Product Description

It's 1813 and all Phoebe Lee wants out of life is to practice midwifery in Loudon County, Virginia. When Belinda, her pregnant sister-in-law, presses Phoebe to accompany her onto a British privateer in order to cross the Atlantic and save her husband from an English prison, Phoebe tries to refuse, then finds herself kidnapped.

Captain Rafe Docherty is a man in search of revenge. His ship is no place for women, but he needs Belinda in order to obtain information about the man who destroyed his family and his life. Between Belinda's whining and Phoebe's hostility, Rafe can't help but wonder if he made the right choice.

When it becomes apparent there is an enemy among them on the ship, the stakes are raised. Will they reach the English shore in time? Can love and forgiveness overcome vengeance?

    This review was written for Heart's Safe Passage: A Novel - eBook.
    I loved Heart's safe Passage! Our heroine, Phoebe was spunky and feisty and the perfect match for our rogue hero Captain Rafe. Both of them harbored secrets from their past, I loved the way the author used God and faith to uncover those secrets and help these characters through the healing process.

    This book also had the action/adventure that I found lacking in the first book.

    I really feel that the author stepped it up in this book and she really found her footing. I'm looking forward to the third book in this series.

    My first book my Laurie Alice Eakes and I was treated to a historical romance filled with adventure, attraction and a continuing battle of revenge versus reconciliation. It kept my attention and I gave up a few needed hours of sleep for it.

    Our heroine tended to be a little preachy; courageous with the odd streak of stupidity, and devoted to those she loved. Captain Rafe was the typical male blend of pride, strength and sincerity.

    Altogether, it was well written, entertaining and enjoyable. I don't think I'd read it again, but I enjoyed it enough to pursue a few more novels by this author. Recommended to those historical romance aficionados who love a good adventure on the high seas.

    This book was even more captivating that the 1st in the series. Intrigue on the high seas with danger and romance.

    This book shows the struggles that even Christians have with faith and forgiveness. Paying for mistakes come to even Christians. It shows that sometimes we hurt the ones we love the most. Gods forgiveness and His protection are shown throughout this book. If you like adventure this series is for you. I can't wait until I read #3 in the series.

    It seems like every time I've turned around over the past year, I've been hearing bits and pieces about this book. Before reading it, I knew several things: the hero was a bad boy on a dangerous mission, the heroine was a headstrong midwife, and they went to sea.

    Well, the story proved to be much more than a bad boy meets a good girl and they live happily ever after. "Sweeping" is the best word I can think of to describe it. It starts off in Virginia, where the heroine heads to sea against her will and due to the scheming of a cruel sister-in-law. From Virginia, Phoebe's whisked away to Bermuda, then England, and even France. Despite the wide scope of geography covered in the novel, Eakes does a masterful job creating mood and setting. I felt like I was personally visiting every country she described and living through the War of 1812. Eakes understanding of the American, British, and Scottish mindsets is nothing short of amazing.

    Furthermore, the characters of Rafe and Phoebe are richly drawn. Neither is perfect, both make mistakes, and both struggle along the path to forgiveness and redemption. They have so much to overcome both physically and emotionally, that at times I wondered if they would ever make it. But they DID make it, and it's a wonderful story readers won't soon forget.
