Jim Courtney, the son of a settler in Southern Africa, falls in love at first sight with Louisa, a wrongfully accused woman he spies aboard a prison ship. When the ship crashes, he seizes the opportunity to rescue her, but his quick decision means they must flee. When Courtney's actions shame an official, his family is put in danger, as well. The action starts quickly and builds throughout, leading to an exciting--and bloody-- confrontation. Tim Pigott-Smith reads the tale as a tough adventure yarn but doesn't shy away from the romance between Jim and Louisa. Listeners who like adventure, historical or otherwise, will enjoy this chase on land and sea. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
