Betrayed by her own longing to be at sea with her sea captain husband, and by her loneliness, Azuba finds herself closeted with her young daughter on her unforgiving husband's sailing ship. Over the next three years of heart stopping adventures, Azuba endures vicious storms, starvation, pregnancy and childbirth, and the shock of cold-blooded pirates. The enormity of world travel in the 1860's changes Azuba utterly as she and her husband slowly, tentatively learn how to trust each other again.Categories: Reviews
