's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: favorite-keeper-romance

I originally read Ashes In The Wind back in 1979.
I remember the date because I had just come home from the hospital with my first born Michael, who finally tied the knot this month with his partner and has given me two beautiful granddaughters.
Since this was another special moment in time, I decided to pick this "keeper" I had given five stars to back up to see if time had changed with how I felt then..and now.
Truthfully, I cant remember any of it a wonder between feeding's, diaper changes, no sleep,and one colic infant?
I do remember snatching every moment I could to get in a chapter or two, and I think escaping into Alaina and Cole's world kept me sane.
Did the passage of time and my tastes that have changed over the years lessen the magic of their romantic story?
Was I swept away and able to escape once again?
Did it live up to the five stars I had given it back then?
Darn tooting it did!
Some books remain timeless, back onto my "favourite keeper" shelf...till we read again :):)

Wendy Completely agree? This was the first of hers I'd ever read and I went on to devour the rest - KW - one of a kind!

I too have devoured all her books, I was sad about her passing :(

Wendy I didn't realise she had until fairly recently - she wrote some brilliant books. She left her mark as here we are still talking about her :(
