Heart's Safe Passage by Laurie Alice Eakes


This book was full of so many twists and turns. Finding love after living in a relationship of fear is difficult and this book touches on this subject. Phoebe had been married, but had been abused and this abuse had caused the loss of her baby. She wants to help others bring babies into the world by being a midwife, but people will not let her-except for her ex sister-in-law who was desparate. This book talks of Phoebe's redemption and her realization that she can have love again.


One woman takes the treacherous journey toward redemption . . . and love.

All Phoebe Lee wants out of life is to practice midwifery in Loudon County, Virginia. But when she refuses to accompany her pregnant sister-in-law to help save her husband from an English prison during the War of 1812, Phoebe finds herself pressed aboard a British privateer.

Captain Rafe Docherty promises to get Phoebe's brother-in-law out of prison in exchange for information Rafe needs to exact revenge on the man who destroyed his family. As he realizes his attraction to Phoebe, she determines to get ashore before her patient goes into labor--and before her own heart is in danger. But an enemy in their midst threatens to end their plans--and their very lives.
