This book is fascinating. I had no idea that people captured by tribes were sold into slavery?! It probably shouldn't have. History has proven that corrupt people make money off of the downtrodden and others like to have cheap labor at the expense of the health and wellbeing of those they enslave. Sorry, I shouldn't go off on a social thing during a review. :)

So, back to the book. Charlotte is an amazing woman. She is strong and has a good head on her shoulders. She works hard and is determined

If you are a history buff, this might interest you. It ends in New Orleans at the end of the War of 1812.

Charlotte, or Charlie as she’s known in the book, is desperate to find her young brother! Their parents were killed and they were sold off. Charlotte manages to escape. Her brother, Will, is taken by Indians and she hears that he is probably in New Orleans. She is on a quest to find him and she will do whatever it takes to find him. Including to dress as a boy and become a “swabbie” on a ship

I was so excited to read Charlotte's Promise. I love Ms. Moore's historical romances and I think this one was definitely one of her best!

Charlotte Bower has suffered through her parents' murder and being kidnapped and sold by Creek Indians. She is determined to escape her captors and find her brother and while it takes longer than she would like, she finally manages it. She cuts her hair and boards a ship bound for New Orleans, the place she believes her little brother has been taken. L

Jennifer Moore is one of my very favorite authors! She is amazing at writing characters that the reader cares about. And writing a plot that keeps the reader engrossed in the story. I love the way she includes history in her books and makes me want to know more about the specific time period or event she’s telling about. This book does all of these!

This one starts out with Charlotte. She’s on the run. And she’s had to disguise herself as a boy. For most of the book she’s known as Charlie, the Sw

I cannot even begin to imagine the horrors that Charlotte lived through and yet she perseveres to keep a promise to her younger brother in a very creative and dangerous way, as Charlotte becomes "Charlie." She is so resourceful and amazing--definitely a selfless person to admire.

Jennifer Moore always delivers a fascinating story involving a ship and this one really captivated me. I loved the details surrounding Captain Thatchers pride and joy and the duties that the sailors had to perform to kee

This is exactly the kind of historical fiction I love to read. Anytime a book leaves me wanting to know more about a certain time and event in history I know the author has done their job. I knew absolutely nothing about the battle in New Orleans. I've never been there but if I am lucky enough to venture there one day, I will be sure to visit the museums and historical monuments that commemorate this part of the war. The author has an ancestor who fought in this war which made it all so much mor ...more

From page one, Jennifer Moore’s book comes to life with action and adventure. Readers will find this story fascinating, as a good portion of this book takes place aboard a smuggling ship during the War of 1812. This story is about surviving the death of one’s parents, being sold as a slave, the reuniting of siblings, and falling in love. This story also shows the bonds created between ship mates and how they protect one another. Moore brings to life the hardships and devastations, as well as mir ...more

I loved this book. Time was scarce, I hadn't received the copy of the book in the mail yet from the publisher and only had a PDF to read (which I hate reading on my computer), yet I sat down to get started, and next thing I knew, I’d finished. The story was utterly engrossing! Even reading in a despised format, I gobbled it up like a kid devours cotton candy at a carnival.

Charlotte is a tough, yet tender character. I adored her. She's been through the wringer (ya know, those washboard thingy-ma-

I really enjoyed reading this historical fiction book! I had hoped for more romance in the story, but I guess it wasn't meant to be a big focus with the characters.

I absolutely loved the main character Charlie! She was determined, courageous, and wow what a hard worker! I liked the Captain, shipmates and their interactions with Charlie during the voyage and after. Great characters, interesting plot and time period-I really enjoyed reading it!

I received a copy of this book complimentary for blo

A great ending to the series although this can definitely be read as a stand alone. I love Jennifer’s books and they will always have a spot on my bookshelf!

CHARLOTTE'S PROMISE is a story of desperation, hope, and the family a girl (disguised as a boy) finds on a ship. Likable characters, plenty of heartfelt emotion, some danger, and a sweet romance make this a highly recommended read for sweet historical romance readers!

From the beginning I loved these characters! Captain Thatcher had a natural confident and tough bearing, as he should as a captain and smuggler. He was intelligent, strong, rough when he needed to be, caring, and a gentlema

Charlotte's Promise is another wonderful book from Jennifer Moore. I absolutely love her books. They are always full of heart and adventure. I instantly loved Charlotte. Her determination and drive were inspiring. Alden too was wonderful. I really enjoyed how "Charlie" did not fool him and I was glad he knew the secret so early on. This author always delivers an enjoyable story, all while giving the reader a history lesson too.

Charlotte's Promise is another book based in the time period when the War of 1812 was taking place. In another previous book that Moore wrote about this time period, I stated how refreshing it was to read a novel based during this period in the USA. I have always loved history and Jennifer Moore does an amazing job of portraying historical events in her novels.

The main character Charlotte is one I loved from the start. Her determination and courage in the face of hardship and danger made me roo

In Moore's book, The Shipbuilder's Wife, we are introduced to Alden, Captain of the Belladonna. He isn't a main character in that book, but we do get to see that he is a good friend and his adopted family means a lot to him. There is mention in that book of his personal heartbreak, and I was happy to see that Moore gave Alden his own story with Charlotte's Promise.

I was drawn in right away by Charlotte's dire situation. She proved to be brave and determined as she escaped from her captors in an

When I got this book I found the cover to be a bit odd, but I couldn't wait to read it. Once I finished the book, the cover had grown on me. The plot sounded fascinating and it held true. The readers were thrown into the story in such a way that you immediately feel for Charlotte and her position, as well as her reasons for attempting to gain passage to New Orleans. The voyage over was harrowing as several things went wrong. And the adventure continued into New Orleans. This adventure is worth r ...more

Most literature allows for women to completely be disguised as a man with the men none the wiser, however I think Charlotte's Promise is a more realistic approach. It's hard to believe that femininity can completely disappear even with a disguise as frequently as it's mentioned in literature. I enjoyed reading about Charlotte, Captain Thatcher and their shipmates. The characters were interesting and it was easy to get wrapped up in their world. I also liked the backdrop of the War of 1812. It wa ...more
