'Like Chaff in the Wind' is the second book in Anna Belfrage's time slip series featuring time traveller Alexandra Lind and her seventeenth century husband, Matthew Graham. Matthew Graham committed the mistake of his life when he cut off his brother's nose. In revenge, Luke Graham has Matthew abducted and transported to the Colony of Virginia, there to be sold as indentured labour - a death sentence more or less. Matthew arrives in Virginia in May of 1661, and any hope he had of finding someone willing to listen to his tale of unlawful abduction is quickly extinguished. He also realises that no one has ever survived the seven years of service - not on the plantation Suffolk Rose. Fortunately, Matthew has a remarkable wife who has no intention of letting her husband die, and so Alex Graham sets off on a perilous journey to bring him home. Alex is plagued by nightmares in which Matthew is reduced to a wheezing wreck by his ordeals. She prays for a miracle to carry her swiftly to his side, but fate has other plans, and what should have been a two month crossing turns into a yearlong adventure from one side of the Atlantic to the other. Will she find him in time? And if she does, will she be capable of paying the price required to buy him free? 'Like Chaff in the Wind' has been awarded a B.R.A.G. Medallion.
