    Jul 31, 2017
    Despite one?s initial impression, this novel isn?t a seafaring yarn. The heroine of Jennifer Delamere?s Victorian inspirational romance is the daughter of a ship?s captain who went missing at sea years earlier. The title also refers to a character from the Gilbert & Sulliva...

    Life has a way of taking a different direction than originally planned. This book set in Victorian England illustrates that sometimes the change in direction can be a blessing. Rosalyn Bernay is a young woman who grew up in an orphanage. She has courage and strength and a deep love ...

    I didn't expect to enjoy this book as much as I did! I was looking forward to reading a new-to-me author, but wasn't sure how I felt about the Victorian time period and theater setting since I haven't read much in either. I think the characters were so likeable and the conflict mostly ...

    My Thoughts: First let me say that the cover is beautiful. It was because of the cover that I requested this title to review. And the back cover caught my attention as well. It made me want to read this book. That said, I struggled. I struggled more than I usually do when reading....

    The Captain's Daughter focuses on one of the three daughters of a sea captain who is believed lost at sea. When their mother died, all three daughters were placed in an orphanage (based on the real orphanage founded by George Muller) in Brighton. Rosalyn, the eldest, has now aged out o...

    3.5 stars. I loved the historic tie-ins of George Mueller, and Gilbert & Sullivan! I also loved the fascinating peek into theater life towards the end of the 19th century. The only reason I don't give it 4 stars is because I didn't really sense any real chemistry between the ma...

    3.5 Stars THE CAPTAIN'S DAUGHTER is a heartwarming story about one of three sisters who sets off into the world with high hopes to find that only through God and kind people can she find her way and possibly love. The setting is interesting, as are the characters. The story is stead...

    Imagine being a young lady in a rough London city. Where you were fearful and scared of even a shadow. Now imagine a knight in tarnished armor showing up to aide and love you. Sounds pretty good,right? This begins the love I found for this stunning novel. Full Review: https://biblio...

    A spectacular start to a promising new series. I felt that special thrill of discovery a reader gets when she embarks on what she knows is going to be a memorable fictional journey. It was anticipatory delight from the very first page! I mean, what's not to love -- a bit of Dickenish o...

    The Captain?s Daughter by Jennifer Delamere is the kind of story that wraps around you like a warm shawl and makes you wish that you could ? for a brief moment anyway ? join the characters and their lives in progress. The references to George Muller (one of my faith heroes!) a...

    "The Captain's Daughter" by Jennifer Delamere is not at all what I expected; it is completely different and exceeded my expectations! This book is the first book in the "London Beginnings" series. I have not read any of Ms. Delamere's work before but I love this time period and the plo...

    Nice start to the London Beginnings Series. I especially enjoyed the Prologue which set up who the main characters will be for each book in the series. The Captain's Daughter is about the oldest sister, Rosalyn. How she came to be in London was quite adventurous and set out for a suspe...

    3.5 Stars ?We can not keep dwelling on the past. We must look ahead. Remember Mr. Muller?s admonition that God will always meet our needs.? -TCD When I requested this book for review, I didn?t actually know it would have mention of George Muller?s orphanage, but finding tha...

    This was a good book, but the title is driving me crazy. "The captain" in question is not even really in the story and it has nothing really to do with sailing. So there definitely could have been a better title. I really enjoyed the historical aspects and the character development, ho...

    Readers of Victorian historical romance novels will absolutely fall in love with Jennifer Delamere?s story The Captain?s Daughter. It is about music and singing and life on the stage with Gilbert and Sullivan. So readers that enjoy not only reading Victorian era novels, but enjoy m...

    by Andrea Renee Cox The premise for this book really intrigued me, as did the title. I was disappointed that the title barely had anything to do with the plot, though. I think there were two mentions, perhaps three, that the leading lady was the daughter of a captain, and she never ...

    4.5 stars I truly enjoyed this new release by a new-to-me author. I kept trying to get a copy through the library and finally caved and bought it, and am quite glad I did, as it's definitely a series I intend to keep reading. I loved the historical show biz parts! I mean, Gilbert a...

    With a new author (to me, anyway), I'm never sure exactly what to expect, but I enjoyed this book. Rosalyn is fairly naive, yet resourceful--which comes in handy when her naivety gets her into trouble. Nate is a kind, gentle hero, still battling his own demons, yet a quiet, protective ...

    I enjoyed this book and the setting of being behind the scenes in a theater. I've not attended very many theater productions in my life but have enjoyed the few I have. So it was interesting to read small details of backstage life and a few onstage moments. :) And as I've read other re...

    The Captain's Daughter This is the first time I have read a book by this author. I enjoyed it. However, I felt it was slow in a few spots. And felt the romance a little lacking. That is until the very end. I loved the ending because it was a HEA. I enjoyed learning a little bit abou...

    A lovely read by a new-to-me author. Jennifer Delamere delivers a story that appeals to my love of the musical theater. Her research into the musical world of the actors, actresses and crew of the original Victorian Gilbert and Sullivan productions was a breath of fresh air. Many of h...

    If you are a lover of historical romance who also happens to have a penchant for Gilbert & Sullivan, you are in for a real treat with this novel. Then again, even if you don?t know a bar of Gilbert & Sullivan?s music there will be plenty to please, because it?s such a uni...

    {3.5 stars} Since my sister shares the same name as the heroine, I knew I had to pick this one up! I was not disappointed-the London and theater setting pulled me in at once. I loved at the British terms used, and the old-fashioned atmosphere! The characters were unique and inter...

    This was an enjoyable read! Nothing stellar, by any means, but rather entertaining. I have some qualms, but I'll get into those later. Lovely Things: - It's set in Victorian London - like yes, please - allllll the theatre stuff - there's also a cat named Miss Bella who lives ...

    Hmmm . . . This was, unfortunately, a bit "meh." Both of the MCs felt rather lacking to me, and while I wanted to like them, there was just something about them that rubbed me the wrong way. Nate was a perfect gentleman and so protective, which I loved, but at the same time, he was ...
