his dearest friend spans decades and Quenby is his final hope to locate Brigitte. Although Quenby is reluctant to accept assistance from Daniel's young (and handsome) lawyer, Lucas patiently proves himself to be a trustworthy gentleman.

    Dobson provides readers with complex characters and settings which are individually engaging and an intricate storyline that weaves past and present into a moving and heartfelt adventure.

    I requested the opportunity to read this book through the publisher. The opinions expressed are my own.

    The plot was so captivating and it made me want to read, read and read. I loved how all of the characters were spun together. The romance was not too much, like some other books can be. There is an unmistakable attraction between Quenby and Lucas. It is very realistic and intriguing.

    This book is so well written and keeps you turning the pages to find out what happens next. You wonder if the mystery will be solved in time after so many have tried. I would encourage anyone to give it a try. It is unusual in today's time of boy meets girl, problems happen and walla they end up married! This story is so intense and it keeps you wondering.

    This is the first book by this author I have read, and will definitely read more. The book goes from present time to WW 2, which some authors don't do well but Ms. Dobson does. Brigitte and Dietmar escape Nazi Germany but are separated. In present time, Quentin Vaughn is researching British citizens who helped the enemy during the war. There are some surprises and surprise ending. This story is about love, commitment, faith, and overcoming trials in life.

    Catching The Wind is only the second Melanie Dobson book that I've read, but oh WOW oh WOW! This beautiful, heart-wrenching, wonderful story of loss, love, sacrifice, of hope regained, and picking up the pieces is sure to take readers on an emotional ride.

    I will admit that, at first, I had a hard time with the multi-perspective layout of the story. But that quickly changed when I realized how Melanie Dobson was using it to so richly layer the story, so that readers were able to get a complete view of the dramatic and heart-breaking events. It really didn't take me long to be so completely absorbed that I no longer noticed. I just had to keep going, to find out if my wild imaginings could be true, if things would turn out in the end.

    I really can't say enough about this multi-faceted story. Very rarely do I run into a book where I feel completely self-satisfied as I turn that last page, but Catching The Wind did that for me. The author's exquisite attention to detail, the rich layering, the depth of each character, left me feeling as if I was right there alongside the characters, experiencing everything with them.

    A book and an author that highly recommend! If you love historical fiction Melanie Dobson's newest, Catching The Wind, is a jewel you won't want to miss!
