I am a history buff (I was a history major, actually), and I have a thing for sailboats. Ships, barques, brigs, schooners, ketches, cutters, sloops, and yawls, I love 'em all.

This was almost a five star book. What stopped it short was all of the boat jargon and the ending.However, this is very close to a five star book because of the amazing character development and plot.

I found this to be an interesting read. I enjoyed it but did not find it to be a page-turner. I had no problems putting the book down and coming back to it later. It wasn’t until the last 25% of the book that I found myself hesitant to put it down and kept reading no matter what else was going on a...
