Overview

Francine Louise Devin hovers on a dark dock in Devon, England. Fifteen and alone she huddles in the night -- she must be on the last ship to France before the snow flies. Frannie does the unthinkable and sneaks aboard The Antonia, becoming a stowaway. She must get to Aunt Matilda, her only living relative.
Almost immediately she is discovered by Captain Caldwell who hides her in his cabin. He leaves Frannie with his lady friend in the harbor town of Brest, with a promise to return and take her to Aunt Matilda.
Times passes and she still hopes, but the Captain's woman hates her and trouble arises. If Captain Caldwell does not come, she will be forced to make her way alone.
Can God provide a way? She believes but too many circumstances nearly undo her plans leaving Frannie to wonder if she will ever feel safe or loved again.

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

I really enjoyed reading this. It was a sweet Christian love story.

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 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.
