Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
From Ireland to Ellis Island, Cara, now in New York, arrives in search of her brother, Eoghan. Cara found work in a candle factory and to her surprise, she also found many friends in the boarding house where she lived . . . and one enemy. The story is a gentle, easy listen, even with the danger that Cara encounters . . . I had never heard of the Fenian Brotherhood before listening to No Safe Harbor. All in all, clean, good book.
The story, itself, is interesting. The narrator was exceptional! I loved listening to the various accents. I will definitely order more books by this author and narrator.
Safe Harbor ranks in the top ten books I have listened to. I listen to many books since I have a long commute to work.
The story grabs your attention at the very begining. It is interesting and very "clean".
I really liked the fact that the book is captivating and a well written Christian book.
I highly recommend Safe Harbor. If you like historical romance you will like this book! The narrator did a wonderful job.
