The Captain's Daughter Book Review

The Captain's Daughter by Jennifer Delanere

I love good historical fiction novel, especially when it is a clean Christian version of it.

This book is a prime example of this. It touches on the good and bad in life, love and also deceit without getting into the gutter. The characters are believable and sweet without being overly so. The look at theater life in Victorian England was really interesting to me and I learned things that I had not known before.

A Book and a cup of tea

I love how the book touched the lives of the amazing Gilbert & Sullivan and their operettas and wished the book came with a soundtrack so I found myself playing the music from them while enjoying the book.

I loved also the look at the amazing George Müller, his wife, and his orphanages. What amazing faith he had and the way he was able to share that strong faith with those in his charge. I would have loved to have the opportunity to know the man and have my own life and faith be influenced by his amazing faith. I have found myself doing more research on the man and his life, his children that he cared for and the faith that he instilled in them. Wow, it makes me feel like a slacker reading about it.

"Captain, I have known my Lord for more than fifty years and there is not one instance that I have failed to have an audience with the King. Get up, Captain, for you will find that the fog has gone." George Müller to the captain of the ship he was traveling on as they were delayed by fog and was going to make him miss an appointment.
