Book Review: No Safe Harbor by Elizabeth Ludwig


Set in New York City in 1897, No Safe Harbor is the story of a young Irish woman searching for her twin brother.

For the last two years, Cara Hamilton had thought her brother was dead, a victim of political violence in Ireland. But when she receives a letter from him with instructions to meet him in New York, Cara boards a ship and starts a perilous journey.

But once she arrives there is no sign of her brother, and she must find her way with the help of strangers who want to befriend her, even though she has been warned to trust no one. Cara’s new life takes her to the intrigues and dangers of a political underworld. Her guide and protector is Rourke Walsh – a man who claims to be her friend, but could he be the one person her brother warned her to avoid?

Elizabeth Ludwig has painted a fascinating picture of New York at the end of the 19th century, complete with the contrast of beauty and poverty that makes the city so intriguing. Her characters were compelling, and I can hardly wait to read more of Cara’s story.

No Safe Harbor is the first book in the Edge of Freedom series. I’m looking forward to the next installment.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for my unbiased review.
