Overview

In 1929, at the height of the tuberculosis epidemic, the Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville is bursting with the dying. Nearly one body an hour leaves the hill in a coffin, and Dr. Wolfgang Pike and his friend, a nurse named Susannah, risk their lives to fight this contagion. Compelled to leave the seminary for his wife, who then died, and then to delay his religious training longer in order to help the sick, Pike's faith is tested.

Reviews

James Markert tells a story of the triumph of music and faith in a dead-end place of despair and loneliness called Waverly Hills. Beautifully told, A White Wind Blew is set in a time when the klan and racism openly thrived. With a historian's eye for detail, Markert spins his story of a world where men and women were healed and made whole. - Robert Hicks, author of The Widow of the South and A Separate Country


Markert has interwoven three seemingly unrelated subjects-tuberculosis, music, and racism-into a hauntingly lyrical narrative with operatic overtones... a soaring tribute to the resiliency of life in the face of death. - Booklist
