You just can't get tired of Molly Evangeline's books! ^_^ I'm happy to report that I started reading her historical series, and have recently finished the first book, The Pirate Daughter's Promise!

~ MY REVIEW ~
I find that I just really like Molly Evangeline/Jaye L. Knight's writings. I read first her MAKILIEN series, then Resistance, the first book for her new fantasy series. And now I just finally finished the first book, The Pirate Daughter's Promise, in her historical series. I really enjoyed it, even with it being her first published book, and perhaps not as polished and perfected as her others.
The Pirate Daughter's Promise was a sweet, exciting adventure with a deep faith theme, tender romances, and little mysterious mixed in. Pirates abound, dangerous ports are visited, fantastic ships sail the seas. Skye is a lovely young woman of eighteen years who has lived at the orphanage since her beloved, former pirate father was hung. She works hard in exchange for a roof over her head; and is sometimes treated cruelly by the orphanage owners, and her wealthy grandfather, who refuses to acknowledge her existence. The thing that holds her together is her faith in God, and also His gift to her in the person of William. But Skye's fairly predictable life is about to change forever. A massive treasure is sought. A kidnapping ensues. An old pirate friend is found. An unimaginable secret is about to be uncovered.
I liked the range of characters. From Skye, to Will, to Matthew, to Kate. There's always secondary characters that tug at your heart in Molly's books! *smiles* I also like the pirates theme, which is softened by faith. This book somewhat reminds me of MaryLu Tyndall's swashbuckling pirate stories! Although, The Pirate Daughter's Promise is definitely written for a younger audience. It was completely enjoyable, sweet and a relatively easy read.
Anyway, I lovely story overall. I am excited to read the next book in this series, Every Tear, and all the others! *smiles*
