Dark
3 stars By Ibu Guru, Dec 02 2015
Some people like reading about killings, unrelenting trouble, unrepentant sinners, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde types, in which case this book will delight you.  It is very well written and probably has a happy ending - I couldn't read that far as it was too depressing for me. ( I got to 89% read  with skipping the goriest bits.)
Besides star ratings, perhaps books should have other ratings.  This one would be M for mature themes,  graphic violence.

Captivating story
5 stars By Hannah, May 26 2015
Really enjoyed this book from start to end. I love the way the characters grew through it, their relationships and the love story not just between the two main characters but others in the story as well. While there was very little preaching in it, it was difficult to come away from reading it without feeling as if God had been speaking through it. I laughed, I cried, I even felt a little seasick myself at times! So yes, definitely a good book!

Absorbing reading
4 stars By Jacqui, Mar 01 2015
This is the second book of Laurie Alice Eakes in the Midwives series although it can be read on it's own. This story follows the life of Phoebe Lee who learnt how to be a midwife from Tabitha in Book 1. Set on a ship, or rather a brig as the captain keeps correcting Phoebe,  during the war in 1812 it is full of drama and suspense. I loved the way the author has developed the chemistry between Phoebe and the ship's captain. As each of the main characters work through the pain of their individual pasts they help each other to see more of God's character and love.  Laurie Alice Eakes has tastefully woven bible teaching throughout the story making it more than just a light romance. I loved it.
