    " 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! "

    " 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. "

    " This book was slow at times but good enough to follow through with the next in the series. I did feel as though there were a lot of unanswered questions at the end. It was a bit of a let down to have no answers to the characters dilemmas that you've grown so interested in. I didn't believe the reader should absolutely have to pick up the next in the series to have answers to the really important questions. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tina | 1/17/2014

    " Good story and characters, but much too slow. It was also disappointing to be left without some of the main plot points being resolved at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 EJ MACK | 1/14/2014

    " Did not finish book... Just not my kind of read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judie | 1/13/2014

    " I am not a fan of historical romance novels at all. These books are EXCELLENT!!! "

    " Very boring, I didn't finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 12/24/2013

    " I thought I'd try out this local author (she's from Monument). Nothing fabulous, but a good enough storyline that I'll probably pick up the next book in the series at some point. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Fabian | 12/18/2013

    " Good, I appreciate Zchristian literature, but what was great was the development of h characters in this book. I look forward to reading book 2 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mickie | 12/18/2013

    " I read the Trilogy of the Northern Lights series. If you like adventure stories based in late 1880, this is a good read. Her other books are also very good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leah (packfan20) | 12/13/2013

    " This was a struggle to get through. If I wanted to hear about a guy professing his love to his best friend's wife and kissing her, I would have watched a soap opera. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle Louisa | 11/12/2013

    " It was intense and amazing!!!! I love history.... So this historical fiction was fantastic!!! Loved!!! "

    " Good book. Very long read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susann Smith | 8/30/2013

    " The beginning of a well-written trilogy involving world travel of body and spirit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Walker | 5/13/2013

    " I read this book for the first time many years ago. I don't normally read a book more than once but this one I have read a few times because I liked it so much. It was the first book that made me laugh out loud and actually tear up. It is a great story and told well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 5/13/2013

    " We have a large inspirational/Christian romance section in our library system, so I thought I'd give it a go. This has all the action of a normal romance without any actual bedroom scenes. I missed the sex. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 4/22/2013

    " The only fault I found in this book, was the ending. I had to immediately pick up the sequal. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethany | 4/9/2013

    " Peaked my interest -- didn't realize when I first chose it that it was a "Christian" novel, but it was still really good, which was a plesant suprise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 4/9/2013

    " Not great writing, pretty predictable. But an interesting story line and characters that you want to know what happens to- so I read all 3 in the series. Nice to have characters that use faith and answers to prayers to help them through life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 3/20/2013

    " The book was going along well. Kept my attention, and then, out of nowhere, it just ended. Turns out that it's part of series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 2/10/2013

    " I read the second book in this series and enjoyed it, so I thought I would try the first. Again, an enjoyable novel to read. Clean, Christian book. I know I do not have to worry about coming across explicit sex scenes with this author. She just tells the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 12/19/2012

    " Loved it, can't wait to start the next in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 9/26/2012

    " A friend loaned me all three of The Northern Lights Series. Once I got into the book it was hard to put down and I couldn't wait to read the second on the servies Deep Harbor. "
