Review of The Captain's Daughter: Christian Fiction from Jennifer Delamere

The Captain's Daughter is the first in a new series- London Beginnings by author Jennifer Delamere. It was an easy-to-read romantic Christian fiction read. It wasn't one of my very favorites, but it was an okay read and would make for a quick and easy summer read.

About the Book...


From the book's description- 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...


The story's characters were likable, although not very complex. There was a little in the way of thoughts and feelings that revealed the characters, but there was more action and dialogue that carried the story along. I tend to prefer less action and dialogue and more introspective character development.

I enjoyed the historical setting of the story. The time period- 1879 London- and the historical characters of Gilbert and Sullivan that feature with their musicals made the story's setting a fun one.

All in all there wasn't really anything deep or moving about the book. But it was an easy read and a sweet romance. I give it three stars and a G rating for content. You can find the book on Amazon here.
