The Captain’s Bride kicks off with a wonderfully uniue setting Bergen Norway The main characters are preparing to immigrate to America and two of them are getting married I love books that begin with weddings and Elsa’s wedding was rich in Norwegian tradition and family togetherness I also love shiphigh seas settings and while a good portion of the book is spent in transit to America it took me through the characters’ start in Maine and Montana as wellThere were a lot of point of view characters A lot Elsa Peder Karl Tora Kaatje and I think even Soren and Trent were POV characters for a few scenes I’m not bothered by two or three POVs but than three and I start skimming the non favorites Another thing that bothered me–important scenesdecisions the story had built toward seemed cut out near the Third Act and I was left catching up with the characters’ lives months afterward I’m not a huge fan of time gaps via “Part One” “Part Two” etcKarl and Kaatje were my favorite characters Karl is in love with his best friend’s new bride Being a new Christian he wants to do the right thing and remove himself from temptation but can’t bring himself to walk away from his captain and their dream of building ships together in Maine His struggle made him real to me and I uickly found myself looking forward to his “stage time” Kaatje is pregnant and longs for her handsome husband to be faithful to her She believes America’s Montana frontier will give them a fresh new start and plenty of space from other females My heart broke for Kaatje She struggles to keep hope alive as disappointment and heartache knock her down again and again and clings to her faith to carry her throughThough there is plenty of adventure throughout The Captain’s Bride I wouldn’t label this story as fast paced During the long voyage to America the conflict took on a “soaps” flavor and for me that slowed the story in different parts making the good action and tension seem sporadic I would recommend this book to those who enjoy Historical Fiction and readers interested in fiction that will give them a taste of Norwegian culture

A thoroughly enjoyable historical novel about a group of Norwegian immigrants moving to the US It was especially heartwarming to hear how proud they were to learn English and to be truly American The author did a great job of capturing my interest for the story and the characters but left enough dangling so that I can't wait to get the next volume of the series The characters were real subject to all the normal human faults and struggles but they also showed how their faith shaped their lives
