Social classes fall away, however, when a vicious storm breaks up the ship. Pamela and her brother leave Anne to find her way to safety, too concerned with obtaining a place on the longboat to save a mere servant. In the dark and rising water, it is Horatio's hand that reaches down to lend her aid. They eventually climb aboard the make shift raft three surviving crewmen lashed together with rope and found objects, trusting the Hand of Destiny to lead them to safety. They are rescued by a loathsome pirate, and eventually mutiny, finding their way to the island that has haunted Anne's dreams, driving to her quest to a South Seas paradise.
Lisa Cach's deft pen once again creates a marvelously imaginative tale of filled with exotic locations and fanciful characters in THE WILDEST SHORE. Her own wanderlust and love of the unusual lends passion to the tale, allowing her distant experiences to sparkle through. Further, the fast paced adventuresome plot will hold the reader's rapt attention as the characters struggle with a biting monkey, leeches, and headhunters. Rather than the perfect paradise, these details lend the novel a convincing sense of normality amid an extraordinary tale. In addition, the phenomenal growth of the hero and heroine gives the novel a likewise convincing feel as Anne learns independence and as Horatio moves from a shiftless ne'er-do-well to a man of depth and passion. Readers should be aware, if sharing with a young audience, that the sensual exploration between characters is extraordinarily erotic, not because the acts they share are especially unusually, but because they are described in great detail. Very highly recommended.
