Tide of Fortune, is a thrilling adventure story set on the high seas. It has all the ingredients that readers who are familiar with the writing of Patrick O'Brian, Alexander Kent and CS Forester will recognise: perilous seascapes, bloody sea battles, races against time and tide, gallant sea captains and salty crew, exotic locations but with a twist!

The story is told from the point of view of an inexperienced nineteen-year-old girl, Kerenza Vyvyan. Her voyage on the packet ship Kestrel is not only a journey to ransom her mother and sister held captive by the Governor of Tangier but also proves to be a journey of self-discovery. Kerenza bravely faces the various disasters that befall her on board with a growing strength of character and fortitude she never knew she had.

Jane Jackson's heroine, Kerenza, prefigures the feisty women of 20th century novels rising above the traditional role mapped out for a woman of her time. However, this is not all action and adventure for during the course of her travels Kerenza regains the love and trust of Kestrel's captain, Nick Penrose, who had broken her heart earlier.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'An exciting and memorable story. Jane Jackson never disappoints her readers.' * Kate Tremayne on Eye of the Wind *
5 star review Maritime courage 28 Sep 2012 By David Heppenstall This is much more than a historical romance. It has more depth and twists than we have the right to expect in this genre. The story has depth of character and shows how Kerenza overcomes her doubts when problems confront her and she finishes the story as a well balanced mature young woman. And into the bargain she recaptures the heart of the captain of the Packet ship. Fascinating and enjoyable.
