In 1916, the Duffys and Macintoshes are entangled in the horrors of World War I. From the deserts of the Middle East to the trenches of Europe, the hand of death is always present. But even those left behind are not safe, for the most dangerous of enemies is not the Germans or the Turks, but someone much closer to home...To Ride the Wind continues the story begun in To Touch the Clouds, following Peter Watt's much-loved characters as they fight to survive one of the most devastating conflicts in history - and each other.
