In this season of life, it isn't often that I get to sit and read a book for my own enjoyment.

When I was approached to review The Pirate Daughter's Promise by Molly Evangeline my first response was to say "No thank you."  BUT upon learning that Molly is a homeschool graduate, my curiosity got the best of me.

Set in the early 1700's in the Caribbean, The Pirate Daughter's Promise is not only a story of adventure, but of faith, chivalry, love and A LOT of grace!

The author spins a tale around Skye  Mc Henry, an orphaned daughter of a reformed pirate.  During the 11 years she's without close family she comes to depend on William, a fellow orphan and a blacksmith/carpenter known as Matthew.

Through a series of events, she and her closest friends find themselves on a high-seas adventure woven around a common thread - treasure Skye's father had left for her before his death and the grace of God which she depends upon for survival.

There are many twists, turns and surprises in this story.  A few swashbuckling sword fights, wholesome romance/friendship that leads to courting but more importantly many times where the characters pray for the Lord to intercede and times where their faith is shared with those in need.

All in all I was pleased with the plot of this book.  It moved at a good pace and was filled with time period appropriate adventure and mystique.  It was encouraging to read the characters walking out their faith in a real, down to earth fashion.  I can  recommend this book for high school+ readers.

Also in this series are:   Every Tear, A Captain's Heart, and Finding Faith.  THIS particular series I will continue to read.

You can read more about Molly at her Blog.
