Book Blurb: The long-awaited sequel to Jane Austen’s final novel, Persuasion—

After an eight-year separation and a tumultuous reunion, Anne Elliot marries the dashing Captain Frederick Wentworth. The pair looks forward to an uneventful honeymoon cruise aboard the HMS Laconia.

But the bride and groom find the seas of matrimony rough. Napoleon has escaped from Elba, the country is at war with France again, and the Admiralty imposes on Wentworth a mysterious passenger on a dangerous secret mission. The good captain is caught between duty to his country and love for his wife.

All eyes are trained for enemies without, but the greatest menace may already be on board…

My Review: This book is the long-awaited third book in the Jane Austen's Fighting Men series. That being said I feel like you don't have to read the first two books to know what's going on. Though it does help as I was a bit confused at the end when all these different connections started being mentioned but it's not that hard to play catch up. I really loved how Anne was determined to sail with Frederick and I was happy that she seemed to be mostly enjoying it.

I did enjoy reading this novel and I do recommend reading this book even if you haven't read the rest of the books in the series.

Rating: 4 stars
