About the Author:
When I accepted this book for review I had no idea it was a time travel novel. I happen to love time travel novels so it didn’t bother me in the least – in fact it added a bit for me but for someone who doesn’t care for them it might have come as a bit of a shock. I knew this was a second book in a series and I’d not had the opportunity to read the first so I went in a bit blind. All that being said, Like Chaff in the Wind read like a stand alone book for me. I did not feel any great loss at not having read the first book in the series. I do however, very much want to read the next volume – The Prodigal Son. I have the first, A Rip in the Veil on my Nexus and will hopefully find some of the spare time people are always talking about and get around to
Matthew and Alex are happily married but there is one major problem in their life – Matthew’s brother, Luke hates him with a blinding passion. Luke has Matthew kidnapped and sent to America as an indentured servant. Alex sets off to rescue him but runs into a series of delays so that she doesn’t get to him for over a year. He is on death’s door when she finally negotiates his “purchase” from his current bondholder with a payment she is loathe to make.
As they try to make their way back to Scotland the hatred of Matthew’s former owner and overseer as well as the continued threats from his brother get in the way of their quick return. Alex left their son in the hands of Matthew’s best friend and they are both anxious to see him again.
I really liked the characters in this book – well the likable ones anyway. The bad guys were really bad. Over the top bad to tell the truth and I didn’t understand the motivation for that level of hate. How many times is this brother going to keep at this? Perhaps this is why I need to read the first book…
That being written I did thoroughly enjoy the novel. With any time travel book a reader has to completely suspend any level of belief and just go with the story. This was basically a good story to be along with for a truly engaging ride.
