Overview

Elsa Anders's dream of marrying Peder Ramstad is about to come true. But as this independent, strong-willed woman discovers her own creative gifts--a love for travel, painting, and the sea--can she find happiness with a captain who insists upon leaving her safely on shore?

Leaving their home in Norway behind, Elsa and Peder embark on a new life in  with their closest friends, including: Kaatje Jansen, a woman seeking a new beginning for the sake of her marriage and for the child growing within her; Elsa's sister Tora, a sly young vixen who knows exactly what she wants--and exactly how to get it; and Karl Martensen, a man torn between his friendship for Peder and a forbidden, secret love for Elsa, a man tormented by emotions that threaten to ruin them all.

From the gentle hills of Bergen, Norway, to the rocky coast of Camden, Maine, and across the crashing, danger-filled waves of the open sea--experience an epic saga of perseverance and passion, faith and fidelity, in the Northern Lights series: the new historical series by Lisa Tawn Bergren.

    Plot: There was a lot going on this book, but not too much to be

    Plot: There was a lot going on this book, but not too much to be overwhelming. First, there is the immigration to America that is experienced by all of the characters in the book, then you have the stories that unfold for each, once they arrive. None of the stories are complete however at the end of the book, but such is life, I suppose. I assume that the stories carry on into the next two books in the series.

    Characters: I really enjoyed the depth of the characters in this book. The entire story line really is based on the history that each character has in Bergen, and how they develop as they continue their lives in America. Each character is so different from each other, yet they flow so fluidly together to tell the story that they really all share.

    Themes: I would consider the main theme of this book to be "starting over". Each of the characters longs for a new life in America and they are all starting over from something. Elsa and Peder, for example, are newly wed and beginning their new life together; Kaatje seeks a fresh start with her husband and the arrival of their child, and Tora seeks a new adventure in America.

    Emotion: This book was very fast paced. While the emotion wasn't deep-seated, I did find myself engaged in the story. The more I read, the more I wanted to know what was going to happen to each of the characters, and how they were going to be affected by the next tragedy or joy that they faced.

    Overall: I found the book to be slow at first, but as I continued through, I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the way that while each character had their own story and experiences, they were all so intricately weaved together. I also found the story to be very unpredictable, which kept me engaged, almost every time I made an assumption about what would happen next, I was wrong. While part of me wishes the stories would have come to a nice little conclusion, I am anticipating reading the next books in the series to find out what happens next.

    ---I received this book for free from the publisher for this review.---

    Captivating

    The characters in this book fix in your mind and it is hard to put down. I now have the second and third in this series as the saga goes on. The author does a great job in the sequels. There is not a bunch of repetition, but a fulfillment of the lives as they go on.
    good read.

    First in Northern Lights Trilogy is full of ripping romantic drama

    The Captain's Bride by Lisa Tawn Bergren is the first in the Northern Lights Trilogy about Norwegian immigrants to the US in 1880. Elsa Anders has been in love with Peder Ramstad since they were children together back in Bergen. The day of their wedding, they, along with several neighbors, boarded his ship destined for Camden, Maine to begin a new shipyard there. Tora, Elsa's strong-willed younger sister, stows away onboard and begins an clandestine relationship with with Soren, who is married to pregnant Kaatje . Karl, Peder's first mate and best friend, is trying to fight his feelings for Elsa, but close confines only bring them to a boil. I'm not always a fan of historical romances, especially Christian ones. They all too often are saccharine and predictable, but Bergren's tale of these tempestuous Norwegians is compelling and fantastic, a true joy to read. Peder struggles to juggle his roles as husband and captain, while Elsa tries to practice submission without giving up her dreams. Tora is feisty and unforgettable , and while her actions are at times shocking, she's never boring or a stereotype. Even though this book is over ten years old, it's incredibly relevant. I will definitely be seeking out the rest of the books in this series!
