YA The story of the life and loves of Alexandria Thaine Falconer, begun in Wild Swan (Bantam, 1984), continues in this moving historical romance. Alexandria's world revolves around her beloved husband, her children and her horse farm in Maryland. Thoroughbred horse breeding and racing, carried on successfully after the death of her first husband, are important factors in Alex' life. The five children grow up, leave home to build their own lives and return to Wild Swan to share success, happiness and tragedy with their parents. Opposed to slavery, Alex and Rane run their farm and shipping business with free employees but nevertheless are touched by the political upheaval preceding the Civil War. The war brings hardships, tragedy and divided loyalities but the family is held together by a strong and caring Alex. Readers of family sagas, historic fiction and adult romance will find their preferences all in one very readable book. Carol P. Clark, Fairfax County Public Schools, Springfield, Va.
