Desperate to reach Jamaica and her secret fiance, Charlotte Ransome disguises herself as a midshipman on a convoy led by her brother, Captain William Ransome. When her identity is discovered, Charlotte begs William's wife, Julia, not to tell her brother. But will this secret create insurmountable waves for the newlyweds?
Kay Dacuss book, Ransomes Crossing, is a delightful story about adventure, rocky pasts, forbidden romance, learning to trust, and finding love in unexpected places. Charlotte Ransome, the main character, takes to the sea disguised as a midshipman so that she can pursue her fiancé. Her actions result in her learning some very hard lessons and putting herself, as well as others, in dangerous and compromising situations.
This authors strengths lie in her ability to draw the reader into the action and feel what the character is feeling. She creates relationships among her characters that come alive in the mind of the reader. Despite this, a certain depth is lacking in the overall story, the plot, and how easily the reader can relate to the various characters actions. Understandably, reading a trilogy out of order is going to have its challenges, but as a reader innocent of the back-story, the transitions are as choppy as the ocean in the midst of the books storm. Not enough summary information was provided for new readers. Sadly, there was not one particularly memorable scene that held a lasting impression.
While Charlotte has a demure personality and all the graces that are expected of a lady, she also has a taste for adventure and sailing. One of her faults that gets her into trouble is her steadfast commitment to a plan once it has entered her head, despite its implications. Charlotte relates well to her peers and those in authority over her. She is friendly, willing to help others, and to take drastic measures when necessary.
Regardless of any glitches in the book itself, I thoroughly enjoyed this story and even came away from it with some new insights. I felt that the book effectively spoke about trusting God with our uncertainty and fears, and that it portrayed the message of Matthew 11:28-30 throughout. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for light entertainment. Rachel Vachon, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
