When the Wind Blows Author:John Saul To the Indians, the ancient mine was a sacred place, the dark sanctuary where the souls of little children slep. To the residents of Amberton, Col., it was their source of livelihood, until, at the beginning of this century, tragedy struck.This closed the mine and revived the lore that whispered this was an ewvl place, where, when the wind blew,... more » the cries of long-dead children could be heard.
At the request of the mine's owner, a young mining engineer and his wife had come with their child to re-open the mine--and had died horribly in it, leaving no will, no money, and no relatives to care for their little daughter Christie.
Who will weep for the orphaned child? When Miss Diana Amber takes nine-year-old Christie in, and old drama of domestic evil is rekindled. Little Christie, alone and defenseless after her parents' tragic deaths, consigned to the Ambers' decaying attic nursery where once another child lived--and died--is about to join the lost children of the mine.
One by one, the children of Amberton will disappear into the blackness...and the evel of Ambertpon will embrace her WHEN THE WIND BLOWS.« less
