    Mr. Cole takes a boat to Australia during the gold rush. He finds little gold, so he goes back home. As it happens, he gets on the same boat he came out on, the 'Lady German.' Whereupon he meets Eva Denison. He does not immediately fall in love, but he does eventually. She is being escorted back to England by her step-father, Jorges Santos. The boat is not just taking some folks back to England, but has a secret cargo, and, as it happens, catches fire and is lost at sea. Mr. Cole, it appears, is the only survivor of this tragedy. There are some hints of the coming events, but none that explain the full extent of what is occurring. The story explains Mr. Coles survival and his life in London, where Mr. Cole is feted and praised as the survivor to distraction. Etc.,etc., the events happen and everything turns out for good because others have evidence and wit to realize what is happening, so save the day. This not a swashbuckling tale, or detective fiction, but it could be one or the other to my mind. It was inetesting to hear.

    In good ways. The style of writing in old fashioned but very descriptive and in fact it "is" Interesting and relaxing to read.The story is not rushed. The characters are well developed. The plot of the story moves along nicely and did keep my interest. I have been known to put a book down and not finish if it is moving too slowly and not going anywhere. This book was not like that at all. I recommend this book to those who can enjoy a well told story that is adventurous and romantic in an older writing style, but a good tale none the less.

    This is a mid-nineteenth century story of adventure on sea and land. It's certainly weak compared with Stevenson or Melville, but is fine for those who enjoy or study the period.

    Ok, this was the WORST book I've ever tried to read. Yes, that's right, "tried" to read. I didn't finish it because I couldn't get beyond Chapter 5 and I finally just gave up!! Good thing it was cheap. Do NOT waste your time.
