On a Sunday morning in July 1625, Barbary pirates sail into a quiet Cornish bay and storm the church. Their loot: sixty men, women and children, kidnapped and bound for northern Morocco, where they are to be sold in the thronging slave market of the Souq el Ghezel. Amongst them is Catherine Anne Tregenna, a talented young embroiderer. But as her diary reveals, Cat is anything but the subservient and compliant slave that her captors were expecting - and as the coast of England fades from sight, adventure beckons in the East. In an exclusive London restaurant, a gift is given that will change Julia Lovat's life. The antique book of Jacobean embroidery delights her, but when she settles down to read it more closely, she unexpectedly discovers within its foxed and faded pages the extraordinary diary of a young Cornish girl, calling to her from across the centuries. The stories of these two women are destined to converge in an extraordinary and haunting manner.… (mere)

I mostly enjoyed this book. When Julia Lovat is dropped by her lover, he gives her a book- The Needlewoman's Glorie- which belonged to a Cornish girl in the 1600's. The Cornish girl is Cat is who is a servant to Lady Harris of Kenegie. Until one Sunday morning in church Cat & sixty others are abducted by Barbary pirates....
The story flows well & is well written, Jane Johnson's characters are very vivid & so is her writing, I could picture events playing out as I was reading them. The only downside to this story is that the ending seems a little too neat. It's a happy ending so yay but it all played out rather quickly without much warning & it just seemed a little made up. Apart from that though it's a pretty good story :O) ( )

A wonderful adventure novel set in 1625 filled with English nobles and servants, pirates on the high seas, slaves in Muslim Morrocco and romance too. Plus it is all based on historical data which we follow as the novel swings from 1625 to present day.
I enjoyed this novel very much,. ( )

What a fantastic book! At first I was a little wary because I could not relate to the main character and believed her to have an unforgiving flaw. Then as I read on I became hooked. I rooted for her and wished for her strength. But as the story began to turn toward that of the other main character Cat, I became bored. She seemed so shallow and juvinille (probably as was intended). This time I put the book down for a while. When I picked it back up it was only a page later that I once agin was hooked, but this time through Cat and her harrowing journey. I have to say I loved Al-Andalusia /Qasem from the start! What a pirate! I loved how the author gave a fair assessment of both religions. And her descriptions of Morrocco (both in the past and present) were mesmerizing. I look forward to reading other books by this author. I already have "the salt road" on my list to read.

I loved this book. It was rich in details and place, with believable characters. I listened to it on CD, but it would make a great read. The two readers, a man and woman, are British and were wonderful at difference voices and accents. Listening was outstanding due to them. The story takes place across continents and will keep you listening or turning pages.

The prose style was easy, yet sophisticated, in this book and never boring. I wish I'd written it. ( )

The Tenth Gift – Jane Johnson
3 stars
A 21st century woman is given a 17th century book of embroidery patterns. She discovers that the book also contains the journal of a Cornish woman who was kidnapped by pirates and sold into slavery in 1625. The book alternates between the modern and historical story lines. The stories are tied together by a predictable, malevolent, ghostly influence.
This was a quick, mildly entertaining read. Given the potential of the subject matter, it should have been much more than that.
