Chasing The Wind By Paula Scott

Welcome to the Chasing the Wind blog blitz and giveaway, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

Here is a little excerpt from Chasing the Wind...

Peter felt the tremor in Isabella’s hand. “Why didn’t you tell me you came from this kind of
life?” He waved his other hand out over the ballroom.
“I didn’t come from this kind of life. I came from a rancho.
You came from wealth and privilege.
She smiled, but the smile didn’t reach her eyes. The Vasquezes were deep in debt. My brother
had to marry Rachel because of Don Pedro’s gambling debts, and s+ll, in the end, everything
was taken by the Americans.
You could have stayed here with your sister. Married a ship captain in tall boots who would
build you a mansion in this city.
“I don’t want a mansion in the city.
“What do you want?” His throat +ghtened as he waited. He hadn’t shared his dreams with
anyone but Maggie, and that had gone so wrong. Jedediah said that with God, all things were
possible. Was it possible to build a happy life with Isabella?
“I want a farm with chickens and as many children as God will give us"
