3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Kelly (Fantasy Literature) VINE VOICE on October 29, 2002
Format: Paperback
I'm picky about romance novels, and this is the kind I like. It has all the right stuff--a sweeping, decades-spanning story of love lost and regained, cameos by historical figures, a compassionate hero, and a feisty heroine. It's the tale of Evan Carew, a fictional compatriot of the very real Francis Drake. Evan loses his first love to Spanish tyranny and finds happiness again with a courageous tomboy who carries a secret drop of royal blood. Fate and political machinations tear them apart---what will happen when they meet again?
The only gripe I have about this book is that I wanted more! This is a long story, and parts of it seemed a little rushed,.

Format: Paperback
Wiggs starts out with interesting characters, times and events then...tries to pack in to much by the end. Too large a time frame and too many events. There just wasn't enough room for it all. Plus, it descends into melodrama during the last third.
