Prize of My Heart - A Review
Captain Brogan Talvis has been searching for his son for the past three years. When he has a ship commissioned, he not only gains a beautiful ship, but finds his son under the loving care of the ship builder's daughter, Lorena Huntley. Lorena is determined to be a mother to the child that her took in three years before. She holds a dark secret regarding the child. As she spends time with the dashing captain, she finds herself falling in love with him. Yet when she's taken against her will on a ship sailing for England, Brogan must decide which is more important - the son he has just found or rescuing the woman he's come to love.
This is the first book I've read by Lisa Norato. I feel like I've gotten a lesson in sailing thanks to this book. Themes of love and forgiveness run rampant through the course of the book. I enjoyed reading it. I found the characters easy to relate to and the story moved rapidly. It wasn't my favorite book by any means, but it was still an enjoyable read.
I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
