    Historically Romantic

    The story starts with Josiah wondering why he bought Langley's Choice, and why he is engaged to marry the neighbor's eldest daughter, Caroline. He is a gentleman from England. This wild country is very far from family and upbringing, and his wife-to-be has made such an inappropriate choice for her state in life that if she survives, is she a worthy candidate for marriage? The growth of these characters leaves you with hope. The accurately historical background is eyeopening. I have bought this book for friends.

    Delightful historical romance!

    It's 1713, and Caroline Carter is bored with life on her father's secluded tobacco plantation. Determined to experience a touch of life before she marries her sedate fiance, Josiah Throckmorton, she disguises herself as a boy and sneaks in to a local inn to see 'pirate treasures' with a friend. She awakens on a privateer ship, whose captain is intent on heading south to capture pirates. When Josiah and her brother learn of her kidnapping, they follow by ship, determined to rescue her. They finally locate her in Charles Town in the company of the privateer ship's captain but, when Caroline sees them, she flees. It takes another 'kidnapping' to get the feisty Caroline headed home by ship, in the company of her brother and fiance -- the latter of whom now has second thoughts about his future bride. Then, during a storm, Caroline's brother falls overboard and dies. Caroline now truly regrets her past actions. Her foolishness has caused her brother's death. Worse, neighbors whispers about her respectability, then her fiance releases her from their previous engagement. When she learns that her father is heavily in debt, Caroline becomes determined to do whatever it takes to help the family. And Josiah begins to realize that Caroline isn't quite as rash as he thought. Wonderful portrait of life in the early Colonies and delightful characters make this a keeper!
