    One thought on “Fair Winds and Homeward Sail: Sophy Croft's Story”

    1. I wrote this as practice, and for fun, and also to address one of the issues I've had with a book that I think Jane Austen never got to polish because she was quite will while writing it, and died before it was finished. Persuasion was the title her brother chose when he had it published. The other issue, a logic flaw that I know she would have caught, I don't go near.Those are underlying bits--the main was a fun, short novel about Sophy Croft, brother of the dashing Frederick Wentworth (who als [...]

    2. I read this on a short trip to England, and it was delightful. Just pure pleasure from start to finish. As most of the time between those two points was spent on one jammed Ryanair flight or another, the ability to sweep me away from my surroundings was especially appreciated! I loved Sophy (as she came to be called) right from the beginning, and both she and Admiral-to-be Croft were exactly as they should have been to become the characters we know from Persuasion. Frederick/Captain Wentworth wa [...]

    3. Lovely lead up to PersuasionI have had this book on my TBR list for awhile now and it was finally time to read it. I have to saw this was a great lead up to Persuasion from the Wentworth/Croft standpoint. It starts with Sophia, Frederick, and Edward becoming orphan when their mother died, and thank goodness a great uncle on their father's side was marked executor of their mother's small will instead of their 2 frumpy aunts. It goes on to tell of how Frederick went onto the Navy while Sophia work [...]

    4. Dear Reader,If you've ever wondered about the circumstances that necessitated the very close familial ties between Edward,Fredrick and Sophia Wentworth,then look no further than this delightful book! Portraying the difficult early life that Sophia led,due to the early death of her parents,we see a young hard working girl,determined to do her best for both of her brothers,one with a promising career in the church,while the other boldly paving his way in the Navy. When Fredrick returns to visit wi [...]

    5. Jane Austen created many memorable characters, painting rich and detailed portraits not only of her remarkable heroines, but of all the people around them. Sherwood Smith, in her novella Fair Winds and Homeward Sail: Sophy Croft's Story, has given us a fresh new look at one of Austen's more intriguing secondary characters, the sister of Persuasion's hero Frederick Wentworth.Sophy Croft is a navy wife, who would rather be on board with her husband, even in the midst of war, than be left behind on [...]

    6. It's years since I read Persuasion, but this stands alone pretty well even if one's memories of the source-text are vague.

    7. Loved this! Persuasion is probably my favorite of Jane Austen's work, and this is Sophy's story - from childhood through the Persuasion storyline. Sherwood Smith takes a secondary character and expands her tale in a gorgeous novel.
