Our episode starts with RyAnne being discovered on the ship and ends with having to make a decision wether to continue the journey or not. “Yet, if she joined him on this journey, she must go with her heart in the right place.” This episode mostly dealt with an incident concerning a slave and the issue of the value of the life of a slave. It was interesting to see a few new details on how the slaves were dealt with and the advantage a slave owner would take because of his ownership. I got a kick out of the captain’s ship being called The Wasp and his steamboat is The Bee. Knowing that the author was raised in Africa gave just a little different flavor to the story for me. Though I will probably never visit the continent, she made me feel is if I was there. “Saving you is beginning to be a full-time occupation.”

I couldn’t wait to find out what came next for RyAnne and Captain Trent Dawson. Lay Down Your Heart is the second in the Sonnets of the Spice Isle series with a trek into East Africa. Some favorite scenes: “Up!” he shouted. “Pull us up! Hang on!” He clutched her tighter with his supporting arm, but she was taking no chances at slipping back into the water with a shark below! As the rope began a rapid ascent, she clamped both arms about his neck and her legs around his middle, squeezed her eyes shut, and hung on for dear life. “a young baby, not more than eighteen months, peering at her around one of the huts. The combination of black hair twisted into tiny braids that poked from her head in all manner of directions, round pinchable cheeks, and sparkling eyes drew RyAnne a step nearer.” And great lines like: “fidgeting like a lad with a lizard in his trousers” “the moonlight spilling like a milky gloss over the obsidian tabletop of the water” “She’d never been more relieved to hear the captain’s voice! He tore into the water beside her with a feral yell.” “She played sorrow for a world gone so terribly, terribly mad. And with a sigh of release, she let the last note linger long as she slowly pulled the bow along the final refrain.” There are dangerous people and critters. RyAnne has shooting lessons. Their journey deeper into the unknown requires a lot of change. Enjoy!
