When I picked up Heart’s Safe Passage I didn’t know what to expect. While I enjoyed the first book in the series it wasn’t my favorite. I didn’t know who would be the main character. I was happy to find out that it was Phoebe a favorite of mine from the first book.
Due in part to her sister-in-law Belinda, Phoebe finds herself on an enemy ship at least she thinks its an enemy ship. During the war of 1812. Rafe Docherty is the captain of the ship has promised to free Belinda’s husband in exchange for information. He is neither British or American but Scottish and loyal to no one. Phoebe is along because she is a midwife and Belinda is in need of one.
Rafe is not your typical hero he is more the unlikely hero. Both Rafe and Phoebe discover much about themselves and each other on the journey.
