The sequel to The Language of Sand by Ellen Block

The Definition of Wind: A Novel

The Definition of Wind

By: Ellen Block

Genre: fiction

Series: Abgail Harker #2

Pages: 288

Published: 2011

Read: April

4 out of 5 stars

The sequel of The Language of Sand will not disappoint you. This series will touch every woman’s soul. The continuation of Abgail’s personal growth and process of becoming accustomed to life on Chapel Isle is enlightening, yet with enough suspense you cannot pick the book down until the end. The language in which Block writes intertwines beautifully with Abby’s career as a lexicographer. Block’s novels are quick, easy and very enjoyable reads. Great for lying on a beach and reading – I read in April, but I can wish! The only negative aspect for me was that Block weaved throughout a lot of background information from the first novel; which is great unless you recently read it as I have. It was very repetitive for me.  Although you could read this novel as a stand-alone, I would highly recommend reading The Language of Sand first.   These are her only two novels, although she wrote The Lightning Rule under the Brett Ellen Block.
