Call of the Sea is a lovely young adult novel starring Ellie and her dream of becoming a privateer on a ship. Love her spunk and her passion and drive for the life she wants at sea. Her relationship with Nelson is great. Love Daniel, sweet and wounded by his past, and the relationship he had with Captain Winters is real and touching. The dialogue was good and the scenery and experiences aboard the ships had me there with them.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who loves a sweet romance that blooms out of hardship, especially if sea life is on your list of passions.
