Be transported to 1880s London, and meet a talented musician and singer, in the new Victorian romance novel from Jennifer Delamere, The Captain’s Daughter.

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 that is presenting the most popular show in London.

Meanwhile, London holds bitter memories for Nate Moran 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.

Jennifer Delamere’s newest novel is a perfect mix of historical romance and drama.The Captain's Daughter, Jennifer Delamere

Once Rosalyn takes a job in the theater and sets the story in motion, the reader is drawn further in until reaching the end.

The characters battle both outside forces and themselves to come to the place they need to be.

Rosalyn’s and Nate’s relationship develops in a mature way. And the love triangle didn’t completely drive me crazy, which in my world is really saying something.

I also thoroughly enjoyed the historical details sprinkled throughout the novel. They gave it such a realistic feel and really brought the setting to life.

It was just as interesting — to me, anyway — to see what hasn’t changed as much as what has in the theater world.

The inspirational message was an important part of the story, but it is woven in organically and not thrown at you.

Delamere has done a wonderful job of weaving an entertaining and inspiring first installment to the London Beginnings series.

I can’t wait to see what comes after The Captain’s Daughter.
