Mia has a very Emma-like quality about her. She wants to put everyone into a matchmade pair, but when she realizes who she wants to be her other half, it is a little too late as she pushed him away into a pair of his own.

Through this story you get entertainment and romance. There is mystery and suspense. There is a devotion and lesson to be learned. There are matters that affect your own life that you can gain from experiencing the lives of these characters. I have yet to come across a book by Tracie Peterson, except one, that I have not loved and this is no exception. It's great, not necessarily amazing, hence the four stars, but it's great.

I found this novel a complete waste of time. The romance in the story was so little that I'm surprised it's called a romance novel. It felt extremely preachy in terms of helping those less fortunate as well as religious. Although I think both those things quite worthy but I don't necessarily want to read a whole novel about it.

    Good read

    It was a good read. Just took me long to read it. The story could of been shorter and to the point but i can see that the author wanted mystery and excitement. So overall it was good.

    Really enjoyed this

    I enjoyed this because it gave a look at an era that we don't consider much any more. I admired Mia's pluck and tenacity. The characters were pretty well drawn and the death of Garrett's father didn't become maudlin.
    It was a good read that didn't require a lot of soul-searching, but could be put down and picked up without losing train of thought. It did make one realize, though, what women have gone through to reach the independence most enjoy today.
    Another series that I look forward to pursuing.

    Faith, duty and understanding

    This book is a good mix of faith, duty and understanding. Mia is a strong famale character who has this passion for helping the seafarer's families at a detriment to herself. Garrett is acwonderful man who only wants to protect his best friend and hopeful future wife. Faith is a constant undercurrent throughout the book. Very nicely written.
