Synopsis

The Moneylender's Daughter Windjammer II by V. A. Richardson

It's 1637. Almost a year has passed since the House of Windjammer was torn apart by death and debt. Adam Windjammer is aboard the Draco in search of a lost fleet, struggling to win back his family's honour and fortune, unaware that events back in Amsterdam are overtaking him. From the violent shores of the Americas, to the dark heart of Amsterdam and on into the marshes of the holy lands, Adam's path ultimately takes him back to Jade - daughter of the man responsible for trying to bring down the Windjammers and seize their company. Her struggle is of a different nature. It is a struggle for freedom from a father's tyranny; an inner struggle between her desire to punish him and be loved by him.

Reviews
