The big lighted building ahead was Parliament itself, Dick told Hart. I’m sorry you won’t get your first view of the city by daylight. Hart tried to sound as if he cared. But how should he when his thoughts were so horribly divided between his dead mother and his living cousin? It had been more than high time to get away from Denton Hall. When he said good-bye to Julia, he had suddenly found himself wondering whether she was.

But it is not long before the wide waters of the Atlantic separate the lovers: Hart's ship is captured by the British and Hart himself falls under the spell of his evil cousin Julia in London.

At the height of the American War of Independence, Hart Purchis, captain of a privateer, marries the rebellious spy Mercy Phillips, rescuing her from the wrath of the British in Savannah. But it is not long before the wide waters of the Atlantic separate the lovers: Hart's ship is captured by the British and Hart himself falls under the spell of his evil cousin Julia in London. Mercy, it seems to him, is lost to him forever. Or is she? Back in Philadelphia Mercy has met a mysterious but charming young Frenchman and is now laying her own plans.

2nd book in the Purchas/Purchis saga. At the end of Judas Flowering, Hart and Mercy were reunited and preparing to marry. Wide is the Water opens with Hart leaving Mercy to find his cousins in New England while he returns to fight.

An exciting book set during the American War of Independence. Well written, good characters, but a bit too much politics and intrigue for my personal tastes. Follows others about the Purchis/Purchas family in the UK and USA by the same author. From 1935, Jane Hodge read English at Somerville College, Oxford University, and in 1938 she took a second degree in English at Radcliffe College. She was a civil servant, and also worked for Time magazine, before returning to the UK in 1947. Her works of fiction include historical novels and contemporary detective novels. In 1972 she renounced her United States citizenship and became a British subject. Библиографические данные.

I have read and loved Ms.Hodge's books for over 40 years. It's delightful to see them coming out for Kindle. I hope you'll publish all 34 titles since my paper copies are so worn and yellowing! Angie C.

This is the second book in the Purchas/Purchis saga. At the end of Judas Flowering, Hart and Mercy were reunited and preparing to marry. Wide is the Water opens with Hart leaving Mercy to find his cousins in New England while he returns to fight. Both seem to regret the way things are left, but nothing can be done about it. Soon, Mercy is left to take care of Ruth, a girl traumatized by Indians while Hart is captured by his English cousin, Dick Purchas, who takes him to England. Will Hart and Mercy ever be together? This is a good book, though not as good as the first.

In this story, we again meet Hart and Mercy Purchis, who are seperated by the Revolution in America. Jane Aiken Hodge is a wonderful storyteller, who weaves her fictional characters around real people and events in history. She is able to give us a glimpse of life during the time of her stories, without getting bogged down in overdetailed descriptions of fashions or buildings. In this story, we are treated to sightings of political figures in America and England, as Mercy travels to Philidelphia, and Hart to London. Her characters are strong, and the women are not helpless little creatures. Fans of historical novels will find this a thoroughly satisfying read.

This novel was a complete waste of time. It was the WORST book I ever read. If it hadan't been a library book or 3/4 of my grade this semester I would have thrown it out the window. I have never heard of the author and I don't know anyone that has ever heard of the book. It was just HORRIBLE!
