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.
My thoughts: The Weather Girls are back in this final story, where Windy gets a chance to shine. Known as the flighty one, it doesn't help her reputation when she winds up a single mother. Dealing with some of the ideology of the early 70's, becoming a mother serves as a wakeup call to what Windy really wanting in life. Though, will she be so focused on trying to prove she can do it all, that she misses what is right in front of her? I enjoyed getting to know Windy better, as well as steady Kris. This book deals with some of the harder aspects of the 70's, with pot and draft dodging showing up in the story. The Weather Girls add some lightness to the story with their relationships with one another. This series has been a lot of fun to read through!
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review.

About the Author
Historical Christian romance author Jennifer Lynn Cary likes to say you can take the girl out of Indiana, but you can’t take the Hoosier out of the girl. Now transplanted to the Arizona desert, this direct descendant of Davy Crockett and her husband of forty years enjoy time with family where she shares tales of her small town heritage and family legacies with their grandchildren. She is the author of The Crockett Chronicles series and The Relentless series as well as the stand-alone novella Tales of the Hob Nob Annex Café and her recent split-time novel The Traveling Prayer Shawl.
More from Jennifer
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.
