This is a continuation of the story begun in Chase the Wind.
Jenny had dreamed of him as a girl, seen their lives unfold in a vision that foretold both enduring love and unendurable loss. Now Chase was her husband and he nightly took her to heights beyond her imagining.
But the winds of change were blowing, bringing unexpected tragedy and inconsolable tears. The country was on the brink of civil war, and Jenny dreamed of wolves outside the cabin door.
Like one of the wolves intent on prey, Chase pursued vengence with a single-mindedness that seemed to leave no place for her in his life. Gone was the tender lover who'd conquered her fears, replaced by a savage hunter who more closely resembled his Apache forebears than the lonely boy who'd given her his heart long ago. This was the dark and faceless stranger who'd once haunted her fantasies and she swore she's win him back and not lose him.
The series continues with Crosswinds, Windfall, Forgive the Wind and Whirlwind.

In 1860 on the Lynch Wyoming ranch, Jenny and Chase are attracted to one another almost from the first moment they meet. They eventually exchange vows of love that both believe is forever as each one of the couple presumes he or she is the luckiest person on the earth. They marry and soon Jenny becomes pregnant. However, happiness ends when an enemy of Chase kills Jenny's brother on his wedding day. Feeling guilty and angry, Chase vows to revenge the death of his best friend.
Chase deserts Jenny and begins tracking the culprit Logan. As his heart fills with darkness, his spouse wants her beloved back not this brooding stranger who shows up periodically. She misses her sibling too, but her energy is to help the man she cares about above her own life find his way back into the light of love.

This story is at its best with flashbacks to a happier times as the present (and much of the book) is spent in separation. The key couple is a delightful duo, but the audience barely sees them together except in memories. This makes for strong relational realism, but hurts the romantic element. Cindy Holby displays her talent with an insightful look at tragedy on the eve of the Civil War.
