ABOUT THE BOOK

Ned Cochrane offers a solution: Ned will continue the search for Charlotte while William goes after Julia. William's quest will lead him to a greater understanding of faith and love as he must accept help from sworn enemy and have faith that Julia's life is in God's hands.

This is book three of the series and a great book to end the series. This books has so many humourous scenes. Starts of with Charlotte being kidnapped only the kidnappers have the wrong woman. They were after Julia. El Salvador wanted to kidnap Julia to protect her now he's left her at the mercy of the pirate Shaw.
Both Ned and her brother William are off to rescue here which leaves Julia free to be kidnapped. As Charlotte was a midshipman before she knows about ships she knows her duty is to try to escape. She also knows her way around a ship. I love her strength and determination. I also love the way she and Ned care for each other but at the same time often have different opinions. We also see Julia's strength as she faces Shaw and his brutal tirany. On thing I took out of this book is how sometimes we can believe in something but when something happens to challange the belief we can actually be holding a prejudice we didn't realise we had. This book was a wonderful book to end the series but I really wish we could revisit this series.
