Book Review: Hearts Safe Passage
All Phoebe Lee wants out of life is to practice midwifery in Loudon County, Virginia. But when she refuses to accompany her pregnant sister-in-law to help save her husband from an English prison during the War of 1812, Phoebe finds herself pressed aboard a British privateer.
Captain Rafe Docherty promises to get Phoebe's brother-in-law out of prison in exchange for information Rafe needs to exact revenge on the man who destroyed his family. As he realizes his attraction to Phoebe, she determines to get ashore before her patient goes into labor--and before her own heart is in danger. But an enemy in their midst threatens to end their plans--and their very lives.
ABOUT THE BOOK
This was an eventful read, it's amazing how much adventure there is to be had while on a ship in the high seas, although 'ship' is not what you want to call it when around Captain Doherty!
A pregnant lady going to rescue her husband, lies, attempted murder and of course love all fill the pages of this book. There's enough action to keep your interest until the very last page. This was a fun read, I think you'll enjoy it.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing.
