***The Girl Underground, Book 2***

"Do not betray the ones you love, for it will cause you pain... And that is the sort of pain most never recover from." 

Lucy Quincy left her home behind to move to the small, remote island of Belmoran after finding out a horrible secret about her family's past. On the beautiful island, she discovers a freedom she has never known, even though her budding romance with the the local naval hero, Captain Ross Beauchamp, continues to confuse her. But her past refuses to let go of her, and things only get complicated when James Boatwright, her childhood sweetheart, comes to Belmoran with the sole purpose of claiming her for himself.

I believe Lucy is nothing like Abigail. 
                              Can't wait for James and her to meet. 
                              I hope Malia visits Mary.

Excellent start. Can't wait for more. Want to see how Lucy reacts to the letter from her brother of another mother.
