Dust In The Wind
Volume 1: The DeLaine Reynolds' Journey
by SaDonna Rogers

A horrific, killer tornado rips through Wichita Falls in 1979, launching 12 year-old DeLaine Reynolds into adolescence. Living in a tiny 'rattle-trap trailer' with her abusive step-mother and step-brother and struggling with feelings of abandonment, DeLaine starts 7th-grade at the local high school. There she faces social hierarchy, bullying and the hint of first love. Can DeLaine face the changes and challenges of normal adolescence as well as her dysfunctional family?

This story is inspired by true events.

SaDonna Rogers survived the April 10, 1979 tornado in Wichita Falls, TX, the very tornado that is the catalyst for Dust in the Wind. Inspired by that event, a life-long friend planted the seed for this story with SaDonna at the age of 14, which has blossomed into a multi volume story spanning decades. She is the proud single mother of a US Army soldier and lives in Goliad, TX with her 3 dogs and 2 cats in the country.
