24 September, 2009 Book Reviews 0

This is the first novel that I have read of Rita Gerlach’s. And I will say that this book is worth reading a thousand times over!

Set in the 1700’s, this story brings you straight into the American Revolution era of fancy dresses and men in suits with longer hair and to where a young man is struggling between staying in America, the land he bled for, or traveling to England to reunite with his sister. He chooses to seek his sister out, only to find he’s arrived in the middle of a tragedy~the death of his nephew. During this untimely tragedy, he meets a young woman who’s free will and gentleness captures his heart. But there’s just one problem~someone wants the home of the young man’s grandfather, and the woman who stole his heart! Now, the question is, will their love be stronger than the plots against them? Find out in this MAGNIFICENT, timeless love story!!

I never heard of Rita Gerlach before, but I came across her name and was fortunately blessed to obtain a copy of Surrender the Wind. This is not normally the style of stories I read, but Ms. Gerlach’s wonderfully written story quickly captured me and has me wanting to read ALL her books! I give this book two thumbs up with highest praises to the author, who just gained a new fan!! Wonderfully done, Ms. Gerlach!
