I can only give this three stars on here because a) it is not a genre I am really familiar with and b) it would be too easy, because it is written by someone I know to go too far with the praises, which in my view would negate the value of Goodreads as a social network (I use it to link with people with common interests and find books I know I will be really interested in trying).

However, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves historical romance, or who loves Lyme Regis and the West Country. It is reminiscent of the Poldark novels and although the themes of poor girl making good, seduction and redemption are often used Ann handles them well and the conclusion is satisfying. There is a sequel on the way and I think readers of this first novel will be eagerly anticipating it. A rattling good read!
