Synopsis from Goodreads:
James Benedict is a just man haunted by evil. Pushed to the edge, everything stripped from him, a new man arises . . . a man whose name strikes fear into the hearts of all who hear it: "Captain Hook".
Eileen Davis was a timid woman. Through a fateful cruise she finds herself in the company of the Captain of the Mistral Thief. With his guidance, and the meddling of the local barista, she eventually finds her inner strength.
Will the two of them unite through time to fulfill the promise of their ancestors or will tempers ignite leading all to failure?
True love's magic is not to avoid changes,
But to navigate them successfully.
Not only does Los tell her story through multiple time periods, but also though many characters. They are intriguing and well developed. There’s someone for everyone in this story.
I fully admit that I don’t normally read stories that re-write an old classic, but I’m glad that I picked up this one. By combining the old with the new Los creates a uniquely captivating story for readers. She takes the stories from our childhood and brings them back to us today.
