Book Review: The Captain's Daughter

The Captain's Daughter (London Beginnings Book #1) by [Delamere, Jennifer]The Captain's Daughter is the first book in London Beginnings. I enjoy historical fiction. In this book, Rosalyn is leaving her employer, but ends up losing everything she owns, ends up in a brothel and employed at the London theater. While there she comes across a man, Nate, who has his own story. He was part of the army, serving in India when he suffered a hand injury. He goes back to London, his home. While there he agrees to fill in for his brother as a stage hand, as his brother recovers from a broken leg. He knows he will return to his regiment and to his future. The he meats Rosalyn.

I enjoyed this novel but I felt like the pace needed to settle down. the beginning felt rushed and then, partway through the book, I felt like it began to drag. The relationship between Nate and Rosalyn was lovely. It was a joy to share in their relationship.

I also enjoyed the theater story line, including the author bringing Gilbert and Sullivan into it.

For those that enjoy historical romance, I feel like this book is a good choice.

I was given this book by Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
