Heart’s Safe Passage

A Novel

Laurie Alice Eakes


One woman takes the treacherous journey toward redemption . . . and love.

All Phoebe Lee wants out of life is to practice midwifery in Loudon County, Virginia. But when Phoebe is pressed by her pregnant sister-in-law to help save her husband from an English prison, Phoebe finds that she cannot refuse. The two women, one frightened and lonely, the other determined and steadfast, end up aboard a British privateer headed across the Atlantic.

Captain Rafe Docherty’s ship is no place for women, especially a woman in such a delicate condition. But his quest requires the information they hold if he is to exact revenge on the man who destroyed his family. Still, he can’t help but wonder if he made the right choice.

When it becomes apparent there is an enemy among them on the ship, the stakes are raised. Will they reach the English shore in time? And can love overcome vengeance?
