Book Description

April 1 1981
A woman burdened by war...A doctor torn between passion and duty...A sweeping tale of love in the face of dishonor from the incomparable storyteller--Kathleen Woodiwiss.

Alaina MacGaren is forced to flee the devastation of her homeland in the guise of a young boy, only to find sanctuary in the arms of an enemy. Cole Latimer is a dashing Yankee surgeon who has served the Union faithfully, and his tender heart compels him to help a ragged, innocent "lad" in need--never suspecting the rags conceal a bewitching belle suspected of being a rebel spy.

But Alaina's masquerade does not fool Cole for long. And the strength, courage, and breathtaking sensuality of this woman whom it would be treasonous to love sets duty and desire at war within him. Yet Destiny has joined them for good or ill--and they both must follow where their hearts would lead them, if they are to build a glorious new life together out of the ashes of the old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't get enough of Kathleen! March 22 2013
By Sue
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok, so I'm a Kathleen Woodiwiss junky ... I love everything that she has written. I originally bought this book 25 years ago, and lent it out and never got it back. I have all of her novels, and reread them often. I hadn't read Ashes in 25 years and thought since I didn't have it in book form, I 'd buy it in Kindle, so glad I did. Love, Love the characters, her writing brings them to life to the point that I feel like I'm standing right there with them. Absolutely fabulous ... a must read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable Civil War Romance Jan. 10 2008
By Misfit TOP 500 REVIEWER
While this is not Gone With the Wind, it is still a highly enjoyable civil war romance, heavy on the romance and light on the history. Sometimes, one still has to resort to the guilty pleasures of romantic fiction and this is a good choice. Alaina and Cole are very sweet, and "Al" and "his" antics are hysterical, as are Cole's reactions to him. Of course it takes forever for our H&H to get together, but the scene where they argue chasing each other back and forth between adjoining bedrooms was very entertaining, and the sparks were flying.

The ending was a bit trite and predictable, but I loved the epilogue. I had hoped the author would resolve that one last issue. All in all, very entertaining, I had a difficult time putting it down for more than a few moments, and I will read this again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book to Disappear Into March 13 2004
By Marisa
From the moment you start reading you will not want to put this book down. Kathleen is a master and this is one of my favorite novels by her. I feel so much emotion for both Alaina and Cole. Laugh at the antics of "Al" and want to shout at Cole for not seeing the truth before his eyes. The scenery, characters and story line are so vividly described you will want to go to sleep at night just to dream...

5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable! March 4 2004
By A Customer
I enjoyed "Ashes" immensely and can't wait to read more of Kathleen Woodiwiss' books. She has a wonderful, flowery writing style and vibrant characters that keep you hooked, page after page. At first I was a bit disappointed with the switch from Civil War New Orleans to Minnesota (!), but KW's sense of storytelling, atmosphere and suspense (for awhile it felt like a Victoria Holt gothic!) made this book such a treat, I couldn't put it down. Isn't that the joy of reading? For no other reason, let this book entertain you, which should never be underestimated!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The book that started my romance with romance Jan. 25 2003
If I could only take one book from all of my romance books to that desert island, it would be this one. I have been reading romance novels for 20 years but this one is still my favorite and I read it every couple of years, just to enjoy it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Classic Nov. 1 2002
By A Customer
A great great story, all the way through. Not boring as some of KW's books can get in spots. I liked the fact that the author gave us a long, very interesting story to follow, as it adds substance to romances. In this instance, KW was talented enough to pull it off without losing the reader's interest. Wonderful characters! Alaina was a great heroine. Don't expect to read this one in one or two nights, as it deserves to be savored slowly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quiet beautiful, but... July 18 2002
By Suzanna
The story flow beautifully on the beginning chapters. then, it started to get monotoneus in the middle till the end, and really predictable. It is as if the readers are guide to tell the story not to view it. Worse again, the topics are 'jumpy',from one plot to the other.
Overall, it is not so bad, however it is not the best from other of her novels. Still romantic, sweet telling, but not enough description on the man's feeling. Woodiwiss makes the hero sound so childish and dull. I like her "Elusive Flame" much much better.
