Crosswinds

I was so happy to read more about "Cat". I first observed her to be somewhat shallow. But as true with most people, the more you get to know them, the more you see their inner strength. A delightful little spit fire, she is.

best get them all and start from the beginning

excellent set of books--i got the first 2 and now with crosswinds i will be able to complete the saga--my advise, get all three and plan on a nice reading weekend.

Book 3 of this awesome trilogy.

Do yourself a favor and order all 3 books now because once you start them, you won't want to interrupt the flow of this wonderful family saga. "Chase the Wind" begins with the love of Faith and Ian.....a romance her family forbids and a future that looks doomed. But Ian comes back to Faith the night before her arranged marriage and they steal away,chased mercilessly by the adamant, evil groom to be. They head west and begin their life, giving birth to wonderful twins.....jamie and jenny. The characters are larger than life. You can feel the love, share the emotions and live their dream...and of course fall in love with them. But the ex groom finds them and seeks revenge and the twins have to face the future alone, but together. "Chase the Wind" is a halfbreed they become friends with in the horrible orphanage where they all wind up and Chase becomes an integral part of the story as do others in the orphanage. All of the characters weave throughout all 3 bks of this incredible trilogy. Book 2, "Wind of the Wolf" is not as captivating as books 1 and 3 but is so essential to fill in those middle years in the twins lives and all the problems they encounter. It also introduces the new family they make and you will laugh and cry with those relationships and dialogue. And it explains so well the place of the wolf and the fox in the storyline which is very different and symbolic of chase and jamie's blood brother relationship. It really is the glue between the first and last book. It is so significant that jamie's son is called Fox! The last book Crosswinds is incredible.....This close knit group of friends face incredible decisions together and hardships. Severl of them go to fight in the civil war and again the characters entwine magically. New relationships are enlightening and those bad guys just won't give up! so there is plenty of action. One reviewer said that "crosswinds" is more civil war history than romance. What balogna. I have never read a series with more real love and affection than this trilogy. The civil war era is perfect for these friendships to be tested. But Jenny somehow follows chase to the battle area and cat surely follows Ty and gets involved in saving him and his men!!! And of course there other friends come to the rescue. There is no way to review this series to do it justice....Just buy them and read them. They will stay in your heart forever.I promise. Absolutely incrediblewriting ms holby. congratulations.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Excellent tale of war on the home front

"Crosswinds" continues the saga of the Duncan family and friends through the tragedy of the Civil War. Ms. Holby successfully conveys the worry, grief and hardships faced by the women on the home front while their men were away fighting. Cat must keep Ty's family together while he's away with his troops - and with THESE in-laws, that's no easy task! Civil War buffs will delight in Ms. Holby's accurate research - Ty's troops will remind many of Mosby's Rangers. And meanwhile, back in Wyoming, Jenny carries on the Duncan family legacy.... This is a worthy sequel to "Wind of the Wolf" and "Chase the Wind" that her fans won't want to miss!

sweeping Civil War tale

Though she knows she is being selfish, Catherine Lynch Kincaid desperately wants her husband Tyler to return from the war as she not only misses him, but more so wonders if she will ever become the mother of his children. Catherine prays everyday for Tyler's safe return as his family plantation home is lonely.Tyler wants only to hold his beloved wife Catherine, but feels responsibility to his friends and relatives who have joined him in the fight for the Southern cause against Northern aggression. He feels his duty is to try to get as many of his comrades home alive as the War Between the States looks futile to Tyler as he anticipates the Confederacy losing. He prays every night that his darling Catherine waits for him assuming he makes it home still breathing.CROSSWINDS is more a historical tale than a romance as the audience receives a terse vivid description of the costs of war at the front and the anguish for those waiting at home. Catherine is a delightful lead character struggling not to feel she is being selfish with her desires, but still yearning for her spouse to return to her. She represents the adage that there are no atheists amongst loved one waiting for a soldier at risk. Tyler is heroic though he would deny that as he wants to leave, but desertion would dishonor him and more critical hurt those people he cares about. Though too many subplots make it difficult to follow at times, CROSSWINDS is a sweeping Civil War tale that brings to the front the horrific mental impact on everyone associated with war.Harriet Klausner
