Determined to go to San Francisco to find her missing fiance, Hannah Wright signs on as navigator with Captain James MacRae's ship. 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. When Hannah finally agrees to marry James and go back to New York with him, Hannah jilts him on the day that his ship is to leave.
When Hannah finally returns to New York, she is dismayed to find that James is engaged to another woman. She must use all her power to win him back.
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.
