    Wonderful

    Young Frannie is in a desprate fix to stowaway onto a ship bound for France to get to the only living relative she has left. The captin of the ship will become her kinsman redeemer much like Boaz and Ruth in the bible story.

    This is a wonderful story of love and forgivness.
    Highly recommend

    Light, unmemorable read

    As the book suggests, this is a story about a young girl who stows away on a ship and eventually finds love. You can almost tell the whole story by the title and the book cover illustration. I found it a way to pass the time and some parts were interesting but it lacked depth and character development. If you want a light story without offensive language or the necessity for the reader to get overly involved, you might like this. It isn't a bad book; just lacking something. There are enough references to God to qualify it as Christian Fiction. I think young teen girls might enjoy this.

    There were several things I liked about this book and I felt it

    There were several things I liked about this book and I felt it started off much better than it finished.  The loneliness of t the main character was very well portrayed and drew you into the story. However, as the story went on, the writing began to falter.  A good story line gave way to contrived writing. I was thinking it reminded me one of those drinking games, "You have to take a drink every time the author uses the word 'thus'!"  It is a nice, easy read that is not horrible but it falls short of good writing, overall.  By the way, dear author, when writing period books, try to remember where you are.  I believe this story takes place somewhere near  or in France (you don't ever really say), but you use dollars for the currency and you have them shooting a turkey and serving it for Thanksgiving, an American holiday.Overall, it's an okay book.
