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..

It was a pretty good book, although Charlotte made me bang my head against the bedroom wall three or four times at the beginning. She's so stupid!! Take a hint, girl! She smartens up after a while though. However, I do think that, given her circumstances, she made a good choice at the end. It's probably what I would have done.
