Jane Orcutt’s Regency romance

Captain’s Log, Supplemental

Jane Orcutt was a beloved writer who passed away a few months ago. Her last novel, All the Tea in China, is a Christian Regency-era romance that looks to be a fabulous read (I haven’t gotten my copy yet, it’s in transit in the mail). All proceeds for her book go to her family.

Every good young Englishwoman knows that her destiny depends upon a good marriage match. But Isabella Goodrich is not your typical good young Englishwoman.

After an encounter with those less fortunate than she, witty and fun-loving Isabella makes a shocking decision.

Against everyone’s advice and wishes, she is going to become a missionary in the Far East.

Fighting against cultural expectations, common sense, and a mentor who is not as he seems, Isabella leaves her predictable Oxford life behind and sets sail to a new world fraught with danger.

Can she trust the mysterious missionary Phineas Snowe? Or will her adventure end before it even begins?

A delightful story for readers who like high adventure, twisting plots, and a hint of romance.
