Ransome's Crossing by Kaye Dacus

About the Book
To get to her secret fiancĂ© in Jamaica, Charlotte Ransome disguises herself as a midshipman and joins the crew of one of the ships in the convoy led by her brother William. First Lieutenant Ned Cochrane has only known his captain’s younger sister for a brief time, but is sure she’s the wife he’s been praying for—except he’s about to leave for the Caribbean for at least one year.
An attack on the convoy gains Ned the promotion to commander he has long dreaded—especially once he discovers one of his midshipmen is actually Charlotte Ransome in disguise. After seeking Julia’s advice, Ned decides to keep Charlotte’s secret… and hopes to win her love. Charlotte will soon discover that losing her heart to Ned is not the greatest danger she’ll face on this Atlantic crossing.

My Thoughts
This book was so good I was hardly able to put it down. It was amazing to me how well Charlotte was able to keep up with and even surpass the other midshipmen on her crew, and all with out being discovered. One of the really cool things about this story was the look you got into the workings of the ships. Through all the different points of view you got to see just about every nook and cranny from the lower jobs of the midshipmen to the overseeing of the Captain.
I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good adventure and romance. As I read the last page I immediately grabbed the third and final book in the Ransome Trilogy, Ransome's Quest
