Publisher's Summary

When Anna Konig first meets Bairn, the Scottish ship carpenter of the Charming Nancy, their encounter is anything but pleasant. Anna is on the ship only to ensure the safe arrival of her loved ones to the New World. Hardened by years of living at sea, Bairn resents toting these naive farmers - dubbed "Peculiars" by deckhands - across the ocean. As delays, storms, illness, and diminishing provisions afflict crew and passengers alike, Bairn finds himself drawn to Anna's serene nature. For her part Anna can't seem to stay below deck and far away from the aloof ship's carpenter, despite warnings.
When an act of sacrifice leaves Anna in a perilous situation, Bairn discovers he may not have left his faith as firmly in the past as he thought. But has the revelation come too late?
Amish fiction favorite Suzanne Woods Fisher brings her fans back to the beginning of Amish life in America with this fascinating glimpse into the first ocean crossing as seen through the eyes of a devout young woman and an irreverent man. Blending the worlds of Amish and historical fiction, Fisher is sure to delight her longtime fans even as she attracts new ones with her superb and always surprise-filled writing.

Finding Love

The story starts out slowly. It is fiction but could have been true. There was a humorous side to it that will make the listener chuckle. The boy Felix is an adventurous one. He will capture your heart.

Excellent Book, a real Page-Turner

This story kept me turning pages, without ever setting the book down. And, with twists and turns, it kept me guessing what deepest, dark secrets were being sought until the very last last pages. Characterization could have been a little better. An Epilogue was wanted but it didn’t exist. Overall well worth reading.

5 stars

I have listened to many Amish fiction novels. This one I especially enjoyed, partly because it had a different setting by it being on a ship.
