Finding her life on a tobacco plantation in colonial Maryland unbearably dull, Caroline sneaks down to the local inn to see a display of treasures brought by sailors from far off lands. Before she knows it, she’s on their ship headed for those far off lands herself.
From her unadorned, isolated plantation in an obscure corner of the American colonies, Caroline Carter dreams of seeing the world. But in her fantasies, she travels as a lady of fashion and high society, not as a pauper in boys’ clothing forced to slave away as a deckhand on a privateer vessel.
Recently arrived from England, Josiah Throckmorton, is not exactly thrilled to hear the news that his intended bride is on a ship full of men bound for unknown waters. But he’s also not thrilled with the prospect of joining Caroline’s brother on a rescue mission that will be dangerous, expensive, and terribly inconvenient. He came to Maryland to make his fortune, and instead he’s just made a mess.
But the adventure of a lifetime–and its disastrous aftermath–may be just what Caroline and Josiah need to show them the world is a much bigger place than their own worries would have them believe. And maybe they’re not as helpless as they think…

My relationship with God
My family (maybe that should rank higher?)
Beer (sometimes this ranks much higher too)
