“Three Sheets In The Wind”: A Book Review By A Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Three Sheets In the Wind Cover

“Three Sheets In The Wind”, a sequel to “The Cat on Salter’s Point”, is quite a treat.  We see the return of some of our favorite characters but get to meet new ones as well.  The sequel takes on a life of its own while giving us a deeper view of some of the characters we already knew.  We see Rachel really grow as a wife, social worker, and as a person. But we are still entertained by Hiram.  One of the characters, a social worker, is hard to read right up to the very end and then you are hit with a big surprise.  You get a sense of nostalgia with this fictional work set in the 1980’s.  And as in the novel “The Cat on Salter’s Point”, Ms. Dixon-Thomas paints a vivid picture not only of her characters but also the unique scenery and landscape of the Great Northwest.  This book is fun and relatable and will keep you turning pages.
