Forgive the Wind is a compelling family saga about a soldier who lost his leg in the Civil War, and a young woman who was kidnapped and forced into prostitution. Together, with the support and friendship of a cast of characters I have come to love, the two reach out to one another and overcome the horrors of their pasts. Cindy's vivid writing style promises a visit to the Old West. Enjoy the vacation. Warning: You won't be able to put this one down until the last page.

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.--- Harriet Klausner

Cindy Holby continues her Duncan-Lynch series with this newest installment. Ranch hand Caleb struggles to pick up the pieces of a life shattered by the trauma of the Civil War, while Amanda, rescued from forced prostitution, must heal from years of sexual abuse. All this as the Duncan-Lynch family fights a range war. Holby gives us a sweet, sensitive romance and a painfully accurate picture of a sexual abuse survivor. We can't help but cheer this charming, wounded couple as Caleb rediscovers his manhood despite an amputated leg, and Amanda as she rebuilds scarred life. Highly recommend
