Rebecca DeMarino in her new book, “To Capture Her Heart book coverTo Capture Her Heart” Book Two in The Southold Chronicles series published by Revell brings us into the life of Heather Flower.

From the back cover:  In an uncertain time, she faces a choice that will change her life forever

It is 1653 and Heather Flower, a princess of the Montaukett tribe, is celebrating her wedding feast when a rival tribe attacks, killing the groom and kidnapping her. Though her ransom is paid by an Englishman, she is bound by her captors and left to die–until she finds herself rescued by handsome Dutch Lieutenant Dirk Van Buren.

Still tender from her loss, Heather Flower begins to heal in the home of the Hortons, English friends of her people. Torn between her affection for Dirk and her longtime friendship with Ben Horton, Heather Flower must make a difficult choice–stay true to her friend or follow her heart.

Exploring a unique slice of history, Rebecca DeMarino transports you to the wild land that would eventually become Long Island, New York. 

“To Capture Her Heart” is a romance. It is also a historical novel giving us what life was like on Long Island in 1653. It is also an adventure that will capture your attention and not let go. Did I mention that it is a romance? Ms. DeMarino has written a story that is utterly captivating and filled with the most interesting characters you ever want to meet. Dirk and Heather are just perfect and we come to know them and root for them to succeed at everything they set out to do. Is life easy for them? No. I am amazed at what people had to go through back then and doubly amazed that they came through it at all. However, Ms. DeMarino is highly talented and keeps, not only the story moving, but she keeps it at a high level of quality. I am glad I found this wonderful author and am really looking forward to the next book in this series.
