    Another good read by little known historical romance writer Thorpe.In this outing, Thorpe takes her readers to the West Indies during the late 1600 s Jared Vernon escapes the English gallows for participating in the Duke of Monmouth s rebellion and is shipped to Barbados as an indentured servant for 10 long years Plantation owner Matthew Court is persuaded to add Jared to the ranks of workers by his headstrong daughter, Bethany, who sees something in Jared is it the initial stirrings of love Another good read by little known historical romance writer Thorpe.In this outing, Thorpe takes her readers to the West Indies during the late 1600 s Jared Vernon escapes the English gallows for participating in the Duke of Monmouth s rebellion and is shipped to Barbados as an indentured servant for 10 long years Plantation owner Matthew Court is persuaded to add Jared to the ranks of workers by his headstrong daughter, Bethany, who sees something in Jared is it the initial stirrings of love well of course it is.Thorpe obviously loves this time period and this locale, as she has used it effectively in several other novels, most notably The Sword and the Shadow and The Devil s BondmanI can t say enough how much I like Thorpe s writing Her books are fun to read, clean and have a proper sense of historical place On the downside, some of her characters especially the heroines suffer from being too melodramatic and weak natured I put this down to the time Thorpe wrote them 1950s 1970s , and also to the time period of the stories themselves which cover the 1600s 1800s If you enjoy recently written romances be they contemporary or historical , Thorpe will probably not satisfy For me, however, she s just right

    Another terrific entry by Sylvia Thorpe, in an unusual setting the New World, in the 1600s Fascinating premise, that Bethany, a beautiful rich slave owner s daughter with a conscience, falls for Jared Vernon, a Jacobite soldier sentenced to slavery in the West Indies This has everything a swashbuckler should have virtue in danger, daring escapes, piracy, a slave uprising, unjust condemnationgood story Another one of hers that I re read every couple of years.
