Litfuse Review: The Captain's Daughter by:Jennifer Delamere

 The Captain's Daughter (London Beginnings #1)
About the Book:
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 which 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.

An 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 Review:
The Captain's Daughter is all love story and tragedy and it is okay by me. A great way to spend a hot summers day under a shade tree reading all about London. When I was a young girl I just knew that London was cold and foggy all the time mostly because of all the movies I watched that took place in London. So for me a book like this on a hot day is just perfect!

 The Captain's Daughter is about a young woman by the name of Rosalyn Bernay, that has found herself in the need of money and rather quickly. She finds a job in the theater which is a place that she feels quite at home because she has a talent all her own. She becomes fascinated with all the talent there.

 What fiction story would be perfect without some love and romance? That's where Nate comes into the picture. He is in the regiment and it is something he takes very seriously. He is recovering from an injury and wants to get back at it as soon as possible. He is very anxious to get out of London but soon fate steps in to change his plans because he meets the lovely Rosalyn Bernay. After meeting this beautiful woman, she has him second guessing everything.

 A sweet lovely romance set in London in the late 1800's. Perfect read for the beach!
