SNEAK PEEK: What the Wind Brings by Matthew Hughes

WhatTheWindBrings-Cover-smallWhat the Wind Brings — A Historical Novel with Magical Realism
By Matthew Hughes

Out of the fires of Caribbean revolution, shipwrecked onto the jungle shore of Ecuador, a slave, a captive, and a shaman fight Inquisition-era Spain for freedom.

BLURB
What the Wind Brings is a Spartacus story, set in the mysterious, deadly rainforests of 16th Century Ecuador. Against all odds, a reluctant young hero rises to lead fellow escaped slaves and indigenous tribes against the might of the Spanish throne to create a new country. Matthew Hughes’s outstanding tale unites the beauty of The Mission with a stirring clash of swords, suspense, mysticism, and epic battle strategy.
