Product Description

Review

Cheryl Cooper has crafted a novel of epic proportions, incorporating a cast of truly memorable characters. Her meticulous research captures the conditions at sea on a British man-of-war in the early part of the 19th century, and her account of the challenges facing a naval surgeon is particularly engrossing. Written in a flowing, graceful style, Come Looking for Me is a satisfying book that is difficult to put down. A wonderful read! (Dr. Walter Hannah, physician; former midshipman with the Royal Canadian Navy)

Come Looking for Me is a fine offering and unexpected romance set amid the fierce naval battles of the United States and Great Britain during the War of 1812. Cheryl Cooper succeeds in creating an intriguing cast of characters and making us care about their ultimate fate. Her extensive research and detailed descriptions of life on the sea add an unyielding realism to a story rich in action and suspense. (Anne Millyard, co-founder and former editor of Annick Press)

A high sea of a good read, roiling with history, cannon blasts, and storms of the heart...I couldn't put it down. (Karen Hood-Caddy, author of Tree Fever, Flying Lessons, Wisdom of Water)

Hours of meticulous research has resulted in a faithful often brutal depiction of life on a British man of war. This story mixes a generous amount of mystery, humor, action, suspense and unexpected romance into a colourful tale of high seas adventure. (Garrison Community Council 2011-08-01)

Format: Paperback
A first novel for Cheryl Cooper and she immediately hit her stride. You won't be able to put this down, a fabulous piece of Historical Fiction. You will come to love Emily the young English woman, who's adventure is painted for you in poignant detail; and loath Mrs. Kettle the ships laundress, who pulls out all the stops to try and make Emily's life pure hell. Fortunately for Emily the ship's Doctor Braden, Biscuit the cook, Fly Austen, and other shipmates immediately become her allies.
Cheryl makes you feel as though you are aboard the ship with Emily, truly engaged in her adventure. Book Clubs would have a great discussion around the hardships faced at sea, the courage of the young seamen and how little we know about our own history.

I cannot even begin to say how completely fabulous this book is. I picked it up on a Saturday morning and was instantly sucked into a world of naval ships, mystery, tragedy, courage, love and everything else that this novel stands for. I could not (and did not) put the book down until I was finished. The mark of a truly amazing read for me is when, upon completion of the novel, I remain wrapped up in the world of the characters, and find myself thinking as if I was, in this case, Emily. I am beyond proud and happy to say that I have still not come back to Earth, after reading this novel. Thank you for producing such a clever, emotional and inspiring piece of work. You are a literary goddess!

First off I want everyone to know that I absolutely loved reading each of the books. I had a really hard time putting them down. The stories where fast paced, action packed and certainly kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved the fact that they where short chapters that kept you wanting to read more. Both stories take place in the time period of the War of 1812. The stories are about a young lady named Emily who had wonderful and scary adventures on and around the sea. I am on pins and needles awaiting the third book. When you have read the first two books, you will also be filled with excitement in anticipation of Emily's next adventure. Enjoy!!

I took Come Looking For Me to read aboard a Caribbean cruise. The good news is that I loved the book's high seas adventure, salty marine characters and War of 1812 historical setting. The bad news is that I was missing out on current shipboard amenities like swimming pools and theatre performances until I had finished reading. I couldn't put it down. In fact, my partner had to "come looking for me." I'll be sure to devour Cheryl Cooper's sequel Second Summer War before my next cruise."Come Looking for Me: A Novel

Format: Paperback
This is a thoroughly enjoyable novel of intrigue, adventure, and poignant romance. The engaging, feisty heroine and a cast of memorable characters, including a somewhat fictionalized brother of Jane Austen, capture the imagination and keep you enthralled. Illuminating a fascinating but lesser known aspect of the War of 1812, this well-paced story, rich with historical details, brings this era of seafaring war to life. I look forward to the sequel!

One of the best historical-fiction novels that I've ever read! A perfect blend of action, romance, and very loveable characters. Come Looking for Me draws in its readers with a rich storyline that has a very cinematic feel to it. In fact, this book should be adapted into the next HBO TV series.

Great adventure on the sea. Most Canadians know little about the War of 1812 battles that took place on the Atlantic between the Brits and Americans so this is a real eye opener. She weaves a good tale.

Cheryl Cooper has written a masterful story. If you enjoy history and you enjoy fiction - you will very much enjoy "Come Looking For Me." I wasn't able to put it down. It is very evident that Cooper researched the era and has nailed down her facts perfectly.
