Prize of My Heart By Lisa Norato

I received this book from Bethany House Publishers for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book.

Book Description:

Rich in Historical Detail, This Is a Romance that Delivers!

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.
 
 
My Thoughts:
 
Prize of My Heart is the first book by Lisa Norato I have had a chance to read and I enjoyed it.  The story takes place in the year 1815 in Massachusetts.  Prize of My Heart is a Christian Fiction Historical Romance with some twists and turns in it.  Lisa Norato writes with authority about the time period, boats/ship building, and sailing.  It is apparent in the details that a lot of research went into this book and that Lisa Norato has interest in these things.  The characters are very interesting and some are definitely not what they seem. Most of the characters in this book are deeply rooted in faith and live their lives that way. Others found faith that had been lost years before.  I enjoyed this book but found myself getting lost in details.  I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Fiction especially stories with a nautical theme.  I look forward to reading more of Lisa Norato.
