To Capture Her Heart by Rebecca DeMarino

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

It is 1653 and Heather Flower, a princess of the Montauk tribe, is enjoying her wedding feast when her groom is killed and she is kidnapped by a rival tribe and held for ransom. Though her ransom is paid by an Englishman, she is nonetheless left to die in a Connecticut forest--until she finds herself rescued by handsome Dutch Lieutenant Dirk Van Buren. Torn between her affection for Dirk and her long friendship with family friend Benjamin Horton, Heather Flower must make a difficult choice--stay true to her friend or follow her heart.

When Rebecca DeMarino traveled to Horton Point, Long Island, with her mother, Helen Jean Horton Worley, in 1999, passions collided: her love of faith, family, travel, history, and writing. Rebecca's debut novel, A PLACE IN HIS HEART, is a historical romance based on Mary and Barnabas Horton, Rebecca’s ninth great-grandparents. Set in 1600’s Southold, Long Island, book one of The Southold Chronicles will be released by Revell in June, 2014. She lives in the Pacific Northwest and when not writing, she enjoys family and genealogy, travel, reading, running, baking and gardening. Rebecca is represented by Greg Johnson of WordServe Literary Agency.

My Thoughts:

When I was asked to read and review this book, I fell in love with the cover and synopsis. I love historicals and since I didn't know much about the native Americans I was excited to learn something about them. I was pulled in with the kidnapping of Heather Flower, unfortunately after that I didn't connect with one of the characters and it felt like there was so much going on I couldn't keep up. 
If you are interested in Colonial history I would recommend that you get a sample from Amazon on your kindle and check it out for yourself.
