There are good descriptions of wrecking of ships, the plunder of them by starving locals,
the clever ways Devlin fought the sea and escaped from the "customs" men in their boats.
He is betrayed twice and finally there is a terrific storm which threatens the homes, boats and
lives of the whole village.
I enjoyed the book and would have given it 4 stars instead of 3.5, except for three things.
I felt there was too much repetition of how Tamara felt about Devlin, and about how her mother

These niggles aside, I would recommend the book and would read another by this author.
