Marisol Spanish Rose

Marisol Spanish Rose

Marisol Valentin flees Spain after murdering the nobleman who molested her. She ends up for sale on the indentured servants’ block at Charles Town harbor—dirty, angry, and with child. Her hopes are shattered, but she must find a refuge for herself and the child she carries. Can this new land offer her the grace, love, and security she craves? Or must she escape again to her only living relative in Cartagena? Captain Ethan Becket, once a Charles Town minister, now sails the seas as a privateer, grieving his deceased wife. But when he takes captive a ship full of indentured servants, he’s intrigued by the woman whose manners seem much more refined than the average Spanish serving girl. Perfect to become governess for his young son. But when he sets out on a quest to find his captured sister, said to be in Cartagena, little does he expect his new Spanish governess to stow away on his ship with her six-month-old son. Yet her offer of help to free his sister is too tempting to pass up. And her beauty, both inside and out, is too attractive for his heart to protect itself against—until he learns she is a wanted murderess. As their paths intertwine on a journey filled with danger, intrigue, and romance, only love and the grace of God can overcome the past and ignite a new beginning for Marisol and Ethan.

My Review

I liked this book a lot. It was really neat to have the setting of the book in several locations. I learned more about the Spanish culture and that time period. Elva Cobb Martin did a good job creating her characters. I enjoyed getting to know Marisol and Ethan better. I felt like the story flowed wIell and was filled with action and romance.  Elva weaved good solid Bibical truth throughout the story. I think the reader can learn along with the characters valuable lesssons.

I reccomend this book to my family and friends.

I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest review. All thoughts are my own.
