About The Author

bestselling, Christy Award nominated author who has long claimed that

homeschooling her two kids, editing, designing book covers, and
pretending her house will clean itself. Roseanna is the author of a slew
of historical novels that span several continents and thousands of
years. Spies and war and mayhem always seem to find their way into her
books…to offset her real life, which is blessedly ordinary. She and her
family make their home in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. You

This is one of my favorite authors and this read sure does not
disappoint. Quaint island cottages, pirates, treasure, and a free summer
before her life is supposed to change forever. This is the freedom that
Lady Elizabeth "Libby" Sinclair is offered and approved of by her
mother, and the suggestion comes from her maid Mabena Moon [love the
name], and we find out why. What an ideal place for this young woman who
loves nothing better than to study the fauna in this subtropical
We are given a bit of everything here, including a Love
of God, and a love of family, along with danger, and a bit of romance
In the end, I loved the decisions made and how things worked out, and now I can't wait to return!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
