I really enjoyed the adventure of this book A life on a ship on the ocean sounds terrifying to me I didn t love any of the characters though they were realistic However I loved the story It wasn t happy it was full of trauma and bad choices but I loved the book for the way it sucked me Into what was happening to the characters The writing is descriptive and paints a perfect picture I feel the author was trying to create a realistic life of a sea captain his crew his family and what it would be like to live on a ship for months or even years at a time A very rough life Not pretty or romantic in anyway So for as much as I love romance the fact that this book was real and didn t sugar coat anything I respect the author for that even

When I first started this novel I wondered if I was about to be dropped into an idealistic romance on the oceans So wrong This book is of much sterner stuff than thatThe novel is written through the eyes of Azuba a young wife to sea captain Nathaniel Bradstock After the loss of their second child through a late miscarriage while Nathaniel is at sea Azuba s desire to join her husband on the oceans seems perfectly reasonable and his refusal prideful stubborn and harsh It takes a matter of uestionable virtue through a misadventure with the local reverend for the lonely young woman to be finally spirited aboard Nathaniel s ship along with the couple s young daughter CarrieDuring that voyage reality hits as Azuba and young Carrie face the harsh realities of a life at sea Nathaniel treats them like members of the crew with gruff orders and brusue exchanges making it obvious he has no desire to have them aboard They re nearly shipwrecked face freezing conditions starvation overbearing heat loss of life threats of mutiny and so many other difficulties that by the end of the first voyage Azuba entertains how easy it could be to leave her mulish husband and return home with Carrie to become the token shipmaster s wife she s expected to be patiently awaiting her hardworking husband s return whilst enjoying the spoils of his business exploits Tempted she ultimately recognises that her return would be the end of their marriage as a marriage ought to be and also their family So she chooses her often foul tempered husband risking herself and their child and determines they belong together for better or for worseOver and again Azuba chooses to grow up instead of opt out Yes men and women are different and bring these complementary opposites to marriage but tested under such gruelling conditions I fear in our modern world her right to happiness would have overrun whatever promises had been made through their wedding vows She refuses to be sat in a corner chooses to uestion Nathaniel s methods and to his annoyance draw out his thoughts determines to become educated in his craft until finally he begins to recognise her strengths in problem solving and intelligence the very things he loved about her from the start Azuba in turn begins to understand that Nathaniel s gruffness is a cover for his fear of not being able to protect them along with underlying doubts relating to her uestionable interactions with the reverendIn letting go of her once ignorant ideals of what a seafaring life ought to be and choosing to be with her husband Azuba refuses to be a wallflower wife This ultimately leads to a intimate understanding of each other and a tougher love than either of them ever would have known had they settled for what seemed an easier option It s not what she ever expected love and life to be but it s strong durable and than she could have imagined And then the cruellest blow is struckI won t ruin the ending but Azuba s tenacity and strength of character is not flawless She wrestles with herself and Nathaniel and occasionally rails at her situation but through this gains respect for her husband and mutally from him I liked that nothing was sugar coated Even in the aftermath of the worst possible terror the long process of healing emotional and physical wasn t rushed or uick fixed as it could have been Because they had weathered the previous storms in their relationship instead of blame laying they owned their part in the situation and understood fully the wounds that had been dealt to each other s soul allowing them to navigate a way forward together It was a wonderful picture of marriage with all the challenges of self and togetherness and the hard choices a husband and wife are forced to make to see that relationship growExcellently written and packed with substance
