This book includes all 3: Vol.1: A Contrary Wind; Vol 2 Trouble the Waters; Vol 3: In the Sea Unshaken --- Entertaining, and you will laugh at various times.
This is a clean (sexual) book, not a Christian book, does have killings in it but only a few things are what I would consider gruesome. But that is the life and adventure of a young woman whose family owns ships and other holdings. Yet she is nothing like the 'ladies' of the ton - nor any other woman. A few places are 'slowish' reading but in many cases it helps you understand her supposedly friend - A. Standish.
There is a romance but it does take awhile to develop - Lots of adventure, kidnapping, being put in jail (you read about many of these), pirates, spying, selfish Standish, So much going on that you want to keep reading.
I rate the book TWO stars due to the fact that I don't like reading about the extent of sadism described ( & evil psychosis of one particular main character.) For some reason, I'm currently not being allowed to click beyond one star!
The plot itself kept me interested in reading the three books till the end.
The book is not a faith based novel and therefore does not belong under the heading of Christian novels.
The only criticism I find is that some details were repeated too often. Not sure if this was done in order to remind the reader of what was already disclosed in previous chapters as a refresher or what? I found it to be a little bit distracting and slowing of the fast pace. .
All in all I was searching the internet for the rest of this series. Very, Very Good Read.
Found the herbal stuff interesting too, though some of the rhymes were a bit corny (pine needle tea?).
Story within a story, which is usual for this author, but threads it all together in the end.
Easy to read, not as dark as some of the other works by this author.
