You can tell that Molly was still quite young when she started writing this book. The first chapter lays the ground work for the whole book, and contains quite a bit background information that really could have filled an entire book. It was a little difficult to get into, but once I got past the first chapter, I was hooked! I do many book reviews, and am usually reading three to four books at any given time. This book almost demanded my attention from early on, and I soon abandoned my other books to focus fully on The Pirate Daughter's Promise. I couldn't put it down, and fell in love with the characters. It didn't take long for me to become emotionally invested in the outcome of the story. You won't get any spoilers from me, but I will say that it is quite the surprising ending. :) The path to salvation is clear in this book, and I commend Molly for her ability to let God shine through in her story. I look forward to reading more form Molly Evangeline!

When Molly agreed to do an interview for Homeschool Authors, I went to her website to do some research. When I saw that The Pirate Daughter's Promise was only 99 cents, I decided to buy it. I am so glad I did.
From the gripping opening to the final, touching page, I was enthralled with Skyler's story. Orphaned and with only two friends in the world, Skyler leads a hard life. She keeps a secret her father had made her promise not to reveal until she finds someone who loves her and she trusts completely. A secret concerning a hidden pirate treasure.
I was skeptical when I began this book, as I have never really liked pirate stories. As a lover of history, I had learned too much about pirates to ever think of them as good guys in films or books. I was delightfully surprised at this book. This was not about a "Christian" pirate, nor was piracy shown as acceptable. The good captain and his crew hunt pirates and return the stolen goods.
I loved the faith and morals displayed in The Pirate Daughter's Promise. Prayer not only is a normal part of life, it works. The romance will stand up to the highest moral standards. This book is very wholesome and refreshing.
If you are looking for a book full of adventure that is faith building, The Pirate Daughter's Promise is a wonderful choice.
As the first book, a lot of information is presented right away and Molly does a lot of explaining as the book progresses. I cannot say that this is her best book, however, it is a stepping stone to her second book, "Every Tear," which is exceptional and highly recommended.
I encourage anyone who like historical fiction, a pinch of romance, and a large dose of lovable characters to read "The Pirate Daughter's Promise" and to continue on through the series. The role of God and Scripture in the story is edifying for any reader of any age! This is the most wholesome fiction I have read in a long time. Thank goodness it's the first in the series!
Great job Molly! Readers: dive in and enjoy!
The Pirate Daughter's Promise was a sweet, exciting adventure with a deep faith theme, tender romances, and little mysterious mixed in. Pirates abound, dangerous ports are visited, fantastic ships sail the seas. Skye is a lovely young woman of eighteen years who has lived at the orphanage since her beloved, former pirate father was hung. She works hard in exchange for a roof over her head; and is sometimes treated cruelly by the orphanage owners, and her wealthy grandfather, who refuses to acknowledge her existence. The thing that holds her together is her faith in God, and also His gift to her in the person of William. But Skye's fairly predictable life is about to change forever. A massive treasure is sought. A kidnapping ensues. An old pirate friend is found. An unimaginable secret is about to be uncovered.
I liked the range of characters. From Skye, to Will, to Matthew, to Kate. There's always secondary characters that tug at your heart in Molly's books! :) I also like the pirates theme, which is softened by faith. This book somewhat reminds me of Marylu Tyndall's swashbuckling pirate stories! Although, The Pirate Daughter's Promise is definitely written for a younger audience. It was completely enjoyable. —Nothing nagged at me or made me feel the least bit uncomfortable.
So... I read the version with a more plain cover, brown tones and a ship on the sea.Read more ›

This book takes readers on quite the adventure! I truly enjoyed it. I have to say, it’s definitely a Christian Pirates of the Caribbean, but without Captain Jack Sparrow. Read morePublished on June 21, 2014 by Amazon Customer
