This book is the ultimate version of "You can't judge a book by its cover" because you can't judge this book or any of its characters by their "covers". Is Charlotte only the proper young lady she appears to be? Is Captain Jaggery really a gentleman? What about Zachariah, the cook? All will surprise you and bring you thrills on the high seas!

I have read this two times now. I thought maybe after further understanding it, it wouldn't be as boring. But, it just "bleh". Honestly it's boring, and just when you think it will become exciting it ends up really being nothing.

A sea story in the same vein as the excellent Jacky Faber series, but rather more serious. I liked the ending, even if the heroine potentially exchanged one form of bondage for another..
