Review of Breaking Ties by Jo Grafford

Review of Breaking Ties
by Jo Grafford

This book provided a sweet escape on a very dull winter afternoon.  The book begins with the introduction of Rose Payne, a clerk who is desperate to leave England after finding that a rich lord, with whom she'd fallen in love, had no interest in marrying her. Rose takes a job on a ship headed for America, 

During the voyage across the ocean, Rose grows closer and closer with tall, handsome Manteo, who will one day become chief of the Croatoans. Both are shunned by the ship's Puritan passengers, who believe red-haired Rose is a witch and Manteo is an unintelligent savage.

I absolutely loved this book. For a romance novel that contains no sexual situations, the book was very passionate.  I actually did not miss the blatant sex one finds in most romance novels, because reading about the growing feelings between the two main characters was much more entertaining than if they had just had sex multiple times throughout the book.

I'm a great lover of Masterpiece Theater, and this is just the type of novel that they would use to create a movie for their program.  I recommend it to anyone who likes classy romance with a historical spin.

Five stars
