A woman burdened by war...A doctor torn between passion and duty...A sweeping tale of love in the face of dishonor from the incomparable storyteller--Kathleen Woodiwiss.
Alaina MacGaren is forced to flee the devastation of her homeland in the guise of a young boy, only to find sanctuary in the arms of an enemy. Cole Latimer is a dashing Yankee surgeon who has served the Union faithfully, and his tender heart compels him to help a ragged, innocent "lad" in need--never suspecting the rags conceal a bewitching belle suspected of being a rebel spy.
But Alaina's masquerade does not fool Cole for long. And the strength, courage, and breathtaking sensuality of this woman whom it would be treasonous to love sets duty and desire at war within him. Yet Destiny has joined them for good or ill--and they both must follow where their hearts would lead them, if they are to build a glorious new life together out of the ashes of the old.

Great story, bad editing
Love the story but someone needs to correct the typos! When the Sheriff spits tobacco into the 'cyrass', I'm pretty sure they mean 'grass'.
One of my all-time favorites
Ashes in the Wind is one of my all-time favorite books. I’ve read it many times, and never get tired of it. You can open it to any page and become immediately immersed in the story. The story begins in my home state of Louisiana during the Civil War, and honestly addresses the struggles and emotional upheaval faced by people on both sides of the war between the states. Most of all, it’s a timeless story of deep, abiding love.
One of her best
Very, very good book! This was an excellent story with a good twist at the end. Woodiwiss is my favorite author and she certainly doesn't disappoint with this one. Cole and Alaina endure much but they are made for each other and this is a read that is hard to put down.
