Savina Roxeter, her family and her fiancé are traveling from Jamaica back to England, much to Savina's displeasure. She dreads leaving Jamaica, which has come to feel like home, for the stuffy aristocratic lifestyle her impending marriage will require. She surprises Anthony Heywood, her fiancé's secretary, who learns that Savina is a well-read woman, not the insipid creature he thought her to be. On their journey, Savina's strength is immediately tested when their ship is commandeered by Americans and they become part of a castaway camp. The duration of their stay and their rescue shape their futures forever in Donna Simpson's Lady Savage (4). Simpson evokes deep and powerful emotions and draws them out with incredible accuracy. What a reward when Anthony does indeed win his Lady Savage. The reader will jump for joy when these two find the happiness they so deserve. (Jun., 256 pp., $4.99)
