Three years ago, Captain Brogan Talvis's late wife abandoned their son, leaving no clue as to the boy's whereabouts. After searching relentlessly, Brogan discovers his son was adopted by a New England shipbuilder. And the man's daughter, Lorena Huntley, acts as loving guardian to the child.
Lorena, who hides a dark truth, finds herself falling for the handsome captain and ex-privateer who's come to secure ownership of one of her father's ships. She's unaware of Brogan's own secret when another's deceit has her sailing toward Europe against her will.
Haunted by thoughts of Lorena in peril, Brogan is compelled to choose between the boy he longs for and the woman who has captured his heart.
If you're looking for a story about second chances, read this book. There is suspense right from the beginning with the reader becoming drawn to each character as they are developed. I found this book had a great forgivness undertone and may make you think about what things you need to let go of in your own heart.
There are many dark secrets that are revealed as the story goes on and it keeps the reader interested. I found I kept skipping over pages to find out what happens which is not good, cause then I missed something and had to go back and reread, lol.
I am not a big fan of war time books, but this was a nice read. Would definitely reccomend.
