    I Love this Book

    I had this book for years and read it every two months or so. I just loved it. I lost my copy about 3 years ago and am now really wishing the had an ebook format so I could use it. Hopefully soon. A Definite keeper

    Not that good

    This book was not really interesting. It had the potential to be so much better if there was more to it. It did not have enough detail. The heroine in the story was not very interesting either. This story definetly was lacking.

    A Definite Keeper

    Rachel Best is always watching the sea near Truro, along the Atlantic Coast, searching for her husband lost at sea months before. When a whaleboat washes ashore with a man lying inside, Rachel is almost afraid to hope that the man is Richard, her husband found alive. Unfortunately, the man is Captain Jared Mitchell, sea captain of a whaling vessel who asked to be set adrift from his ship and drank himself into oblivion. <br><br> Refusing to believe in Richard¿s death, Rachel doesn¿t welcome the attraction that she feels for Jared, a big gruff, hairy man so unlike her blonde husband. As Jared recovers in her parents¿ cabin, he loses his heart to Belle, Rachel¿s precocious five-year-old daughter. Though incensed that Jared rents her husband¿s cabin from her family, Rachel can no longer deny her attraction to the handsome captain who has opened his heart to her daughter. Their relationship would be such a sure thing if only Rachel could let go of Richard. Will she be able to let go of the past before it is too late? <br><br> Full of intense emotion and love scenes set among the tempestuous background of the sea, Ms. Goodger¿s captivating writing is at its best. And the unanswered questions behind Richard¿s death add a pleasing element of mystery to this tale. And for those romance readers, who devour romantic tension, prepare for a literal feast as this read thrives on romantic adversity. Though the tension in this read proves to hold the reader¿s interest, the only drawback is that Rachel and Jared¿s constantly thinking that the other does not love them gets a little overcooked. However, this is definitely a read to be savored again and again-a keeper.

    insightful American romance

    In the days of the thriving whaling industry, the residents of Truro, Massachusetts survive by recovering cargo from the shipwrecks near their Cape Cod community. Rachel Best and her husband Richard have lived in Truro all their lives. He knows the nearby Atlantic Ocean as well as anyone, but when he disappears at sea, everyone else concludes he died. Rachel refuses to believe her spouse is dead so every morning regardless of the weather she walks to the ocean expecting Richard to return. <P> Sea Captain Jared Mitchell has wanted to die ever since he blamed himself for the accidental deaths of his wife and daughter. Unable to cope, he tries a strange suicide by commanding his whaling crew maroon him in the sea. The ocean fails to listen to his plea; so on a cold autumn day, Rachel finds the whaleboat containing the half-dead Jared. She and her family nurse Jared back to health. Jared falls in love with Rachel who begins to reciprocate, but she feels guilty because she still believes Richard is coming home. <P>GIFTS FROM THE SEA is an insightful American romance that is excellent when it concentrates on a second chance at love though closure from the previous relationship has not occurred. When the novel meanders into unnecessary subplots, it loses some of its wallop. Jared is a compassionate hero while Rachel is more difficult to accept because her marriage was not a happy one so why one wonders why she loyally clings to a memory. Still when Jane Goodger keeps the love story of the lead couple front and center, readers receive a wonderful historical romance. <P>Harriet Klausner
