A Journal Of My Reviews: Ashes in the Wind, by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss [4]

It seems from my own experience and others that the earlier books look at the dates are the best. Three Huge, Terrible Misunderstandings and still three quarters to get through?

I believe he said — ah, yes — here it is. Apr 15, Chiara Allegranti rated it it was amazing. Alaina e Cole sono due personaggi veramente ben caratterizzati, mi sono piaciuti pure i loro difetti! We’re featuring millions of their reader ratings on our book pages to help you find your new favourite book.

I originally read this as a young teen and loved it. Yes, it does follow some of the typical romance patterns but the story was completly orginal. Alaina was so much of what I identified with at that age and aspired to from the metamorphosis from tomboy into beautiful young woman, the heroine–she’s pulling the hero out of scrapes multiple times, not sitting back wilting and waiting, some fantastic friends, and some less than stellar family.

Alaina is many things, but foremost among them: Since this was another ahes moment in time, I decided to pick this “keeper” I had given five stars to back up to see if time had changed with how I felt then.

The first publisher on her list, Avon, quickly purchased the novel and arranged an initialprint run. The various roles young southern lady Tne plays come through believably, especially through the eyes of our honorable and somewhat hapless Yankee doctor hero, Cole. In a drunk stupor, Cole awakes and mistakes Alaina for a prostitute in a brothel.

There’s a connection and chemistry here that actually overshadows the common scientific ministrations of a libertine initiating a virgin or near-virgin to sexual passion, a initiation “plot” often dominating romance novels.

Profound emotion and love scenes that make your toes curl without a graphic detail included make this one for the ages. Still the book was fun overall, epic in proportions, the love was equal parts fun and heartwarming by highlighting the connection between our leading pair, and the plotting was laced with engaging intrigue. The Flame and the Flower revolutionized mainstream publishing, featuring an epic historical romance with a strong heroine and impassioned sex scenes.

She is saved from them by a young Yankee surgeon, Captain Cole Latimer from Minnesota, a man of honor and great medical talent who is respectful of Southerners.

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. Mar 21, Kimberly Carrington-Fox rated it it was amazing Shelves: Strong prose and vivid settings makes everything better and Woodiwiss definitely excels on both accounts.

After her husband’s death inshe moved back to Louisiana. Alaina MacGarenCole Latimer. Anyone who’s seen Gone With the Wind, and who would be reading this book if they hadn’t, should’ve been able to easily imagine each scene with a little less than what we are Boy, I really have to start thinking before I read books on a dare When I was growing up, I saw my mother and grandmother reading and e.wiodiwiss romances, and when I was old enough to read them myself, I felt as if I had been admitted into a special sisterhood of reading women.

Ashes in the Wind

She long relished creating original narratives, and by age six was telling herself stories at night to help herself fall asleep. KEW’s plots and settings again reign supreme crafting a circumstance which has “Al” inexplicably save a drunk and unconscious Cole from the river one night. It did leave me with some enjoyable moments. Alaina literally running into Jacques – 4 times What wknd book!

But that’s OK cause it’s still great. The Civil War is not a romantic period and this book spends more time dealing with the realities of shortages and renderings of ew.oodiwiss care and issues varnishedalbeit far behind lines, but you get bone saw and various triage arguments. On the down side, this also attracts DuBonne’s attentions.

Part one ends with the conclusion of the war as a crippled and limping Cole takes his unhappy and acrimonious wife Roberta back to his home in Minnesota.
