Author(s): Carol Thomas
She had dreamed she was sleeping...not in her bed but on a stormy sea, her arms wound tightly around her naked body, her hair flying wildly in the wind, waiting for Richard to rescue her. But no ship came, and she woke to find the salty wetness on her cheeks was not sea water, but tears.
Charlotte is a conflicted woman, torn between her love for the handsome sea captain who has sailed into her life, and her passionate beliefs in fair treatment for women. In 1860s Canterbury, equal rights for women is still only a dream, but for Charlotte it is a belief she will not yield, and a position she will not compromise, not even for marriage. But her strong head leads her into an emotional stalemate, the consequences of which will tear her family apart, as thwarted passions take a terrible revenge.
The Sea Between sees the return of historical novelist Carol Thomas, whose bestselling first novel Consequences introduced many readers to our fascinating past.
