Enjoyed this tale, but not quite as much as The Gentle Rebel. I did learn a lot about what it was like to be on a ship during war times in the 1770's. Not a pretty place to be.

Some books of your childhood do not improve upon a reread. I really used to enjoy this series, and this premise (former arrogant jerk has amnesia and falls in love with a woman he previously tried to rape) is, errr, scenery-chompingly interesting. But it just does not do it for me as an adult. And also, it's PRETTY DISTURBING that *SPOILER* she falls in love with her attacker when there's a perfectly good Quaker preacher available.

I Loved this series when I read it in the 90's and am enjoying reading it again. Ah a good book what a wonderful gift
The romance was odd and felt false.
The story was pretty interesting, but I'm frustrated with the way the main characters act. Kissing before the right time, backing out on their engagements, carelessly letting themselves fall in love, disregarding modesty, etc., etc. The last book had some similar things, but not quite as much. I'm hoping the next one will be better, but if not, I'll stop reading the series.
This series by Gilbert Morris is one of my absolute favorites. Each book follows at least one member of a generation in the Winslow family tree and the member(s) gets saved and finds true love. There's also some commentary on the social conditions of the time frame. Truly interesting.
I like historical books & this seemed pretty accurate in historical facts, which I like. It is a series of I think 43 or 45 books which I hate & like all at the same time. But a good read. Entertaining. The series follows different times in history which is fun.
This is the first book I read from Mr. Morris. My favorite by far. He's a amazing writer. Love his books.
This book took place during the Revolutionary war from naval prospective.
