"This story takes us from England to China and back!"
This story takes us from London, England to China and back.
While this is an historical romance, a bit of a mystery is
thrown in for good measure.
Rebecca Sanderson finds out that her parents have
ultimately betrayed her by trying to force her to marry a
man not of her choosing. It's not that Rebecca doesn't want
to get married. It is just that she wants to do the
choosing herself. She decides to run away but her intended
bridegroom Roger sees her and gives chase. She jumps into a
hack but finds it occupied by a gentleman, Jonathan Dillon.
She tells him her situation and Jonathan convinces her that
she should go home. He escorts her home and makes sure she
gets there safely.
Rebecca's parents decide to send Rebecca to her uncle in
China as punishment and to teach her that she must behave
her future husband and her parents. When Rebecca gets on
the ship, she has an idea that she will run away at one of
the ports of call. What she doesn't know is that she will
meet Jonathan again as he is the Captain of the ship. She
also has no way of knowing that this will be the adventure
of her life!
This story had me hooked. I felt as if I had to read
chapter after chapter to see how this most intriguing book
would end. Rebecca was a strong willed young woman who knew
just want she wanted. She just had a little problem
figuring out how to go about getting it. Jonathan was
equally as stubborn but he knew that he wanted Rebecca and
he would do all in his power to see that she felt the same
way. For fans of historical romance with a mysterious twist
to it, this is one to relish!
