Overview

Dr. Julia Blanchard, a marine archaeologist, and her team of divers have spent almost eighteen months excavating the remains of a ship found a few miles off the coast of Georgia. Although they learn quite a bit about the nineteenth century sailing vessel, they have found nothing that would reveal the identity of the ship they have nicknamed "The Georgia Peach."

Consumed by the excavation of the mysterious ship, Julia's relationship with her partner, Amy, has deteriorated. When she forgets Amy's birthday and finds her celebrating in the arms of another woman, Julia returns alone to the Peach site. Caught in a violent storm, she finds herself separated from her boat and adrift on the vast Atlantic Ocean.

Her rescue at sea leads her on an unexpected journey into the true identity of the Peach and the captain and crew who called it their home. Her travels take her to the island of Martinique, the eastern Caribbean islands, the Louisiana German Coast and New Orleans at the close of the War of 1812.

How had the Peach come to rest in the waters off the Georgia coast? What had become of her alluring and enigmatic captain, Simone Moreau? Can love conquer everything, even time? On a voyage that lifts her spirits and eventually breaks her heart, Julia discovers the identity of the ship she had been excavating and the fate of its crew. Along the way she also discovers the true meaning of love which can be as boundless and unpredictable as the ocean itself.

The Sea Hawk is the story of a woman who can't find happiness until she's catapulted by an accident into the past. That sets up the friction in the story. How does she translate her lover in the past into her present? Dr. Julia Blanchard is a marine archaeologist working on a shipwreck off the Georgia coast that her team has nicknamed "The Georgia Peach." Her absorption with working on the ship destroys her relationship with her lover Amy and when they break up, Julia breaks the rules of scuba diving and visits the ship alone. While she is below the sea, her ship is stolen and she's left alone to float in the Atlantic Ocean. When Julia is rescued by a sailing ship, she discovers it is the ship she's been studying only its name is Le Faucon and it has a female captain, Simone Moreau. As Julia tries to understand what has happened to her and take advantage of this unusual opportunity to learn about the ship, she participates in adventures around the Caribbean islands and in events of the War of 1812. She also finds herself falling in love with Simone. Eventually, Julia has to face the fact that, if she finds her way back to her own time, friends and family, it will mean sacrificing the true love of her life. Paranormal fiction requires the reader to suspend her sense of disbelief, especially when one character is sent back through time. The Sea Hawk isn't the first book to do this, but at least Adcock follows it up by trying to keep the historic details in place. The book is adventurous, contains the requisite romance and teaches information about the period. It moves quickly and holds the reader's attention. Anyone looking for a way to pass a few hours of entertainment should find The Sea Hawk more than suitable.

Can love transcend space and time? Do we live multiple lives? The Sea Hawk is beautifully bittersweet. I was hoping for a diffrent ending, but was not disappointed with the one presented. I look forward to adding more of Brenda Adcock's titles to my library.
