The Captain’s Daughter by Jennifer Delamere
About the Book: When a series of circumstances beyond her control leave Rosalyn Bernay alone and penniless in London, she chances upon a job backstage at a theater that is presenting the most popular show in London. A talented musician and singer, she feels immediately at home and soon becomes enthralled with the idea of pursuing a career on the stage.
A hand injury during a skirmish in India has forced Nate Moran out of the army until he recovers. Filling his time at a stable of horses for hire in London, he has also spent the past two months working nights as a stagehand, filling in for his injured brother. Although he’s glad he can help his family through a tough time, he is counting the days until he can rejoin his regiment. London holds bitter memories for him that he is anxious to escape. But then he meets the beautiful woman who has found a new lease on life in the very place Nate can’t wait to leave behind.
My Thoughts: When The Captain’s Daughter arrived I could tell immediately that it was the book I would like. The characters are deep and full of life, so easy to root for. I love the plot, that isn’t dull any of the time. While The Captain’s Daughter is 340 pages it is a book that you won’t want to put down. For sure a weekend read. If you like An Amish Summer, Book Review then you’ll want to read The Captain’s Daughter.
