But luckily my years in Dickensian retreat prepared me quite well for that obstacle.

Ashes in the Wind : Kathleen E. Woodiwiss :

I couldn’t put it down. That said, d.woodiwiss in all my years of reading have I encountered a heroine I wanted to slap more than Alaina “Al” MacGaren. Being that as I stated earlier girls-in-pants don’t do it for me, it made for a VERY long first half of the book.

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Hawthorne’s niece and finally Alaina can act like a lady for once. Truthfully, I cant remember any of it I will have to read other KEW books in the future, and I wonder if there’s other civil war love stories out there.

She was survived by two sons, Sean kahleen Heath, their wives, and numerous grandchildren.

Ashes in the Wind

The tension-filled, witty altercations were often fun mainly because there was a genuine back-and-forth. We use cookies to give you the best possible experience.

It thee that which a man holds within himself until it blooms to its fullest. Admittedly, one of my biggest pet peeves in a story is the whole “girl-in-pants” deal.


You will feel you are living it and you will celebrate Alaina’s strength and intelligence. In a drunk stupor, Cole awakes and mistakes Alaina for a prostitute in a brothel. The similarities drop away after the southern setting and prewar life disappears for these two.

I’ll rate it 3 stars here for the fact that the last or so pages were VERY entertaining and true to the art form of bodice-ripper writing. I all but gulped and breathed it in voraciously, reading katjleen eating, getting up during the night to see what would happen next, only to end up reading all night long, and sighed with satisfaction and gratification, in the afterglow of the end.

Woodiwiss’s original and only paperback publisher; William Morrow, Avon’s sister company, publishes Kathleeh.

It is a compelling tale of a young Southern woman from Louisiana who loses everything in the Civil War. You won’t regret reading this one–it’s a keeper! Alaina assumes the identity of her friend Mrs. As I was reading it, parts started coming back to me and I used to read a lot of Woodiwiss in the early ’80s so I must have read this book.

This is a captivating saga that pulls you into the story and you will not want to put it down. The story offers a core mystery well wrapped in several others, plenty of action, suspense, romantic moments though not as many love scenes as readers like me might hopeand a wonderfully satisfying ending. The novel revolutionized mainstream publishing, featuring an epic historical romance with a strong heroine and impassioned sex scenes.


Apr 15, Chiara Allegranti rated it it was amazing.

De hecho parecen varios libros en uno. I don’t think I’ll read this book again. I also felt the pacing meandered quite a bit in this page epic with seemingly pointless passages. Her attorney, William Messerlie, said that she died after a long illness.

Anyone who’s seen Gone With the Wind, and who would be reading this book if they hadn’t, should’ve been able to easily imagine each scene with a little less than what we are Boy, I really have to start thinking before I read books on a dare Her characters are richly drawn.

Dressed as a dirty, ragged boy to protect her identity and the price on her head, Cole has no idea who this is and escorts “Al” to her uncle’s home in New Orleans, Angus Craighugh. I can’t wrap my head around the idea of a woman passing off as a man for any long period of time. Uno dei migliori libri della Woodiwiss che ho letto.
