This was an interesting journey book. When this on-the-shelf spinster meets a strange missionary visiting England, she could hardly know that the adventure of a lifetime was around the corner. All the things that make her an unmarriagable Bluestocking in her hometown, make her a desirable, exciting woman in his eyes, and in his heart, on the long sea journey to China. Adventure and romance within these pages. This romance novel is very appropriate for teenagers and Christian women who do not enjoy books with explicit sex or offensive language.
