Book Review - Prize of My Heart (Lisa Norato)
I took this with me to my daughter's softball tournament. I tend to have 2-3 hours of downtime during each day, so I figured I could start on reading this. Ummmm, Wrongo Ringo! I couldn't put this down. I even was sneaking reads when the innings changed during her games, sometimes going a little too long and getting caught by my husband when my daughter was up to bat or made a play that I missed. :-)
This was an excellent read, a captivating story, and I highly recommend this book. The characters were vividly developed, and you found yourself going back and forth sympathizing with first one side, then the other. The conclusion was just as it should be.
Add this to your TBR (To Be Read) List.
An unsolved mystery separates ex-privateersman Captain Brogan Talvis from his lost son--his only living relation, his only family. Shortly before her tragic demise, his wife abandoned their infant to strangers, refusing to reveal the child's whereabouts. Now, three years later, Brogan has discovered the boy at the home of a shipbuilder's daughter, Lorena Huntley.
Lorena guards a dark secret about her young charge. She finds herself falling for the heroic captain who has come to claim his newly built ship, unaware his motive for wooing her is to befriend the boy he plans on reclaiming as his own--until the day another's evil deceit leaves her helplessly shipbound, heading toward England.
As the perfect opportunity to reclaim his son unfolds, Brogan is haunted by thoughts of Lorena in her dire circumstance, and he is forced to make a heartrending choice between his child and the woman who has begun to capture his heart. But only his unselfish sacrifice can win him the greatest prize of all--love.
