After losing a leg during the Civil War, Caleb Connors heads west. In the Wyoming Territory he breaks his remaining limb. With a chicken pox epidemic devastating the area, only Amanda Myers is available to nurse Caleb back to health, which she does.

However, the nurse falls in love with her patient, but assumes Caleb could never reciprocate those feelings with a fallen woman like she is as she was forced to live in a brothel and while there became addicted to opium. Caleb actually loves his angel of mercy. He helps her fight her addiction, but though he confesses his love she rejects him for his sake until she sees the portrait he painted of her.

The latest "Wind" Americana historical romance (see WIND OF THE WOLF and WINDFALL) provides a deep entertaining look at Wyoming during the end of the Civil war and beginning of the Reconstruction Era. However, unlike the previous tales the violence that existed is ignored as if Lynch Ranch is an oasis that avoids the dangerous marauding and outlawry that plagued the Territory. Still the lead couple is a delightful pairing of two likable individuals mentally devastated by the war and in the case of Caleb physically too. The Cindy Holby nineteenth century sagas are fabulous tales worth chasing after as they are pleasant and vibrant reads.

FROM BACK COVER:
Caleb Conners had returned from battle a changed man, uncertain whether he could still meet the rugged demands of ranching in Wyoming, unwilling to take up the drawing that had once been his life. With only half a leg, could he really perform as a whole man?

Amanda Myers knew what it meant to live without hope, without dreams. For years she had been forced to do the will of others, but now she'd landed in a safe haven on Lynch Ranch, bolstered by smiling faces, the laughter of children, and Caleb. When she looked upon his portrait of her, she saw a new vision of herself. Through his eyes she rediscovered her own purity and strength of purpose, and in him she found the enduring love she'd prayed for.

This is the 5th book in a series that started with Chase The Wind, Winds of the Wolf, Crosswinds and Windfall. The series continues with this book then continues in Whirlwind. Each book tells a complete story but many of the characters appear in many of the books.
