About the Author

1812: With her guardian planning to remarry, 20-year-old Phoebe Dymond finds she is no longer welcome in his Falmouth home and is soon hustled aboard the packet ship Providence bound for Jamaica and an arranged marriage. A skilled herbalist and midwife, Phoebe clashes with ship's surgeon, Jowan Crossley. But their professional antagonism evolves into mutual respect and a deepening attraction neither dare acknowledge. Following a skirmish with a French privateer, Providence is robbed of crew by a Royal Navy frigate and arrives to find the island facing a slave revolt and Kingston flooded with French refugees. Escorted by Jowan to the plantation of which she will be mistress, terrifying events force Phoebe to relinquish all hope of the happiness she has glimpsed. But her journey is not yet over…

It is 1812 and because her widowed Uncle is remarrying , he is sending Phoebe off to Jamaica
on a packet ship to marry a man she has never met.
She is a skilled healer and midwife having been taught by her much loved and missed Aunt.
The ship's doctor is at first skeptical and then grateful for her skills in helping look after wounded
sailors.
As someone else said, I found the repetition of emotions and feelings a bit trying in the end.
It was very predictable what was going to happen and the "will she/won't she" "does he/doesn't he
like me" etc. made me want to smack their heads together!

The life on board a ship of that time was well researched and believable. This was an easy read
and I downloaded Devil's Prize at the same time, so will read that sometime and review it.

Having downloaded the sample of this book, I absolutely had to buy it. The historical information is obviously well researched and makes the story very credible as well as being interesting, exciting, and keeping you on tenterhooks as to what will go wrong next, and when it will all come right. I read it at breakneck speed, so shall now read it again much more slowly so that I can enjoy the bits that I must have missed in my haste to get to the end. A thoroughly enjoyable book.

This is the first book I've read by this author. The heroine was most likeable and almost believable, although I would query the anatomical knowledge of anyone of that age, with that background at that time. The hero was more endearing than heroic to begin with and only heroic later because of his sense of honour and duty rather than his actions. Absolutely how I want my hero to be! The author kept the story moving apace so the reader has no time to get frustrated with either hero or heroin and has set her story in a period which has been largely glossed over in mainstream history. Definitely a good holiday read. Personally found it less than ideal for commuting as each chapter draws you to the next and makes you want to read on.

I love historical novels and especially books involving 'journeys', so this seemed to fit the bill!
I've never read anything by Jane Jackson before but I found her style of writing good with nice flow and easy to read. Detail and research seemed to be done well and I enjoyed the storyline of the in depth details of 'the voyage'.
I thought it seemed rushed at the end, I would have enjoyed more of the encounters of life ashore, and the prospects of what life held, which after all was the reason for the voyage.
The finale, although it became obvious what the out come would be, was lacking in emotion and the sincerity of the rest of the book which was a little disappointing!
Although I can see the possibility of a sequel from the way it was left..........

The novel contains so much information about the period that it is totally believable. That makes it easy for the reader to follow the characters through the various events. I particularly liked the passage to Jamaica and it made me wonder if the author had experienced anything similar herself, it was so realistic. The characters seemed vivid and real as I read the story, and I found myself urging them on to solve their difficulties. Very recommendable.
