A modern day version of Grapes of Wrath, Cry into the Wind offers a revealing glimpse into the dysfunctional existence of an American Family and the healing power of duty, love and reconciliation.

Othello’s recount of her childhood—of the truck that was the only home she knew during the first six years of her life, the two-room shack that claimed her mother’s life in a tragic fire, the abusive behavior of an alcoholic father, and the eleven long years she spent with her siblings at an Oklahoma orphanage—is captivating. Recording her memories in a simple yet touching style, Othello conveys strength of emotions that have been distilled and clarified over time. Cry into the Wind is a story of triumph over adversity: a testimony to the strength of the American Spirit and a valuable source of inspiration for those struggling to overcome the effects of an abusive childhood.
