A serialized historical Christian romance.
Rovuma River, Headed Inland, Mid-1866
Resigned to the fact that Papa has made up his mind and will not return to Zanzibar, RyAnne determines to make the best of it. She won’t leave her papa to die alone. But with the arduous journey they face, Papa might not even make it a few days down the trail, much less the weeks it will take to reach the village where he’s determined to build his mission station. What will she do if he passes away before they arrive? Recently she’s seen a softer side to Captain Dawson, but can she trust the man to get her home?
The closer Trent Dawson comes to proving the identity of the slave runners, the more he fears for the Hunters’ lives. He can’t help but admire RyAnne’s determination to do right by her father. But he can’t let any of that admiration show, because the men he’s after won’t hesitate to protect their own hides—and that means danger to anyone close to Trent. He just needs to get his charges safely to the village, and then he can get on with his business. The problem is…the little lioness, RyAnne Hunter, just might have sunk her claws deeper into his heart than he realized.
A thrilling historical romance from the time of missionary explorer David Livingstone.

Episode 3 was amazing. In this episode we get to do a little traveling by foot with RyAnne and her father who wants to walk, no be carried, only to realize the dangers all around. We see the destruction brought to some villages. Heartache. We have some humor and romance in a tree. "He'd been fooling himself into thinking otherwise, but now it was quite clear. The little lioness had firmly sunk her teeth into his heart." Looking forward to episode 4.
Made Perfect in Weakness is the third installment in the Sonnets of the Spice Isle Series. The story continues as they move further into the African Jungle and Trent moves further toward catching the slave traders. RyAnne settles it in her mind that her father cannot be convinced to go back home, so she decides to help him in his mission. It is so nice to watch as she matures and ministers to the natives along with her father. The developing relationship between Trent and RyAnne is just the right touch of romance in this story. This is a continuing series that you are sure to enjoy and I recommend getting the entire set of books. This book was given to me by the Author in exchange for my honest review which I have given. All views stated above are my own.
The relationship between Trent and RyAnne grows more tender as her genius for trouble continues along the "jaunt into the heart of the continent." The slave raiders ahead of them up river continue to reek havoc. RyAnne's father's health is deteriorating, but he is undeterred in his goal to reach Lake Nyassa. Lynnette Bonner's portrayal of African villages make the reader feel like they are on the trek into the interior through the tall grasses, that they smell the smoke from the fires, look around as "the mosquitoes come out in droves" and listen to the waves whispering the beach. Captain Trent continues to be antsy wanting to trail the raiders straight to their leader, his secret commission. But, first he must settle the party into the coastal village. Along the way nibbling at RyAnne's secret which she alluded to during their tryst under the mango tree.
