Selah has waited her whole life for a happily ever after. As the only daughter of the leader of Potomac, she knows her duty is to find the perfect match, a partner who will help secure the future of her people. Now that day has finally come.

But after an excruciatingly public rejection from her closest childhood friend, Selah’s stepmother suggests an unthinkable solution: Selah must set sail across the Atlantic, where a series of potential suitors awaits—and if she doesn’t come home engaged, she shouldn’t come home at all.

From English castle gardens to the fjords of Norge, and under the eye of the dreaded Imperiya Yotne, Selah’s quest will be the journey of a lifetime. But her stepmother’s schemes aren’t the only secrets hiding belowdecks…and the stakes of her voyage may be higher than any happy ending.

I have completely fallen in love with this book!

I have to admit when I first started reading I was a little skeptical but Anna you did good.

This book is different and imaginative. It draws you in and keeps you there. It is a very unique book and story and I just feel in love with it and the characters.

I didn’t expect the book to go the way it did. I had a different plot mapped out in my head and I was like what when things played out differently. But that is okay, because Anna did what I least expected and that’s why I loved it even more.

The secrets and lies that were chucked into this book just added to it. My only downfall was there seemed to be too many character at the last half of the book. It totally threw me off but apart from that this book was superb. Oh and the ‘daddy’ parts. These had me cringing.

Apart from this the characters we’re amazing and I just loved every single one of them.

I am incredibly excited to see what Anna chucks at us in the next book!
