Rafe turned even a summer in Digby Head, Maine, into sheer misery. No colas, no spicy foods, no late hrs & no work. Worst of all, when Destiny protested, Rafe retorted w/ "doctor's orders." Life would have been easier w/ Captain bligh. Was it any wonder she'd jumped ship last time, ending their married life?
Equality wasn't the issue--it never had been. But years at sea had taught Rafe that you never tried to outrace a storm. You headed into it--even when one heck of a summer squall was headed your way.
