The Four Winds of Love Series is a novel written by Compton Mackenzie and published by Chatto & Windus in 1949. It is a tale of love and friendship over three generations. The love of John Ogilvie for the glorious Athene, for the Irish patriot, Fitzgerald, for Emil and Julius Stern, those twin geniuses of music and revolution, is seen growing like a tree through the storms of war and the fitful sunbursts of peace, sternly tested by personal conflicts and world problems, ramifying in the numerous minor characters whose vivacity proves the versatile mind of their creator. They are young, they grow old-John and his friends- in a troubled age. Their changes and chances, their warring ideals, their tragi-comedies, their gift of irrepressible hope, are strangely familiar to us. These men and women might be ourselves. Volume One: The East Wind of Love - Book One & Two. Volume Two: The South Wind of Love - Book One & Two. Volume Three: The West Wind of Love - Book One & Two. Volume Four: The North Wind of Love - Book One & Two. 1949 Impression. Condition of all 8 volumes: Very good with a very small bookshop stickers affixed at front pastedown's bottom right corner.
