I am new to Jennifer Delamere and her writings, but I’m a huge fan of hers now after reading this book. I was hooked from the very first page and found myself finding excuses to get a way for just a few minutes to read another page!
The action begins within the first chapter and the readers are left trying to decide who in the scene is the good man and who is the bad man. One wants to hurt and one wants to protect. I was wrapped up in the story of Rosalyn and her pursuits of finding safety and making the most of any opportunity given. Despite the dangers she faced, she still pursued her dreams. Nate Moran was just as interesting of a character. Albeit, he wasn’t too fond of the events that had left him stuck in London for a bit. However, when he meets Roaslyn he just can’t keep his thoughts away from her.
Rosalyn has been through so much in her short life. She just longs to see her sister who may have answers for her and can help her figure out her next steps. She just can’t seem to find her way to her quickly enough, though. This has forced her to venture on her own, using her own wisdom.
The title of the book stems from their dad who was a captain and disappeared one day. One sister things he died, one thinks he abadoned them and another isn’t entirely sure what to think. They want to know what truly happened to him, though.
The Captain’s Daughter is a book that I highly recommend to fiction lovers of any genre or niche. It’s a stellar story full of something for everyone. Read more reviews of this book at http://litfusegroup.com/books/the-captains-daughter.
