Thank you to Simon and Schuster for this review copy!
What I thought:
The Captain's Daughter is a most interesting story- I loved the sound of it but in the end I was more attracted to the synopsis then the actual story. I couldn't get into the story properly and got easily distracted when reading it; the storyline dragged a bit and then sped up a bit at times, but overall I didn't enjoy it. The writing of Leah Fleming was very hard for me to enjoy and get lost in.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend it to people I knew liked this kind of story and who I knew liked the writing style, but equally I wouldn't recommend it to a lot of people. It's the kind of book, I think, that will suit as many as it will not...
The story of two women and a lifetime of change is one to try and see if you like... you'll either be captured or disappointed, but it's for you to find out which!
