To Capture Her Heart - A Book Review
The book is set in the mid 1600's and Heather Flower, an Indian princess is celebrating her wedding feast, but before the actual wedding takes place her tribe is attacked. Her groom is killed and Heather Flower and several of the Indian woman are kidnapped. Heather Flower is tied up and left to die. Lieutenant Dirk Van Buren rescues Heather Flower and forms a strong bond with her.
Heather Flower is dealing with her grief and her dear friends, the Hortons, are helping her out in her time of need. Ben Horton has strong feelings for Heather Flower and hopes that they can have a relationship together, but Heather Flower's heart is leading her towards Lieutenant Buren. She must choose between staying loyal to her friend or following her heart.
Historical romance is my favorite genre and I love when an author intertwines a fictional story with historical events. I found it very interesting that the land in this story is what eventually became Long Island, New York!
I have to say I struggled a little in the beginning of this book. I had a hard time getting into it, but I stuck with it and it wasn't long before I found myself thoroughly enjoying this tale!
