When cultures clash – an epic 19th-century adventure
By Amazon Customer
A captivating and most unusual story set during the Napoleonic wars: the whole world is on fire, and people from various cultural spheres get mixed up in the most unbelievable adventures. Like Sarah, who is of Scottish origins but grew up on a remote island in the South Seas; she and her father embark on a journey to Scotland, but the ship’s captain has got other plans: he poisons the father in order to sell the beautiful daughter into slavery on the Barbary Coast. She is in turn kidnapped by Algerian pirates, though, and the pirate captain, who turns out to be a Brit, falls in love with her – but then she is captured by the Dey of Algiers, who wants to add her to his harem…
In a really thrilling way, this book shows us how cultures clash, how people from different societies and religions have enormous difficulties in understanding each other. The most striking example is the young heroine: her parents were both Scottish, but she grew up integrated into a Polynesian island society; she doesn’t even speak proper English because she never bothered to listen much to her father’s lessons – she had no idea she would ever have to leave her island. Then she gets to know and love the British pirate and tries to understand the Western way of living and thinking – and a little while later, she gets thrown into a North African harem!
Intricate character portrayals and vivid descriptions of all the harem intrigues and the political schemes of the time make this book a real page-turner. A must for all fans of historical romance!
