About the Book:
The Captain’s Daughter (Bethany House, June 2017)
Warm-hearted Victorian romance brings 1880s London to life.
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 Personal Review:
I think have mentioned before on the blog that Historical Fiction was a genre that I hadn’t read much of until the last six months or so, and I have now read several great novels and shared them here with you guys. I am happy to say that The Captain’s Daughter is another great novel I get to introduce you too!
Jennifer Delamere, the author, is new to me, and I am glad I got a chance to read some of her work. Delamere wove an interesting tale that was fun and very easy to read. From the moment I started reading, I loved this book! The characters were so interesting and the Delamere had done a wonderful job of telling their story and making them relatable.
I am a bit of a theater junkie myself and have always loved plays, operas, musicals, and Broadway so when I saw this story revolved around the theater and all the hoorah that goes with it, I was instantly drawn into the fun and exciting book and cast of the theater. It was fun to follow along with the merriment and the lovely romance between the two leading characters.
The Captains Daughter is the first book of the “London’s Beginnings” series and a very good start if I must say so. If you enjoy Historical Fiction then be sure to pick this one up soon because you don’t want to miss out!
