The long-awaited sequel to on of the most cherished love stories of our time!
A sweeping tale of passion, romance and adventure, Kathleen E. Woodiwiss' groundbreaking classic The Flame and the Flower remains as beloved today as when it first appeared in print. Now, at long last, the author whose name has become synonomous with top-quality romantic historical fiction continues the story that has enchanged the world for decades.

Cerynise Kendall has been left destitute and in dire need following the death of her doting patron and protectress. She must now turn to a childhood companion for assistance - the dashing sea captain Beauregard Birmingham - and beg him to provide her with passage to the Carolinas....

The first romance book I ever read was by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss, and it's fun to read another of hers, many years later. The language is a bit stilted, but that's part of the fun.
