One year ago Charlotte Bower's life was ripped apart when Creek Indians attacked, killed her parents, and separated her from her young brother—now, she will stop at nothing to find him. After a year of captivity, she has finally made her escape. Her search will begin in New Orleans, where captives were taken after the raid. But how to reach a city hundreds of miles away? As she watches men boarding a waiting ship, Charlotte formulates a bold plan: if it's men they need for the ship's crew, it's a man they'll get. Taking on her childhood nickname, Charlie, it is all too easy to gain passage on the New Orleans-bound vessel. Easy, that is, until Charlie is caught . . .
From the moment he sets eyes on the new deckhand, Captain Alden Thatcher knows one thing for certain: Charlie Bower is no man. But for reasons of his own, he keeps her secret. As their journey progresses, however, the voyage is increasingly ill-fated. With danger ever present, Charlie and the captain find themselves relying on one another in ways they'd never imagined. As they draw closer to her goal, Charlotte is faced with the most perilous adventure of all—an adventure that may risk her heart.
Charlotte's Promise is another book based in the time period when the War of 1812 was taking place. In another previous book that Moore wrote about this time period, I stated how refreshing it was to read a novel based during this period in the USA. I have always loved history and Jennifer Moore does an amazing job of portraying historical events in her novels.
The main character Charlotte is one I loved from the start. Her determination and courage in the face of hardship and danger made me root for her. Realizing the true danger she was in only makes her situation more pressing. Of course I loved that Captain Alden Thatcher is the main male character in this book. Readers first met him in the book, The Shipbuilder's Wife. Alden is the perfect hero in that he was kind, loyal, and protective to Charlotte and those in his service. As the story progresses both Charlotte and Alden have secrets that will finally come out. With all of the dangers found out on the sea, this slow build romance is sweet and does have a happy ending. I truly enjoyed this book and know that lovers of Historical Romance will enjoy it too.
