Mary Ellen Jenkins is a woman of rare courage and experience. One of only four females licensed as navigators and steamboat masters on the Western Rivers, she is accustomed to finding her way through dense fog on the Mississippi. But when she travels north for the first time in her twenty-nine years, she discovers herself unprepared for the havoc caused by a vaporous shroud off Sleeping Bear point. And navigating the misty shoals of her own uncertain future poses an even greater threat to her peace of mind. Self-confident, skilled, and devoted to his duties as Second Mate aboard the Lake Michigan sidewheeler, Lily Belle, Thad Grant regrets his promise to play escort to the petticoat navigator the instant he lays eyes on her plain face. Then his career runs aground. Can he trust this woman to guide him to safe harbor, or will the Lady Reb ever be able to overcome the great gulf between them?

About the author (1991)

Donna adopted Michigan as her home state in 1971 when she moved from a small town outside of Rochester, New York. She began penning novels in 1982 while working full time for an electronics firm in Grand Rapids. She resigned from her job in 1984 following a contract of-fer for her first book. Since then, Thomas Nelson Publishers, Zondervan Publishing House, Guideposts, and Bigwater Pub-lishing have published her novels. Her husband, Fred, a former American History teacher, shares her enthusiasm for history. Together, they visit historical sites, restored villages, museums, and lake ports purchasing books and reference materials for use in Donna's research. Donna has lived all of her life in states bordering on the Great Lakes. Her familiarity and fascination with these re-markable inland waters and her residence in the heart of Great Lakes Country make her the perfect candidate for writing Great Lakes Romances(r). When Mackinac and the Great Lakes Romances(r) series first launched in May 1989, the author and her husband and two dozen friends and relatives from Michigan, New York State, and Illinois visited Grand Hotel to celebrate, enjoying the Victorian ambiance and superb cuisine
