The Pirate Daughter's Promise: Book Review and Giveaway

I received an email back in January from Molly Evangeline, homeschool graduate and author of the Pirate and Faith series.  She asked if I would be interested in reading Book 1 of 4 of the series, The Pirate Daughter's Promise.  Being that she was homeschooled and now a young Christian author, how could I say no?!

Let me say that I am very glad I accepted her offer!  After the first chapter I was immediately drawn into the story.  Halfway through I felt connected to the characters and couldn't put it down...I had to find out what was going to happen next.  There are twists and turns throughout and a surprise ending (where I found myself gasping out loud).  But what I love most about this book is that the characters put their trust in God, even when there seems to be no hope. 

Orphaned at a young age, Skylar McHenry grew up as little more than a servant and shunned by everyone around her because of her reputation as a pirate's daughter. Each day Skye faces is marked by some new struggle. Her only hope is to rely on her heavenly Father's care and comfort and the solace of her best friend, Will, who has become more than dear to her.

Just when an unexpected encounter gives Skye a small glimmer of hope that things might change in her favor, her world is shattered. She is awakened in the night by cannon blasts. Pirates storm the orphanage, drag her away, and force her aboard their ship. The cruel captain's intentions are clear. He will extract from her, through any means necessary, the location of the treasure hidden by her father. For Skye to divulge the location would mean breaking the last promise she made to him. She's certain she never will, but what happens when the lives of those dearest to her are at stake?

The Pirate Daughter's Promise is full of daring high seas adventure; sweet, wholesome romance; surprising discoveries; unlikely new friends; and the rewards of trusting in God even when life seems impossible. 



My Thoughts:   I truly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading the rest in the series.  I also think my daughter, who is already an avid book reader herself, would enjoy it and plan to have her read it when she is ready (I'm sure she will want to tell you about it too)! 

Find Out More:   Molly started writing The Pirate Daughter's Promise when she was just 15.  Now at 22 she has completed three more in the Pirates and Faith series.  If you would like to read more about Molly and her books, check out her website.  You can also find her on Facebook and her blog.  The Pirate Daughter's Promise is available in paperback for only $9.99 or for your Kindle for only $2.99.
