Publisher's Summary

Singapore in the 1860s is exotic and yet terrifying for a penniless Englishwoman, alone and vulnerable after her mother's death. Too pretty to obtain a governess' job, Isabella Saunders accepts an offer from Singapore merchant Mr Lee to teach him English and live with his family. 

Two years later Bram Deagan arrives in Singapore, determined to make his fortune as a trader. Mr Lee sees a way to expand his business connections and persuades Isabella to marry Bram. 

Bravely, she sets sail for a new land and life. But the past casts a long shadow, and together she and Bram face unexpected dangers. Will they find a way to achieve their dreams of a successful trading business? 

And will their marriage turn out to be more of a love match than they ever could have dreamed?

Annoying recording

I love Anna Jacobs books but this story was a bit weak. Mainly the ending but I guess there’s more in the series. What I found really distracting was the recording. I could hear the narrator swallowing, licking her lips, and breathing. I know they are normal things for a person to do but to hear it in my ears so loudly was like nails on a chalkboard.

Predictable storyline

Another story by Anna Jacobs when every event is predictable. All the baddies are caught and all the good people find love.
