When Merrie Courtland stows away on the Mayflower, she finds herself torn between her attraction to both the sailor Luke Bosworth and Zachariah Gaines, a doctor's assistant.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Merrie, a feisty heroine during the time of the Mayflower landing at Plymouth, has two handsome boys to choose from. Schurfranz offers lots of preposterous plot contrivances, melodrama, and plenty of gloppy dialogue (``The salt spray agrees with you. Your hair is like a golden cloud''). The pace is relentless; the historical aspect has been well researched; there's a sense of place; and, most important, there's lots of romance. After all, young teens don't sigh over these books for the description of the Thanksgiving menu.
