Review: Heart Like an Ocean by Christine Steendam

Heart Like an Ocean by Christine Steendam

In a society where she doesn't belong, Senona Montez, a strong-willed and free-spirited woman refuses to follow the path expected of a Don's only child.

On the eve of her marriage to a stranger, she saddles her horse and flees everything she knows, only to discover the petty concerns of society did not prepare her for the harsh life on the open sea. She finds an unlikely protector in a reckless privateer, Brant Foxton.

Straddling the worlds of independence and privilege in 1600's Europe, this captivating man challenges her in ways she never thought possible, shows her what living to the fullest really means, and allows her to follow her heart wherever it leads.

My Thoughts:
I loved this book so much. It is Senona's story, her journey. She is a great character. Strong, brave, intelligent. She makes some choices that others don't agree with, but she does what is best for herself, and she grows a lot over the course of the book. All of the characters are very human. Add to that the unexpected twists in the story and you get a book that I couldn't put down. It is quite a ride and you just have to hold on and have faith that things will work out the way they should. The ending was very satisfying. I definitely recommend this one.

My Rating: *****
Steam Factor: !
