Mildred May Robinson suffered from undiagnosed, untreated mental illness after her birth mother did something horrible to her when she was an infant. Rescued and loved by her adoptive family, Mildred lived an idyllic childhood until she married at seventeen, and her life began to spiral downward.

While Mildred and her seven children lived in squalor, her birth mother lived a life of luxury and privilege. Mildred never spoke of her abuse by her birth mother and the cause of her mental illness. Only her adult daughter did.

Women of the Wind is the gripping true story of three generations of women born into dire circumstances like dandelion seeds blowing aimlessly. Possessing the inherent strength to endure and begin anew, the women of the wind not only survived these harsh conditions, they grew and flourished like beautiful dandelion flowers.

You'll feel connected to Mildred's family through Angela Gail Griffin's memorable anecdotes and thirty-two photographs. The adventures of Mildred's youngest daughters bring joy to the story as they find their way to a better life.
