Jago does not want Caseley to travel with him as the there will be many dangers facing them in Egypt, but she is determined to be of use to him, and with her talent for languages and social subtleties, he knows that he needs her. Devastated by the deaths of his children, Jago yearns to be close to his wife again, but he knows that he let her down and he cannot forgive himself for what has happened. Hoping to ease Caseley's suffering, they set off on their journey. But Egypt provides Caseley with so much more than a change of scenery. Thrown into a different culture with so many unique people, Caseley begins to find herself again, and little by little, she starts to find Jago again. But the political danger is lying in wait around every corner. In these turbulent times, the past will never be forgotten, and Caseley and Jago will be forever changed by their loss, but in this beautiful country, maybe they can have a fresh start together,
THE MASTER'S WIFE by Jane Jackson is a beautiful tale of love, loss, and finding the strength to face the future. Caseley and Jago have suffered greatly, and in their grief they moved away from each other, causing further pain. Caseley is my favourite character and her strength and bravery throughout this story took my breath away, and it was a joy to see her come alive as the story developed. Although Jago has made mistakes, I still felt for him, as he worked his way through his own emotions. Through stunning imagery and dialogue, I was transported from Alexandria to Cairo, and to the fascinating nomadic life of the Bedouin people. THE MASTER'S WIFE is the second novel of the 'The Captain's Honour' series, but it can easily be read as a standalone story. THE MASTER'S WIFE by Jane Jackson is a compelling historical story that left me breathless and I urge you all to read it as soon as possible.
In this second book in The Captain's Honour series , The Master's Wife, it is good to meet up again with these well loved characters and to see where life has taken them, and as expected their intertwined lives continue to be filled with challenges which have a devastating effect on both Caseley and Jago,
What I have enjoyed about this series, is the way that the author continually draws you into the story. And with warmth, and fine attention to detail, the characters become real in your imagination and as you become involved in their lives you can't help but become emotionally involved with them. As the story starts to evolve, it becomes noticeable that life is not always very kind to them, nor is life ever predictable, but with fortitude and their challenging love for one another, you start to hope that things may, eventually, turn out well for them.
I thought that this second book was slightly stronger than the first with this story being both sad and dramatic in equal measure. The details of the time spent in Egypt was well researched and what was of particular interest to me was reading about events in history of which I had no knowledge. I thought that the author has done a commendable job of allowing the story to evolve gradually whilst at the same time keeping all the different strands of the story together.
Whilst The Master's Wife sits very comfortably on its own merits as a stand alone story, and yet, as with any book series, I do think it's best to start at the beginning and work through the books in order. However, it is easy to pick up Caseley's and Jago's story and won't detract from the overall enjoyment if you haven't read book one.
Jago Barata is a flawed hero. His wife, Caseley, a perfect heroine who braves the seas to accompany her husband on a voyage with a dangerous mission. Wonderful descriptions of life at sea, in the deserts and cities of Egypt come to life vividly because of the well written descriptions. I was transported to each location. Loss, love, war and adventure. What more could you want? This was one of those books that I didn’t want to end.
Jane Jackson really does deserve to be better known than she is.
