Five years have passed since Lady Anjou Winslow, one of the triplet daughters of the Marquess Ashbury, watched her love, Lieutenant Gardiner, leave for the war in America. They were secretly married just before his departure, and though the War Office has declared him dead, she refuses to believe it. No trace of him was ever found.
Private enquiry agents, hired by Lord Ashbury, have searched to no avail, yet something inside Anjou refuses to believe her husband is dead. Despite her fears of the ocean, she therefore convinces her brother to escort her on the long voyage to America.
Captain Edward Harris, the Wind's brusque master, does not want her on his ship. Nevertheless, he consents to her passage after her desperate pleas. As Anjou and Charles search for Lieutenant Gardiner, more comes to light than either expected. Will Edward somehow stand in the way of her lost love's return?

With the Wind by Elizabeth Johns A Series of Elements Series Book Three Lady Anjou Winslow has kept a secret for some time now. As a triplet, the three identical girls are very close...but even they didn't know. Aidan Gardiner was more than a beau. He had been her husband. And Anjou would not rest or move on with her life until she found out what had happened to him when he went to the war in America and never returned. Anjou and her brother, Charles, travel on his friend's ship to America. Several different stories are going on besides just the search for Aidan. Several different points of view too. I've enjoyed this series as each sister finds love. Anjou's story is truly unique.
