A strong woman who graces the high seas as captain...

A wonderful, unusual story of love, adventure, and social graces in the 1800's. While carrying a unisex nickname and hiding behind men's clothes, Smokey is a beautiful woman... and a gift to all her know her, except the pirate who wants her. Lori Wick makes places I have never seen and lifestyles I will never experience feel like home. So realistic is her story line that I can feel the bumps as the carriage navigates dry land, an unusual place for a ship's captain.This book 2 of the "Kensington Chronicles" series is a must read! While a bit more enjoyable if you have read #1 (The Hawk and The Jewel), this `stand alone' book stands out on it's own. A new cover has been released on this 1994 book.

Great book from the Kensington Chronicles!

Lori Wick certainly is one of my favorite Christian/Romance writers, coming up to a close second to Dee Henderson. And probably my favorite books from Lori Wick are the Kensington Chronicles."Wings of the Morning" is about young Victoria "Smokey" Simmons, captain of one of the fastest ship of the Atlantic, the 'Aramis'. When her father, the famous Clancy, had died and left her alone in the world, she asks God to give her strength. Three years have passed and Smokey begins dreaming of life away from the sea. She wants to have a home and raise a family. When she meets another sea captain, Dallas Knight, she believes that her dreams can finally come true. Dallas, also hopelessly in love with her, shares her dreams. But when a scheming and evil pirate comes into their lives, Smokey and Dallas' hopes for the future may come to an end. Will they have the strength to overcome these painful events and to trust themselves into their Father in heaven?A truly marvelous tale taking place in the mid-1800s, "Wings of the Morning" will have you swept into a world of romance and suspense. I love the wonderful characters of Smokey, who is young and shy yet has great spirit, and Dallas, who will do anything to protect her. They are so real that it is very hard not to like them and to hope they have their dreams fulfilled. The other three books of the Kensington Chronicles are "The Hawk and the Jewel", "Who Brings Forth the Wind", and "The Knight and the Dove", all of them filled with romance and suspense, plus they all are about people who love and honor their God. My suggestion to you is that if you have never read any of Lori Wick's books, you should start with these four books.And if you are looking for other terrific Christian/Romance books, I recommend all books by Dee Henderson, including the O'Malley Series, "Danger in the Shadows", and the Uncommon Heroes Series. But be ready for suspense, intrigue, and mystery, because these books are filled with them!

My favorite Lori Wick novel!

This is the first Lori Wick novel I ever read. And I've reread it *several* times since. (Even named my cat after the main character!) This whole series is also my favorite.Mrs. Wick creates such intriguing characters, plots, and situations. You can visual what's happening as you read. And the love of God that flows throughout the book is just fantastic.Two thumbs up (I'd give more, but that's all God gave me!) I wish Mrs. Wick would write more in this series!

A wonderful and exciting story

Of all of Lori Wick's books, this has to be one of my favorites. I love the character Smokey and how she captained her own ship. The scene where Smokey and Brandon fight a duel and she wins is my favorite, mainly because no one believed that she could fight so well. That's what I love about Lori Wick's characters. Each one has something unpredictable about them. Intriguing characters coupled with an engaging and interesting plot make "Wings of the Morning" a great book to curl up with and enjoy.
