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 and Sullivan? H.M....

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 came from e...

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 once set foot 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!) as well the glimpses b...

When I requested this book for review, I didn’t actually know it would have mention of George Muller’s orphanage, but finding that was a nice surprise. Ro...

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.

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 interesting to me. At ti...

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 reviews on th...

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 her characte...
