Overview

Where the Wind Blows, book one of USA Today bestselling author Caroline Fyffe’s award-winning, western historical romance Prairie Hearts series

In the free and untamed Wild West, love might blossom in the most unexpected place.…

When the man from the orphanage mistakes Chase Logan for Jessie Strong’s husband, the least Chase can do is help Jessie adopt the child she so desperately wants, the little girl who will be Jessie’s only family in the Wyoming wilderness. Three days are all she asks. Three days pretending to love a woman who is unlike any he has ever known.…

Jessie knows it’s chivalry, plain and simple, that spurs Chase Logan to come to her rescue the day little Sarah arrives at her door. A man like him isn’t made for settling down; he is as wild as the land he roams. She should know better than to let down her guard, to allow herself to long for a family and a life with someone she hardly knows. And yet she dares to hope that maybe, just maybe, Chase Logan is the man destined to make all of her dreams come true.

Editorial Reviews

Harriet Klausner
“WHERE THE WIND BLOWS is a wonderful western romance with a Shane like hero who knows he should ride off into sunset but keeps delaying what he thinks is the inevitable. Jessie and Sarah are terrific as they both cherish and shower Chase with love and affection while the mom fears a broken heart for her but is more frightened by the impact on her adopted daughter when he leaves as she expects him to do. Caroline Fyffe provides sub-genre fans with a great tale.”
Shirley Lyons
“Here is a debut novel not to miss. If you are a western fan, this will make you shout for joy that someone has gotten it so right. I will put Where the Wind Blows on my keeper shelf and revisit it from time to time, knowing that I did not discover all the gems in it the first time around.”
Sandra Marlow
“EVERY NOW AND THEN A BOOK COMES ALONG THAT IS JUST SO TENDER, SO LOVELY, YOU CAN’T HELP THE EMOTIONS THAT ROLL THROUGH YOU…THIS IS ONE OF THOSE BOOKS.” –The Good, The Bad and The Unread

    Even the secondary characters in this book are endearing. A family is formed with bits and pieces of tattered lives. Romances flourishes . Enemies are vanquished. What more could you want. Highly recommend.

    a wonderful western romance

    In 1888 Wyoming recluse Chase Logan informs Jessie Strong that her husband died. He feels for her, but plans to leave. People assume he is her spouse so he remains a little longer until she can adopt a three years old waif Sarah.

    He delays his plan to leave again when she is threatened by a thug. He marries her to keep mother and daughter safe though he still plans to leave. As time moves on and Jessie anticipates his leaving, she knows he has her heart and that of Sarah; she figures she will be okay but sad but fears for her child when she loses another parent. However, the ascetic Chase keeps putting off his leaving rationalizing to himself why he stays; deep down he knows he loves his two feisty females.

    WHERE THE WINDS BLOW is a wonderful western romance with a Shane like hero who knows he should ride off into sunset but keeps delaying what he thinks is the inevitable. Jessie and Sarah are terrific as they both cherish and shower Chase with love and affection while the mom fears a broken heart for her but is more frightened by the impact on her adopted daughter when he leaves as she expects him to do. Caroline Fyffe provides sub-genre fans with a great tale.

    Could not put it down!

    Jessie and Chase's story had sadness, joy, and sexual tension. Sweet and wonderfully written. Over 500 pages. A definite read if you enjoy western romances that take place during the1800's.

    Good read

    This is NOT a book I will keep to read again... it had mild language which I would really prefer not to read. The story in itself was a good story, the author keeps you guessing throughout. The love story of this book was a powerful romance and many times caught me off guard with thye twists and turns along the way. If you like historical reads like arranged marriages or shotgun weddings this is one you will enjoy.

    Enjoyed it

    This the first time I have read this author. Would pick up another book by this same author. Mrs. Hollyhock reminded me of a Bantam hen.

    Where the Wind Blows

    Another fine story by Caroline Fyffe. She has a gift of combining a western, romance and mystery with a colorful description of the wild west.
    I like her characters and especially the strong family ties that binds
    them together through the good and bad times.

    This is a sweet historical romance, but not saccharine-sweet. A

    This is a sweet historical romance, but not saccharine-sweet. And the characters are so well-developed I felt myself pulled into their lives, which only happens with the best of books. After I finished it I had to sit and savor it a while. It truly is a "feel good" book, and sometimes that is exactly what everyone needs! I loved the "Little House on the Prairie" books as a girl, and when I describe this as "Little House" for grownups I mean that in the most complimentary way. It made me long for simpler times. I can't wait to read more of Caroline's books!

    Wonderful read!

    I am absolutely a new fan of Carolyn Fyffe. I found "Where the Wind Blows" at the Kindle Store and I could not put it down. The characters came alive on the page. Her writing is descriptive with beautiful imagery of the old west. I could see what they saw and feel what they felt. The unfolding plot held me captive as the strangers Chase Logan and Jessie work toward a common goal. Fyffe brings a variety of blended personalities together and in the end the reader finds herself in the midst of a wonderful lovely family. Nicely done!

    Romance+Western+Inspirational=Great Book

    I grew up reading Louis L'Amour, so I'm picky when it comes to Westerns. I want to hear the leather creak, smell the horses and feel the wind on my face. "Where the Wind Blows" gave me all of these things and more. I cared about the characters from the first page. The settings felt true, the descriptions rich without being overly done. As I moved through the hopes and disappointments of the lead characters, I found myself caught up in their world. A romance with a sensual undertone but no cheap shots, it's a delight. It reminded me of "Will Penny" in its unexpected romance. While not an overtly Christian novel, it has decidedly inspirational themes. Carolyn Fyffe is an author to watch.

    Very Good Read!!!!!

    Hard to believe this is the author's debut book. An enjoyable, clean romance with characters you can care about. A story that will keep you reading with all the action and romance, until the last page. I liked everything about this book and I normally don't care for romance but will read western novels, so I decided to give this one a try. Was very pleasantly surprised to like this book and look forward to Caroline Fyffe's upcoming novel.

    You Won't Be Disapointed!

    This novel allowed me to escape into a simpler time. It brought out so many emotions lost to stress of the day. This is a wonderful story of love and forgivness with old time values and senses long forgotten. Looking forward to more of the same!

    A Great Read

    Loved the colorful phrases of common things that became little mental clicks. I don't usually read westerns but this one got me. Since the creative world has bottomed out this novel brings fresh air back to writing.

    A Wonderful Debut with a Heartwarming Romance

    This was a heartwarming romance between a loving, caring young woman who's had more than her share of heartache and a handsome hero who thinks that the last thing he wants is to be tied down. There were so many great things about this book that it's hard to believe it was a debut. I loved the subplot with the children...they were sweet and sincere and needed a family so much that I just couldn't help but cheer them along every step of the way. I loved that Jessie didn't expect a man to take care of her problems, or even want him to if it would cost him, yet she longed for the promise of love and life with Chase. I loved that Chase wanted to do the right thing--but without letting his heart get involved (too bad for him:-). I loved the supporting characters, who were brought to life by the author: the busybody Mrs. Hollyhock who always had Jessie's best interests at heart, Chase's surrogate father Frank Lloyd, that nasty Beth (I wanted to slap her face!), and the villains, who got what they deserved. There were "extras" that I didn't expect but which made the book even more satisfying, such as the incorporation of Jake, the fact that the hero didn't really believe in God but turned to God for help when he needed it most, and a couple of plot things that happened at the end (which I won't spoil by telling you!). If you're looking for a sweet romance, a western historical, or a new uplifting voice, buy Where The Wind Blows. You'll love it!
