Reviewed by Francine Zane for Readers' Favorite

In Voices in the Wind by Judy Bruce, Megan is a freshly licensed attorney home to mourn the death of her father’s law partner. It doesn’t take her long to realize her place is by her father’s side. She quickly falls into place with long-time family members and friends, and soon finds romance. But life isn’t perfect. Her mother died when she was a young child, but she cannot find a death certificate. Megan’s life is overshadowed by the feeling that there is more to her mother’s demise than she knows. Only after personal tragedy tears her world apart do the pieces of the puzzle come together.

Judy Bruce does an excellent job of describing small town life in Nebraska. From the way town gossip spreads to the way people judge others plays an integral part in Voices in the Wind, as does the harm secrets can cause a family. Megan is portrayed as a smart, strong young woman who instills confidence in others. She is compassionate and spiritual, and yet at the same time, she excels as a hard-nosed bulldog of an attorney. Her supporting cast is varied, and each cast member has a strong personality. Bruce has a unique voice. She is an expert at setting the scene and creating memorable characters. The plot is clear and entertaining, and the back story is believable and adds value. Overall, I felt drawn to my own down-home roots after reading Voices in the Wind.
