To Capture Her Heart by Rebecca DeMarino
I really enjoyed reading Rebecca DeMarino's To Capture Her Heart. It is book number two in her Southhold Chronicles. I think one of the most interesting facts about this series is the fact that DeMarino has dug into her own family history to bring her novels to life.
To Capture Her Heart is a story of two people whose hearts have been broken. Benjamin Horton loved anna, but she married another, does he dare pursue Heather Flower? Heather Flower is only free to marry because she is a young widow and still in love with her dead husband. To complicate matters more, Dirk Van Buren a Dutch Lt. also loves Heather Flower. I love the way that DeMarino handles the brokenness of all three young people. She truly creates an emotional triangle and I found myself alternately cheering for Dirk and for Benjamin. By the end of the book, I was totally enthralled and I have to admit I did stay up past my bedtime to find out what happened. I am looking forward with great anticipation for the next installment.
I was given the book by the author in exchange for my honest opinion, but I attest that all thoughts are my own.
