Overall Impression:

It's 1895, and spunky Marguerite Westing is thrilled to discover that her family will summer at Lake Manawa! Escaping her boring suitor, Roger, Marguerite stumbles upon two new loves---sailing and her instructor, Trip. But when her father's gambling threatens to ruin them all, will she marry Roger to save her family's name and fortune?

Making Waves is a unique story about a young woman named Marguerite Westing who's only desire is to have a little fun instead of being cooped up all day doing what a proper lady should - sewing, gossiping, and sipping tea. When her father sets up a summer vacation on lake Manawa, it seems to Marguerite that her dream is coming true. She gets to escape the pursuit of boring Robert, the man her mother wishes her to marry, and have fu
n on the lake at the same time. But when she arrives at the lake, she discovers a new passion - sailing. Women are normally not permitted on boats, so Marguerite must find another way to learn to sail which involves sneakery and deceiving her mother, suitor, and the sailing instructor she is quickly falling for, Trip Andrews.
But when worst comes to worst, she learns of a terrible family secret, and Marguerite's world tumbles out of control. Will she be forced to marry Roger, the very man she has such distaste for, or will she be able to follow her heart and marry the man who shares so much in common with her?

This book was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed it. There were a few minorly suggestive things in it, but nothing that kept me from reading it, or even close! All in all, it was a very good book with a great lesson in being honest, and the consequences of lying. I also liked how in the beginning Marguerite tried to use the fact the God was okay with her lying since He understood why she was doing it, and by the end that was proven very untrue.

I really enjoyed the book and highly encourage you to read it. It was a great story! :-D Purchase Making Waves for just $10 here

Whoa! I wouldn't do well with not being allowed on a boat bec I'm a woman. I'd dress like a boy if I had to! But I'd rather make my opinion known as to why woman are capable on boats and try to board one!
