Ms. Campisi is going to go far in the literary world. I just wish her stories went on forever.
Captain Noah Sandleton confronts the ne'er do well pick pocket only to discover a beautiful woman who claims that she is seeking a particular captain to obtain passage to America. mily St. Simon doesn't want to marry; she wants to relinquish her social life and join Ian, her brother, in America. Ian finally agrees on one condition--she must prove she could stand up to the rigors of the passage to America and her new life there. The proof he demands is that she must serve as a maid, in his household, for three weeks. Enchanting and and spellbinding, though a little confusing in spots, this 4 ½ read was delightful.
