I love reading books about people who work the land for a living -- particularly those who have forsaken city life for a "taste of the way life used to be." I'm not sure why I have the fascination as I'm pretty sure this type of life wouldn't suit me at all! Yes, I love raising my chickens, but my basil plants are already dead this year due to lack of attention, and I don't even pretend to plant a garden any more.

This book is an enjoyable little romp through farm life, with quite a bit of depth and honesty about what happens in a relationship when one person's life-long dream is at odds with his or her partner's.

Yay! I liked this book a lot. Fun, interesting, and well written.

A longer review will be posted on C-Spot Reviews after the book is released but it mostly says the same thing.

Thanks BSB and NetGalley!

This is the second time I've read this book, the first being many years ago. My thoughts are pretty much the same, I love the historical pirate story featuring Captain Tommy Farris and enjoyed the modern day story featuring Randi and Emma. The unfolding of Tommy's story was interesting and engaging and I wish there had been more of it.

Anyone who enjoys lesbian romances and pirates should really like this book. It's a bit dated in some ways (PDAs and no use of Google - *gasp*) but that doesn't take away from the story.… (mere)

I love this two book series (along with The Crown of Valencia) and wish there could have been even more. Well, that's not really true. There's not much more there could have been but the characters were fantastic. And the way the author handles the historical aspects and the things that Kate has to get used to is just great.
