Sapphire And Goldby Penny Rader
In 1752 Philadelphia, Alexandra Whittaker overhears the man who has raised her-and intends to marry her-admit to kidnapping her. She then uncovers a locket containing a portrait of herself as a child. Confused and frightened, she flees, heading for Williamsburg, Virginia, the place inscribed on the back of the locket. On her way out of Philadelphia, she stumbles across a bear and ends up in the river.
Sea Captain Derek Tremaine is guilt-ridden over the disappearance of a small girl left in his care as a youth. Always searching for her, he hears she may be alive and travels to Philadelphia where he discovers an unconscious young woman in the river. She bears a strong resemblance to the mother of the missing girl who has haunted his dreams. He is drawn to assist and protect her as she sails with him to Williamsburg in her hunt for answers about her life. But will the truth give them peace and allow their growing love for one another to blossom? Or will it drive them apart?

Kidnapped as a young child, Alexandra Whittaker has no memory of her former family. She had believed she was abandoned and taken in by the Taylor family, Henry, Polly and Henry's brother Bartholomew. Bartholomew did not find her abandoned but he kidnapped. Overhearing a conversation between the brothers, she learns the truth. Bartholomew plans for them to be married. She finds some papers and a locket as she plans her escape. They all point her to Williamsburg, VA. She encounters a bear and falls in some water on her way home. Sea Captain Derek Tremaine has never stopped searching for her. As Alexandra journeys home, Bartholomew searches for her determined to get her back. The story line was well written , the characters all complimented each other. I enjoyed reading Sapphire and Gold.
