Book Review Friday
by Barbara Latta
Becalmed is a southern story with a sailing flavor. Set in Beaufort, North Carolina a single jewelry making thirty-something runs aground when she meets a Northern sailor and his adorable daughter.
The seven-year-old red-haired pixie bonds with Tadie Longworth and the relationship between the two threatens the handsome sailboat captain who is trying to raise his daughter alone. While Tadie’s heart is in turmoil over the feelings Will Merritt stirs within her, she is trying to avoid the advances of an old flame who thinks she still burns for him.
Normandie Fischer’s experience with sailboats is evident in her descriptions and terminology. Reading this book will bring saltwater and sand to your senses and weave a romance between a woman who thinks she will never have a family and a widower who doesn’t want another one.
