What a wonderful book! The story line was engrossing and the character development was so thorough, I understood the two main characters perfectly. I am not very interested in historical ships, but Essex has meticulously researched sailing vessels of the time and that detail particularly enhanced this tale. Often writers become caught up in historical information to the extent they detract from the book. NOT so in this instance. The reader becomes engrossed in every aspect of the ship because both the hero and heroine are intensely a part of it. A beautiful love story between two strong characters. Well worth your read time.

I loved it! What great characters Col and Sally are! The adventures at sea were so thrilling that it took me 3 tries to read the book from cover to cover-only because I kept skipping ahead in the exciting parts just to see what would happen next.
It's also the most believable tale involving a female disguised as a man that I've ever read. Although I know nothing about sailing, the descriptions of life aboard a British navy ship seemed authentic, and blended in with the story so well that I was never bored.
All that and a great romance too, with delicious love scenes.
