    Full Review at What s Beyond Forks Lady Clara is a little spit fire, and her personality meshes well with Captain Flemings understated humorous nature They are faced with challenges along the way, both expected and not expected, but they are good together This story gave you some humor and drama along with the romance It was a pleasant little mix, and all around fun to read.

    Wonderful Story This was a very good story of a girl coming into her maturity on a hopeful of men during war times She ran away from a forced marriage a silly girl with girlish dreams But in her travels aboard the ship she stowed away on she becomes wise in that what you thought you knew never really was and what s important is believing in yourself Good story

    4.5 5.0Vivian Roycroft creates a thrilling love story at sea Full review in April 2013 issue of InD tale Magazine.
