An evocative and wholly satisfying romance…
A poignant romance that doubles as a travel memoir, Frazer-Jameson’s new novel takes the reader on an exhilarating journey as a wealthy widow sets out to travel around the world while looking for romance. It’s been seven years since the lovely Helena de Croy Ringold, an Italian aristocrat, became a widow. Determined to start afresh, Helena embarks on a Grand Round the World voyage. Meeting the handsome Russian Captain Grigory Petrovich made Helena realize that she still had a desire to love and be loved. However, for the handsome Captain nothing matters but his job. Frazer-Jameson’s storytelling is evocative, and she skillfully employs language to create an interesting protagonist in Helena whose fears, struggles, anxieties, and small triumphs are both convincing and relatable. With her deeply-realized characterization, profound insights, and thorough understanding of the contradictory impulses of human nature, Frazer-Jameson has delivered a provocative tale. Vivid, intelligent, and often touching, this novel is a must-read for romance readers.
