Julienne Ashby was a young lady that grew up in the lap of luxury but when her father died living the family deeply owing everyone and mortgages on everything else. She her mother, aunt, brother and young sister had to leave their home with nothing but a few things that was not worth anything that could be sold. When the lawyer gave her all her father's papers, they saw something that really amazed them maybe there was some hope after all. There was a title of an old river boat that the boiler had blew up years before and it was just sitting on the Mississippi river.
That is when Dallas Bronte comes into the picture as is was a captain and a pilot of river boats, until an accident happened on one and he was blamed. But he and Julienne moved the complete family onto the dirty and moldy boat. The family learned how to clean and cook for themselves.
Can they get the money to fix the boat up where they can make a living with it, or is this also going to fail the family.
I have read a lot of Gilbert Morris' books but I think this one is the best of them all. Some of them I just could not get interested in, so I really didn't know about this one, but it will really hold your attention as it did mine. It is historical but not worded so that you need to be a historian to understand it.
Thanks to B and H Publishing for sending me this advanced reader's copy for my honest review.
