    1. Zya, an exotic woman of unknown origins and part of a gypsy caravan, and Davis, a Confederate soldier tasked with heading up a brigade of “hit and run” tactical soldiers against the B&O Federal railroad, meet under conditions of war and Zya decides to join Davis’s brigade as a scout who knows the area well and who wants to escape the leader of the gypsy caravan. Ms. Hughes’ knowledge of the Civil War and the type of war waged by the Confederacy against the Federals’ greater odds is [...]

    2. Great Civil War Adventure!The story begins in 1853 in West Virginia as we meet Zya Lazar, a woman of Cherokee, Portuguese and African blood (a “Melungeon”—a person of tri-racial heritage) who was orphaned as a young child and raised by Romani gypsies. Her gypsy father is a kind man but her gypsy uncle is ruthless, cruel and uses her as well as his own sons for his raids that bring terror to the countryside. Zya, trained up to be a part of the raids, marries one of her uncle’s sons when s [...]

    3. Civil War AdventureThis book was based on a headstrong, clever, pistol shooting, adventure seeking woman. Zya had many hardships throughout her life including abduction from her original family and taken by Romani Gypsies at the age of 5. She learned so many hard lessons and was hardened from the people who she found she could not trust. This book is just packed with action and a little romance. Different than any book I've read so far. I enjoyed the different relationships she encountered as sh [...]

    4. Vagabond WindWow! What a story,so well written in so many ways. I just could not put this book down. When I first started this story I almost thought I do not think I am going to like this story and almost quit reading and then before I knew it I was hooked and did not put it down. It was exciting adventurous and a beautifully well written history of our civil war. I could go on and on. Yes highly recommended.

    5. Although I am not normally a fan of novels in the time frame of the civil war, Amanda has made this a good read. I put off reading this one because of that. But as Ms. Hughes has done with her past novels, she has written such a perfect story that the factors of war don't matter much. Thanks for another fabulous adventure. looking forward the the house of five fortunes.

    6. Action-packed This is the second book I have read by this author. Both are well worth reading but very different stories with satisfying endings but not simply happily ever after. I would highly recommend this book.

    7. Vagabond Wind will stick with me forever! The depth of the story and of Amanda Hughes' writing is uncanny. The characters are wonderfully colorful and I actually miss them now that I've finished the book. I would give it 10 stars if I could! Highly recommended! This is a MUST READ!!!!!!!

    8. Zya spent almost her whole life with Romani gypsies, traveling with them all over the new state of West Virginia before the Civil War. Married at a young age, life seemed grand until her husband and father were killed. Falling in with a group of Confederate Rangers, she helped guide them through the wilderness as they worked to thwart the Yankees at every turn through sneak attacks. Read the rest of the review on my blog: shouldireaditornot.wordpress.

    9. Good reading5 Stars because of the intensity of the historical novel. It moved quickly through a terrible time in our history and gave graphic pictures of how terrible the civil war was. Amanda Hughes is an excellent writer.

    10. Zya is loved by her father, but is forced to wed his brother's son at 15 years old. She is beautiful, wild, impulsive and easy to love. After the death and murder of her husband and father, disturbing matters are revealed; causing Zya to leave the life she knew.She winds up working with Confederate soldiers of a different breed under Captain Davis Wyndham. This is when the adventure and romance begins anew! Interesting take on the Civil War. Love the way the co!orful irregulars are introduced an [...]

    11. All romance and adventure but fun. this is set in Virginia during the civil war. The girl kidnapped by the gypsies is making her way as a trapper and hermit until she meets the confederate officer gathering a band of raiders.
