Book Review- Captive Hearts by Kelly Miller

An absolute treat for any Jane Austen fan! Kelly Miller’s retelling of Persuasion opened my eyes to the story from Captain Wentworth’s perspective and gave me a new appreciation for him. The narrative is beautifully told in a style that conveys the language and period of the Regency era. I loved that Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice had a featured role in the story. The plot starts out much the same as Austen’s novel, but a clever twist of fate sends the story in an unexpected direction. I was not expecting the plot complication that occurs in the final act, but it made for an exciting climax. If you love second-chance romance and seeing more of your favorite Persuasion characters, then give Captive Hearts a try!
