I wanted to start this book review with my thoughts and prayers to the families who lost well loved family members in the Paris, France attack and the attack at a Baghdad funeral.
“He has outsoared the shadow of our night; envy and calumny and hate and pain, and that unrest which men miscall delight, can touch him not and torture not again; from the contagion of the world’s slow stain, he is secure.” – Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) English poet.
About the book (Goodreads):
The summer James lost his heart to Alice, Alice lost her heart to the sea. The confident and charming daughter of the town’s most accomplished whaling captain, Alice changes James’s life the moment she teaches him how to sail. But when her father needs to fill a spot on his ship, it’s James who is offered the position, and the day he returns from his expedition, he discovers Alice has disappeared.
In this companion novella to Salt & Storm and Drift & Dagger, James must search the world for his heart’s desire, a journey that takes him from the strange and mysterious world of the infamous Roe witch to the deepest and most dangerous reaches of the ocean itself.
I felt bad for James in the story always chasing after the one he loves.
I gave this book 4 stars out of 5 stars.
