I’m reading Anywhere The Wind Blows, the third and final book in the Megan Jones trilogy, set in 19th century Wales.

First line of the book.

It is her brother, Morgan, who comes to tell Megan the news.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

Eli’s suicide may not be what it seemed and rumours of murder are rife. The tide of goodwill towards Megan and Morgan turns to one of suspicion and doubt as Mary Williams spreads her wild rumours with impunity and the preacher’s finger of suspicion and vengeance points toward Wildwater and the mill. 
As Eli’s men turn their backs on his widow, Megan embarks on a journey to the hiring fair. Cai Traherne is also on his way there. Cai is a drifter and psychic who has secrets and troubles of his own. 
Destiny and circumstance will lead Cai Traherne to Megan’s door at Wildwater farm but will he be powerless to save Megan from her fate? 
Damaged, misguided Branwen knows what happened to Eli, but will she tell the truth or will she conspire to let another hang? 
All the old love-or-hate characters are here, along with some new ones, too; Esmerelda, the wandering gipsy who will steal and break Cai’s heart; Seamus, her brother, a spine-chilling manipulator; Albert, who seeks to destroy the good he sees in others which is absent in himself; dear Gwangwyn, Blod, and more. 
The last book in the Megan Jones trilogy, the drama of Anywhere the Wind Blows is rivalled only by the Welsh landscapes in which it is set. A tense, psychological tale of suspense, Anywhere the Wind Blows is a dramatic tale of love lost and regained, friendship, loyalty, and the redeeming power and necessity of forgiveness. 

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Megan ~ strong, honest, trustworthy.

Delightful design (add the cover of the book.)

Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

This book (series) would appeal to lovers of historical fiction and family drama, with a great cast of characters.

Your favourite line/scene.

The thought crossed my mind that perhaps I should go to the preacher and try to persuade him Eli was innocent of the sin of which the preacher accused him. The thought of Eli being buried outside of consecrated ground made me quake with fear. He would surely come back to haunt me, would not rest in a grave fit only for criminals and murderers. But what was I to say that would not turn the finger of suspicion upon me. I feared the preacher and the law as much as I feared Eli’s ghost. Fear it was that held my tongue, though Megan was in distress and I with no words of comfort for her. 

“Is it any wonder they are all against me now?” she said, seeing me standing there and pausing to lean on the hoe. She was breathless from her exertions. “If they did not hate me already because they believe I drove him to madness, they hate me now for they hold me responsible for this and all.”
