From the moment he sets eyes on Faith, Ian Duncan knows she is the only girl for him. But her unbreakable betrothal to his employer's vicious son forces him to steal his love away on the very eve of her marriage. Faith and Ian are married clandestinely, their only possessions a magnificent horse, a family Bible, a wedding-ring quilt and their unshakable belief in each other. While their homestead waits to be carved out of the Iowa wilderness, Faith presents Ian with the most precious gift of all: a son and a daughter, born of the winter snows into the spring of their lives. The golden years are still ahead, their dream is coming true, but this is just the beginning....

Chanced upon this author & have now read through the series. Good story plots with compelling characters. A few typos but you can figure them out. Well worth the read.

This novel was very refreshing. I enjoyed the fact that not only was the book full of happiness, but it also brought real life into focus. The novel also brought out the bad times that the characters face. Most people do not find true love and live happily ever after. It was nice to read a novel that portrayed real life. I laughed, I cried. I thought it was wonderful and I can't wait to read more from this author.

The start of the book was wonderful, I could'nt put it down. Ian and Faith's love was so refreshing. Then out of the blue the main characters are viciously murdered so quickly. It felt like their love didn't even exist. The second part of the book really did not get any better because the children of Ian and Faith suffer bad luck too.(Jenny the daughter gets viciously raped. It also brought in too many new characters near the end to get to know and relate to. Instead of feeling good about this book I really felt cheated.

In 1838 in the western part of Virginia, Ian Duncan returns home to claim Faith Taylor as a wife. However, Faith is expected to wed into the wealthiest most influential family in the area, the Masons. Unable to live without his beloved, Ian persuades Faith to live up to her name and take a chance on him and their love. He and Faith marry and flee west to set up a homestead in the Iowa Territory. Fifteen years later, Ian and Faith remain happily in love and blessed with two children until her jilted Virginia fiancé Randolph Mason arrives and kills the adults. The chidlren, Jamie and Jenny go to an orphanage where she is sold to a man traveling through. Jamie and his friend CHASE THE WIND follow in order to rescue Jenny. Sub-genre readers will relish the epic nineteenth century Americana saga, CHASE THE WIND as the story line traverses several decades and the Continental United States. Fans will feel euphoria when Faith and Ian escape, but sadness with the tragic ending of their lives. The fate and search for Jenny also invokes emotion from the audience. However, the plot contains too much angst and would have been better off being divided into two tales albeit one ending tragically while the other turning into a deep love story for the second generation. Based on the strength of her cast, Cindy Holby proves she is quite talented with an enjoyable saga that fans will relish, but would gain much more pleasure to read the ¿Parts¿ as separate prequel and sequel novels.
