The Captain’s Daughter by Jennifer Delamere (Review)

 

As a fan of Jane Austen, I enjoy reading about all things England. Jennifer Delamere’s London Beginnings series is one I’m sure to finish after reading the first in the series, The Captain’s Daughter. This Victorian-era novel focuses on the middle class as well as life in the theater during this time.

When Rosalyn Bernay flees her employer in order to escape a worse situation, she has no idea the trouble that awaits her. Despite her naiveté, she manages to evade a cascade of trials and meet someone who is willing to help.

Through a series of events, Rosalyn meets then reconnects with Nate Moran, a military man on leave who is working at the theater in order to save his brother’s position.

Review: High as the Heavens by Kate Breslin

It is rare that a story—whether a TV show, movie, or a book—takes me by surprise. I can usually guess the twists before they are revealed. Yet, occasionally, someone manages it and I enjoy the ride even more because of it.

In High as the Heavens, Kate Breslin managed to surprise me more than once. As Eve Marche navigates her job as a nurse, her duties to her family, and her secret missions for her country, she leads a full life. The first surprise comes quickly when a face from her past appears in Brussels (sorry, no spoilers but I can say I liked this twist to the story).

Review: Heart on the Line by Karen Witemeyer

What a unique and fun read from Karen Witemeyer! Those who read No Other Will Do (the first book of the Ladies of Harper’s Station series) already have an introduction to many of the lovable residents of the town.

In Heart on the Line, readers get a peek into the lives of telegraph operators. And what a peek it was!

My favorite part of this book was the secret language Grace and Amos had developed in their careers. Another fun angle was that Amos isn’t your typical romance hero. He prefers riding a bicycle over a horse, wears glasses, and is mocked by women in his hometown.
