Leaning into the Wind: A Memoir of Midwest Weather


Susan Allen Toth's slender little book, Leaning into the Wind: A Memoir of Midwest Weather is a perfect get-away for an afternoon or evening. Ms. Toth shares a few memories of childhood, young adulthood, parenthood, and life now as an older adult in various locations in the Midwest. The prevailing theme, obviously, is the weather: blizzards, tornadoes, straight-line winds, crushing heat and humidity, torrential rain. All play a part in this collection which is ultimately a tribute to the huge middle section of our country and the weather its residents endure.
