As Katie and Collin MacDonald prepare to embark on the most perilous journey of their lives—crossing the Atlantic to Nova Scotia—an ocean away Collin’s brother Ian is seeing the coast of Virginia for the first time.
After a voyage that would have cost Ian his life, except for the courage and timely aid of Elizabeth Campbell, Ian plans to risk the same returning to Scotland as soon as possible, even if that means stowing away. But as Eliza and Ian form an unlikely friendship, Ian realizes he cannot simply abandon Eliza and their fellow passengers to the cruel fates that await them. At the risk of his own freedom, he decides he must do what he can to help.
After a narrow escape in London, Katie and Collin cross the ocean swiftly, with the smaller ship Cleopatra making good time until she encounters a fierce storm near Sable Island. The tempest threatens both the ship and Katie’s fragile health, and their arrival in Halifax brings little relief, but further proof that the dangers of this new continent will equal or surpass the old.
What a great conclusion to the series!! Katie and Collin are such wonderful, deep characters. I have loved going on this journey with them. Their challenges and struggles continue in this book, as does their romance and strong love for each other. That’s not the only romance in this book, though. I loved getting to read Ian’s story and know him on a deeper level. Both storylines were full of action, and collided in a great climax. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough!
This is the third and final book in a series that should definitely be read in order. It’s a little hard to say goodbye to these characters, but I loved seeing them finally get a true happy ending.
I received a complimentary copy of the book, which I voluntarily reviewed. I have given my honest opinion.
