    1. This book harkens back to the classic, sweeping, historical romances we see so few of these days, yet it is filled with original elements. To begin with, the story follows a young woman and her brother from England to Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. I can't remember ever reading a romance novel set in that time and place. That's a shame, because the period of the Salem Witch Trials is rife with dramatic possibilities, and Ms. Gallant makes excellent use of them. If you're looking for a satisfyingl [...]

Captain Nicholas Thayer soon discovers that his cabin boy is actually a beautiful girl, but she redeems herself by nursing the ca [...]

    3. I enjoyed this story, but felt compelled to give it three stars because I felt there were too many historical inaccuracies.I picked up my kindle and began reading while on vacation, with no memory of the premise of the book I had previously downloaded (Vacation brain!) While reading, I kept trying to figure out what time in history the story was taking place. I thought surely it must be sometime in the mid 1800's -- there were too many modernisms for it to be earlier. For instance, the dog's nam [...]

    5. Once again, author Jannine Gallant delivers an emotional and entertaining story. She has a knack for putting her heroines in peril and Megan Pendrake is no different. Accused of being a witch in Salem, Massachusetts in the 1600s, Megan's only crime is to fall in love with the man who can't live without her, Nicholas Thayer.

    6. I liked the pace of this book. The writer jumped right into the plot and events moved quickly. It was a good read.

    7. Megan Pendrake has always possessed the second-sight which her grandmother calls a gift and her brother, Duncan thinks a nuisance. Not being able to read them properly Megan’s visions only confuse her and leave her both physically and emotionally drained. Having seen bleak glimpses into her future she isn’t surprised when she and her brother have to flee England, but they have no idea of the turmoil they are heading towards as they sail to Salem, Massachusetts in the year 1692ease read the r [...]
