Simply a MUST READ!. Heart's Safe Passage by Laurie Alice Eakes

You all know me. I don't normally promote books on my blog. Occasionally, however, I will mention a book that I think is worth your time to read.  This is one such book!

Heart's Safe Passage by Laurie Alice Eakes
Publisher: Revell
Series: Midwives

It's 1813 and all Phoebe Lee wants out of life is to practice midwifery in Loudon County, Virginia. When Belinda, her pregnant sister-in-law, presses Phoebe to accompany her onto a British privateer in order to cross the Atlantic and save her husband from an English prison, Phoebe tries to refuse, then finds herself kidnapped.

Captain Rafe Docherty is a man in search of revenge. His ship is no place for women, but he needs Belinda in order to obtain information about the man who destroyed his family and his life. Between Belinda's whining and Phoebe's hostility, Rafe can't help but wonder if he made the right choice.

When it becomes apparent there is an enemy among them on the ship, the stakes are raised. Will they reach the English shore in time? Can love and forgiveness overcome vengeance?

Available at, Amazon, BarnesandNoble.comBooks-A-Million and your local bookstore.
