I absolutely love historical Christian fiction books! I especially love books about early settlers, and historical stories that include England, Virginia, or war time era’s!
It begins with the dream of the main character Phoebe Lee who dreams of being a midwife in Loudon County, Virginia beginning in 1813. It was especially cool because her first setting was in Williamsburg, Virgina, a history lovers prime setting! The drama begins when her sister in law requests if Phoebe would become her midwife for her upcoming birth. The problem is, she finds herself on a ship during the War of 1812, heading away from the Commonwealth.
Phoebe finds herself in the company of the obnoxious Capt Rafe Docherty who promises to get Phoebe’s brother in law, Belinda’s husband out of prison in time for the delivery of their baby! The problem is, that Capt Docherty is looking for information for his own personal revenge to the man who he feels, destroyed his family.
Phoebe and Rafe begin to find themselves in an awkward position, with feelings toward each other. Each one of them having their own personal agenda’s, the last thing they need to do is fall in love!
An exciting, twisting theme that will be sure to keep you up late at night! I was fortunate enough to receive a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review by Revell, a division of Baker Publishing. Find this book in your local bookstores or Amazon.com.
