When you're reading a book, does the author picture or bio influence your view of the book? I know for me it sometimes gives me a new perspective on the story. Swept to Sea is unique, not only because of the beautifully told story, but also because of its author. Heather Manning is a teen writer who published her debut novel, Swept to Sea, when she was only sixteen. So what is her book about? Is it up to par with the other inspirational romances out there? Let's take a look.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Eden is determined to never marry, not after the experiences she had with her father and her former suitor. Caspian is bent on revenge and is not looking for love. As the two get to know each other better, however, their convictions begin to change. Eden starts to realize that not all men are cruel and Caspian desires to protect Eden and cannot bear to think of leaving her behind in Port Royal. All is not smooth sailing as their feelings for each other grow, however. They must face challenges from other pirates, a relentless suitor, and even Caspian's own crew.
As far as the “inspirational” part of the book, Eden has always dealt with her problems by running away, but she's never been able to fully escape her fear. She must learn the hard lesson that it is only through trusting the One who is always with her and will protect her that she can finally be free from fear.
Caspian's thirst for revenge has put himself and his crew in danger before, but now with a young woman on his ship that he cannot help but feel drawn to, he must make a decision. Will he keep pursuing revenge for the death of his wife, or will he finally trust God to bring about justice?
One thing I should mention is a scene between Eden and a member of a crew that made me a bit uncomfortable.

Here’s the thing, I LOVE sea-faring adventures. And when you add pirates in the mix, I’m bound to love it. Swept to Sea is the debut novel of 16-year-old author, Heather Manning. Heather and I sail the sea’s together for author MaryLu Tyndall’s Motley Crew and it is so exciting to see a friend’s novel get published! I was afraid that being acquainted with the author would cloud my judgment, but I soon found that was impossible because I absolutely LOVED Swept to Sea!

Lady Eden Trenton’s father has arranged for her to be married to Lord Clive. Hoping to escape this abusive engagement, Eden stows away on a pirate ship, hoping to escape to the Caribbean where she believes her brother is. While hoping to find safe passageway, Eden doesn’t expect to find the handsome Caspian Archer as captain.
After his wife’s death several years ago, Caspian finds himself seeking revenge. But what he doesn’t expect is the beautiful Lady Eden to stowaway on his ship and capture his heart – as well as his son, Reed’s heart.
But Eden isn’t immune to danger, and though she may think danger lies far behind, danger follows at a close distance.

I loved the main characters in this book but I think what made this book even stronger was the fact that it had such loveable side characters as well. Aimee and Ivy are Eden’s close friends and when she disappears, they do what they can to see her back to safety. I loved their loyalty and love for their friend. I also fell in love with Gage, Caspian’s first mate. I look forward to maybe reading more about him in a future story???? I sure hope so! Matthew Emery is another hero who deserves more spotlight.
Overall, this book was exciting, thrilling, romantic, and so much more.

I am impressed with the storyline and character development in Heather Manning's first novel, Swept to Sea. Romance, adventure suspense, set on the high seas...a great combination! Heather did a thorough job with researching background for this book, and I appreciated the period references which made the story credible all the way through. Engaging dialogue as well!

I love books that have a strong female protagonist, and Lady Eden was a very determined young lady from page one through to the end of the novel. Love conquers all, and good triumphs over evil!

I look forward to the sequel, and it's definitely on my "to buy" list.

A great debut novel by a talented young author. Swept to Sea is a sweet story with romance, adventure, suspense, wonderful supporting characters, an independent leading lady, and a pirate gentleman. All things I love in a story. From Captain Archer's need to avenge his late wife's death to Lady Eden Trenton's determination to escape a life of cruelty that was arranged for her, I enjoyed the story. I loved all the supporting characters, especially Caspian's young son and his first mate. I could see some future stories developing with Lady Eden's friends. I hope to read more from this very talented and inspiring young author.

This was such an amazing debut novel by Heather Manning. I loved every minute of it, and couldn't put it down! The story was so captivating, drawing me in with the descriptions and dialogue. The romance is not only sweet, but contains a very Pride and Prejudice feel in the bantering. I'm very much looking forward to reading more by this up and coming author. :)
