In an uncertain time, she faces a choice that will change her life forever. {{Book Review}} To Capture Her Heart by Rebecca Demarino

It is 1653 and Heather Flower, a princess of the Montaukett tribe, is celebrating her wedding feast when a rival tribe attacks, killing the groom and kidnapping her. Though her ransom is paid by an Englishman, she is bound by her captors and left to die--until she finds herself rescued by handsome Dutch Lieutenant Dirk Van Buren.

Still tender from her loss, Heather Flower begins to heal in the home of the Hortons, English friends of her people. Torn between her affection for Dirk and her longtime friendship with Ben Horton, Heather Flower must make a difficult choice--stay true to her friend or follow her heart.

Exploring a unique slice of history, Rebecca DeMarino transports you to the wild land that would eventually become Long Island, New York.

"A masterful weaver of history and heritage, Rebecca DeMarino laces tender love stories with vibrant threads of history and hope, wooing the heart and waking the soul in this rich New World saga."--Julie Lessman, award-winning author of The Daughters of Boston, Winds of Change, and The Heart of San Francisco series

*My Review*
To Capture Her Heart is the second book in The Southold Chronicles series. You can read this book as a stand alone, and do not need to read the first book before this one.

I have to be honest, I had a hard time getting into this book at first, but once I got past the first few chapters I found myself really enjoying the book. It is a historical romance
set in the mid 1600's. The Indian Princes Heather Flower is celebrating her wedding feast, but before her wedding something happens! I won't ruin the book and say what happens, 
but I did want to mention that the land in this story is what eventually became Long Island, NY! I thought that was pretty neat.
