Five sisters embark on a journey to a new home, to Brighton, where Mary's (the eldest) fiancee lives. Having lost both their parents and being left practically destitute, the girls have no money to secure passage on a cruise ship. Fortunately, an old school friend of their father's, Charlie, owns a small ship and offers the sisters free passage on his ship, in exchange for light cooking and housekeeping duties. The girls gloomily embark on the small ship for a 3-month voyage along with Charlie, 16 sailors, and an invalid, changing their lives forever.

Mary is the oldest (at 21), and the most beautiful. She is also flirty and coy, and practically every sailor on the ship is enamored with her. Her fiancee recently left for Brighton to begin school to become a doctor. During her absence from him, she questions their love and doubts her choice to marry him.

Sara is practical and bookish. She is neither flirtatious nor romantic. She falls in love with a man she never expected and has to fight for her love, while keeping everyone else together.

Nora is a hopeless romantic. She instantly falls for the most gorgeous man on board (Ben) and desperately tries to gain his attentions through her schemes, never suspecting there's another on board who looks at her the same way she looks at Ben.

Emy is sweet and shy. Painfully bashful, she harbors a deep love for a man who has no idea of her affection. Although the sisters are so close they know almost everything about each other, she can't bring herself to confess her love to them. Will she ever win the heart of the man she desires? Will she be able to overcome her quiet nature to reach out to him?

Gail, the youngest, is the wild one of the crew.

The story line was actually a fairly good one. While a bit longish, it would have kept my interest, if the writer had done a little more research in the time period they were trying to depict- I think. I actually couldn't tell you what time this author was writing about. There were color photographs and multiple photographs of your average Joe, when it was relatively expensive and certainly not common place to own a camera; certainly not a color camera. The were carriages but other modern items that weren't common place before the advent of cars. As well, the writer tried to use period language and grammar, but failed abominably.

Also, tons of grammatical and spelling errors-common enough in Kindle versions, but way too many to simply ignore. I stopped reading half way through, as I couldn't take any more of the contradictions in time and grammar mistakes. The writer has potential, but needs to put in the effort of research before attempting a piece like this one.

I tried to read this, I really did, but I gave up when the author declared that the ship's captain considered a teenage bookworm with next to no practical experience to make a more suitable deputy than any of sixteen seasoned sailors.

Without question the author has never so much as set foot on a sailboat. Neither has she bothered to find out what life aboard a sailing vessel would have been like during the--nebulous--period that provides the--nebulous--setting for her story.

An author who can't be asked to spend time and effort on their writing, cannot expect me to spend time and effort on reading her work.

Not very well written, kind of trite and unrealistic, even for a romance type novel. And were there no editors available? Dropped words and errors throughout. Yet I still had to read to the end and see how it all wrapped up. Go figure--no surprises!

I kept reading it hoping that something might happen. The story didn't fit any historical period accurately. People who rode in carriages would not have thought, spoken, nor behaved in the ways these characters did.
There were many spelling and grammatical errors and the author clearly does not have a good grounding in the English language.

The story line is reasonable, but the author should have an actual editor work on the book. A spell checker is not an acceptable substitute! For example, the author consistently used the word lied, when the appropriate word was laid. The lack of editing made reading the book a chore.

This book never seemed to be going anywhere. I stopped reading half-way through it as it kept putting me to sleep!
