Being a big fan of Jane Goodger, I couldn't wait to get my hands on her newest novel. I absolutly loved it. I've read other reviews that weren't so great, but I found this story to be wonderful.

During the 100 day journey to San Francisco, James and Hannah fall in love. Unable to admit her love, Hannah is determined that she will marry her fiance, once she finds him. Many mistakes are made and many misunderstandings tear the two lovers apart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining historical romance 14 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1851, Captain James McRae rages as he sees his bonus disappearing for lack of a navigator. To James' shock, Hannah Wright applies for the job of navigator on the clipper ship Windfire. Hannah desperately wants to go to San Francisco to find her fiancé. Her future mate departed for the coast over a year go seeking gold. James tells Hannah that she has the job if her father approves. James is confident the man will say no because women and ships do not mix.
To his shock, her father approves of Hannah as the navigator. He prays that Hannah and James fall in love so that his daughter can drop that bum she is engaged to marry. On the trip around the Horn, the captain and the navigator fall in love. However, she declines James proposal, feeling she owes it to her fiancé to stay faithful to him. James has to prove that she needs him and not some person touched by gold fever.
INTO THE WILD WIND is a warm historical romance that will garner much reader attention to author Jane Goodger. The first three-quarters of the novel is some of the best story telling found in the sub-genre, especially the dueling between the couple. However, the plot slows down a bit when Hannah refuses to accept that her fiancé is out of touch with reality and that James is her love of a lifetime. Still, even the stretch run remains quite good though not on the par excellence of the earlier subplots. Ms. Goodger provides her audience with a fabulous Americana romance that will have the audience scampering for her previous w0orks.

5.0 out of 5 stars an absolute gem 11 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a huge fan of Jane Goodger so buying her latest book was a given. Into the Wild Wind is a great read. Anyone whoe enjoys to read will love this book. It has it all, romance, suspense, betrayal, and includes such a range of emotional depth it will keep you enthralled to the very last. Jane Goodger has a way of creating characters that are believable, relatable, loveable and endearing. This book made me laugh, cry and smile, and I must say Jane Goodger has done it again. If you are just beginning to read Goodger I say continue on and do not miss any of her titles, each is a gem. And if you would like a recommendation....although I love all of her novels I am particularly fond of When there is Hope and Anything for love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Search for fiance leads to ship board romance 12 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hannah Wright is determined to go to San Francisco and find her missing fiance, Allen Pritchard. She applies for the position of navigator upon the Windfire, a sleek clipper ship. The captain agrees on one condition--her father must agree. Much to Captain James McRae's consternation, Hannah's father agrees. As they draw closer to their destination, Hannah realizes that James McRae has stolen the one thing she promised never to give any man--her heart. This book captured my attention from the very beginning. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. This love story promises adventure, entertainment and passion; all of which Jane Goodger aptly delivers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully moving. You truly can feel the wind! 24 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was honored to be able to read an advanced copy of this wonderful romance which is soon to be published. Please don't miss this one. It is truly one of the best of the genre I have ever read. Ms. Goodger is truly a talent to be recognized and this is without a doubt her best to date. In Hannah and James she has created a couple which rival the passion of Rhett and Scarlet. Ms Goodger made me feel just what it might be like on a clipper ship off the New England Coast. You can smell the salt air. The strength of Hannah's character in enduring the test of the sea and of love make her one you'll never want to leave.
