Summary

Cornwall: 1793. Rose Pengelly's father has been ruined - he has lost his boat yard and his fortune, plunging Rose and her mother into poverty and debt. There appears to be only one way out of their terrible circumstances; for Rose to marry Mr Tregellas, a powerful timber merchant and the man Rose believes is responsible for her father's downfall. He has made his terms clear; either she marries him or faces homelessness and destitution. Desperate, Rose sets out to find evidence of Mr Tregellas's wrongdoing. In her search, she encounters a mysterious young sailor called Jim, who refuses to disclose his identity. He may help her restore her fortune and her good name, but does he ever tell her the truth?

Rollicking period piece with a very good narrator, recommended

The narrator of this book is a really good actor and reads brilliantly. Great voices for a pretty large cast of characters. Bravo! The book is well written and I loved the period detail and the location detail too. It was an absorbing read and I certainly wanted to see how it all ended. It was very ‘plotty’ in that a lot happens, but for me personally I could have done with the romance taking a larger part and the events being toned down; but that’s just personal preference and not to say anything in terms of plotting was done badly - it wasn’t.

A good story, but...

The story is lovely, but I really struggled with the language at times.
I thought it would be a nice book to listen as a Christian, but I do not recommend it to listen to this book if you are. A shame, because many words could be altered, so it's nicer to listen to

The narrator'svoice is very good. All the voices she's giving the different characters is so lovely!
