Katie has tales of thievery! I love tales of romance thievery!
I found this novel hidden under my conservative mother’s bedside table
when I was 13-14? Obviously she didn’t want me to find it, we didn’t even
allow soaps in our home, no MTV either. So of course, I read it immediately.
First tingly feeling ever felt were whilst I read that trashy novel.
I asked her about it recently and she has disavowed all knowledge, of
course so I need the Smart Bitches Expertise!!!
What I remember was late teen to early 20’s sisters fled England by ship
and to pay for their passage they signed indenturship papers. Once in
America, they were sold to a Puritan family, I think?
The dark haired sister falls for the captain of a ship I think as she sees
him around the town she serves in and he takes her virginity.
I think the other sister is a blonde but I don’t remember much else about
The dark haired sister is burns herself at one point and is seen by someone
of the Puritan persuasion treating her burn with cold water instead of the
current method using butter. Because of this she is accused of witchcraft
and stands trial or is about to. She is rescued by her captain in the nick
That is all I remember! Any thoughts?
Everyone knows that cold water is not for burns! Silly woman. She’s totally in league with the devil. Anyone remember this book?
