Too many good books out there that don't whole you hostage!!!!
My favorite character was RyAnne Hunter who wanted to abolish slavery and went to great measures to do so. She also wanted her people to know the one true God.
This series had some really emotional parts dealing with a slave smuggling ring but was also a series of faith and hope. I’m certain the reader will find this series a page-turner as I did. During one episode I learned that pinching-ant pinchers were used to close wounds, in Belgian Congo, until the 1940’s and 50’s.

RyAnne Hunter lives with her parents and two siblings on a beautiful indigo plantation on the other side of the island of Zanzibar. Her beloved papa's health is at risk and RyAnne must stop him from traveling to the continent of Africa to start a mission station—at any cost. She attends the Harcourts' Annual Ball as it will be her last chance to talk her papa out of this ridiculous venture, and meets up with the insufferable Captain Trent Dawson. Trent, captain of The Wasp, has agreed to guide Dr. Hunter on his expedition, but only to help put an end to the slave smuggling trade. The handsome and charming Harcourt heir, Brayden, once again proposes to RyAnne at the ball and this time she might consider it...if the daring plan she concocts to keep her father home succeeds and if the exasperating Trent would simply stay out of her hair!
I have never read a serialized book before, and I was delightfully surprised at how much the author squeezed into the first installment! And just when my heart started racing and I flipped the page to see what was going to happen next...it ended! (gasp!) Thankfully the next installment came out in a few days! Due to the fact that Ms. Bonner was born and raised in Malawi, Africa, lends much authenticity to this colorful, dramatic adventure. I was hooked from the very first page with her use of descriptive imagery and the beauteous setting of Africa—with exquisite indigo plantations, the scent of fragrant foliage and the song of cicadas filling the night air, fascinating characters, and of course, the promise of a breathtaking romance! All isn't frivolity and lightheartedness, however, as the heartbreaking issue of slave trading is proficiently and compassionately intertwined throughout the storyline. Be sure to order your copies of Episode 1 and Episode 2 of Sonnets of the Spice Isle today!

I suspect once I have read more in the series, I will feel more excited about the story, but at this point I feel that it is really short and incomplete, and easily forgettable.
Rather than a series, where every book is a complete story within itself but each book introduces more exciting and interesting characters, this one seem more like a trilogy except the author plans to write six in the series (a hextology or sextet?), I think the material may have worked better with 3 books rather than 6, and it may be something this author will consider in future publishing, or perhaps this would be a Prequel to a Series. hmmmm.....
I would be interested in the opinion of others who have only read Book 1 in 'On The Wings Of A Whisper' (Sonnets of the Spice Isle)
