Having seen both his sisters Grace and Helen happily married, Christopher Thatcher is free to pursue his dream of life in America. With adventure in his heart and mind, he boards one of the first steamships set to cross the Atlantic in the record breaking time of only twenty-five days. Within the first two of those, his resolve—to avoid women and the complications they often bring to a man’s life—falters when he meets Marsali Abbott, a young woman with a past even more troubling than his own.

Whether from years of habit protecting his sisters, or simply because he feels drawn to Marsali, Christopher chooses to help her and becomes her friend. As the truth about what awaits Marsali in America becomes evident, he is faced with a more difficult choice, one that will impact their lives far beyond four weeks together at sea.

    I enjoyed this historical romance that focuses on Christopher, the brother we met in the two earlier stories (although I don’t think it’s necessary to have read those first). Christopher wants to begin a new adventure in America, so he takes passage on one of the first steamships where he meets the interesting captain and a handful of passengers, including, of course, our lovely heroine who has also had a very difficult life. I loved all the characters, especially Christopher and Marsali, and I enjoyed watching their relationship develop. I loved both of their personalities and the way they overcame the hardships in their lives and didn’t let those experiences make them bitter.
    I wondered early on what direction the author would take the story once the ship arrived in America, and it turned out to be not at all what I was expecting! There was tragedy and betrayal and miscommunication and a character or two I wanted to yell at. But the ending was very sweet and satisfying – a great conclusion to this series!
