A Captain's Heart Review

Wealth and social standing mean nothing to Captain Kyle Bryden. To his family, however, they are everything. For years it has driven Kyle and his family apart. He longs for understanding from his parents, but most of all he yearns for them to accept the truth behind his faith.

When his father sends him on a voyage to collect two family guests, it only complicates matters, particularly Kyle's growing desire to marry and make a home. He finds himself caught between pleasing his parents and living according to what he believes is right. As some things begin to change for the better, could a secret no one is expecting be enough to tear at Kyle's heart and destroy the love he has found?

A Captain's Heart, the continuing story of Pirates & Faith, meet new friends and revisit old ones while seeing the importance of patience and never giving up on those we love because all things are possible with God.

In A Captain's Heart, the focus shifts from Skye and Will to several new characters, namely Kyle, Travis, Elizabeth, and Mariah. At first, I was a bit disappointed to find that Skye and Will were only background characters, but by the end, I found I loved the new characters just as much, if not more. A Captain's Heart tells a different story from that of the first two books, but I liked how Molly was able to connect them and continue to tell what happened to Skye and Will.

There is a lot of family strife in A Captain's Heart, because Kyle and Elizabeth are strong Christians, and their parents are very opposed to Christianity. As always, Molly's characters are well developed, and the story is very moving. Kyle is chivalrous, which I love, and willing to do what is right, even if it means he will likely be disowned. And the "secret no one is expecting" was certainly unexpected to me. A Captain's Heart is more of a character story than an action story, but there is still action, and there is definitely always something happening. I really enjoyed the story, and I wish there was something more about Kyle and Mariah.
