Great adventure / love story. Good book. I enjoyed it very much.
This was a very good book that was hard to put down. The story begins with a young wife in the late 1800's who is married to a Sea Captain that is away for very long stretches of time. She desperately wants to go with him when he sails and he is dead set against it. Circumstances happen that force him to change his mind and bring his wife and young daughter with him on his journeys. And so the adventure begins. The story takes you through several years of their experiences, some good but many bad. This story is high on adventure with a underlying love story that deals with this couple's loving but difficult relationship. I thought the author did a wonderful job with this book. She was able to convey the atmosphere on ship as well as the essence of the places they visited without using long and detailed descriptive passages and there was always an element of suspense throughout the entire story. The ending was not at all predictable, as I was unsure of it right up to the last chapter. My only critisism was that I thought the story got a bit rushed near the end when the last leg of their journey takes them to Hong Kong.I felt the author was trying to wrap things up quickly and I resented being rushed. Maybe that's just because I didn't want it to end. It was a great story
