I received a copy for review. All opinions are my own. I just finished reading The Shipbuilder’s Wife by Jennifer Moore. I have been a long time fan of Jennifer Moore because she writes fantastic, engaging stories packed with character, descriptions, and plots that pull you in until the last page.
One of the things I love most is that she takes a character from the story you are reading and uses them to write her next book. So all the books are connected in a way, but you can read them independently of each other and still not have any problems following everything about the story. This just gives you some extra background information about the characters and their stories.
In the book The Shipbuilder’s Wife, the story focuses on Lydia Prescott and Jacob Steele. Lydia is the stunning daughter of a wealthy plantation owner. Jacob is the owner of a shipyard. Through a series of events caused by the British Army invading parts of the coast, Lydia acquired a life-changing wound and everything she had planned for her life no longer exists. Jacob ends up being her saving grace, or is it the other way around?
The story pulled me in from the very beginning. It didn’t drag or go on too long with any one part, but the story kept moving nicely and carried a lot of emotion with it. The Shipbuilder’s Wife is a beautiful love story – clean (I would let my 11-year-old read it) and packed with such great messages about trust, happiness, and opening your heart.
ABOUT THE SHIPBUILDER’S WIFE
The day of her parents’ garden party dawns bright as Lydia Prescott eagerly anticipates a marriage proposal from a handsome and wealthy plantation owner. The lovely debutante plans to steal a moment away with her beau, but her plans go terribly awry. Instead of her intended, she is joined by a stranger—the largest man she’s ever laid eyes on. And it is clear Jacob Steele is there for reasons far more sober than the party. With British raids erupting all around them, it is his job to reassure plantation owners of their safety. In reality, however, Jacob is an espionage agent, and the truth is dire: America is on the verge of invasion by the British.
Blissfully unaware of the danger surrounding her, Lydia basks in the glow of her recent engagement. But her joy is short-lived—a surprise British attack results in a devastating wound, and her plans for the future are shattered. Lost in her devastation, Lydia could never dream that Jacob, that giant of a man she met so briefly, would prove to be her saving grace. And with a war raging around them, she may be called upon to save him too.
