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.
The Shipbuilder's Wife is another wonderfully written book by Jennifer Moore. I absolutely love her books. Jennifer has a talent for writing in the historical fiction genre. I have read and loved all of her books, and when I read a new one, it becomes my new favorite. I have passed her books to my daughter, who is a huge fan of Jennifer's. As always, I was quickly drawn into the story with the engaging plot and enchanting characters. I enjoyed the relationship between Lydia and Jacob. I really enjoyed Lydia's journey.
5 out of 5 stars.
