Publisher's Summary

Cathy Marie Hake, best-selling author of Forevermore, tells the touching tale of a British governess who braves an 1890s Atlantic crossing to begin a new life in America.

Seeking a brighter future, Millie books passage to New York aboard the Opportunity. When a widower scours the ship for a suitable nanny, he selects Millie from the crowds in steerage. He is standoffish at first, but soon Millie's tireless devotion to his motherless toddler begins to win him over.

    "Wonderful!"

    Another great book by Cathy Hake. I loved this story. It was interesting from beginning to the end and the narrator is one of the best ever. Her voice changes all the time and she is so expressive. Great author.

    "Story was ok"

    This book was ok, narrator made the characters from Texas all sound the same. Which took away from the book for me.

    Story
    "a bit rambling"
    Any additional comments?

    Mostly predictable, seems to take a long time to get anywhere, gentle stuff. I would listen to more of her stories, but they're not meant to be gripping - just chick lit romance.

    "Great story!"

    The narrator has a fair voice but tends to add to much of a hick drawl to the Texan voices. It wasn't horrible but it was distracting.
