title of this week s book it s the name of the fictional town in which our story takes place Windblowne is on a mountain and the residents live in treeouses I like to imagine Endor without the Ewoks

continues Messer never uite comes out and saysere is the deal with Windblowne and I really admire that choice Windblowne is not a real place of course and there are some almost magical ualities about
