A Victorian Tale of Theater & Romance | The Captain's Daughter by Jennifer Delamere


Warm-hearted Victorian romance brings 1880s London to life.

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. A talented musician and singer, she feels immediately at home and soon becomes enthralled with the idea of pursuing a career on the stage. 

A hand 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.

This new-to-me author quickly grabbed my attention with her Victorian tale of working-class London and theater and romance. Jennifer Delamere’s main characters, Rosalyn Bernay and Nate Moran, prove likeable amidst their challenging circumstances, and I easily found myself rooting for their success. Faith plays an important role throughout the story, guiding the underlying theme and spurring encouraging character growth. It’s heartfelt and historically captivating, and I enjoyed the experience of reading The Captain’s Daughter. A book easy to recommend to fans of historical fiction, it has certainly peaked my interest in Delamere’s series, London Beginnings. I can't wait to read more.
