Tour & Giveaway: The Shipbuilder's Wife by Jennifer Moore



The Shipbuilder's Wife by Jennifer Moore.
Audience/Genre: Historical Romance, War.
Publication: July 2018.
The day of her parents' garden party dawns bright as Lydia Prescott eagerly anticipates a marriage proposal from a handsome and wealthy plantation owner. The lovely debutante plans to steal a moment away with her beau, but her plans go terribly awry. Instead of her intended, she is joined by a stranger the largest man she's ever laid eyes on. And it is clear Jacob Steele is there for reasons far more sober than the party. With British raids erupting all around them, it is his job to reassure plantation owners of their safety. In reality, however, Jacob is an espionage agent, and the truth is dire: America is on the verge of invasion by the British.
Blissfully unaware of the danger surrounding her, Lydia basks in the glow of her recent engagement. But her joy is short-lived—a surprise British attack results in a devastating wound, and her plans for the future are shattered. Lost in her devastation, Lydia could never dream that Jacob, that giant of a man she met so briefly, would prove to be her saving grace. And with a war raging around them, she may be called upon to save him too.

I am so glad I didn’t live in those times. No air conditioning, no cars, war in my backyard, and the marriages of convenience or for reputation or just because with their being no affection to begin with. I admire Jacob Steele for marrying Lydia. He is a very good person and yes things work themselves out in the book. But it still is a rough road. You have to learn to trust this person and be able to communicate. And then there is everyone's doubts and fears, and these two have some! I love how they work things out! I love how the book ends. I love the talk on the care of the wood on the ship and in Jacob’s home. I love when something that is made is very carefully crafted and loved!

I also enjoyed the fact that I grew up in Maryland and know where all these places are and have visited them. I am sure it was much more forest in those times than all that I grew up seeing. After all, I ate at a McDonald’s last time I was in Bladensburg! And I love the view on the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay. But it is really cool to be able to see everything clearly in my head!

I think Jacob and Lydia are definitely made for each other. They are yin and yang! Jacob is a large looming man who once was an orphaned child who protected the other children and watched them all find homes accepting him and his best friend Alden, His fear is to be alone. But he is afraid to make a stand with Lydia when things go wrong. He just goes back to closing his heart and just silently accepting it. Lydia gives him options several times but they come out as statements and if Jacob continues to do nothing he will lose her. There are a few very tender moments when Lydia is attending to him and she often worries about him. But Jacob is a fool and doesn’t know what to do with his own words!!

And I loved the little trivia at the end. You really should read it! It is a wonderful adventure!

I think a book about Alden will be coming next?? I will definitely be reading that one! Alden cracks me up. He knows how to talk to anyone and he is a natural at it! There is only a hint at something that has happened to him in the past and I want to see him happy and married!!

  3. I agree with you Valerie no one is taking a look at what Doyner is saying. Everyone the keep interviewing is someone from law enforcement, the corrupt system that failed him. Interview someone that says this man has a honest grievance. Suits go on sale throughout the year, but January typically is a slow month for suit sales, so clothiers will lower prices to get you in their stores. When you're shopping, consider all weather wool suits and timeless styles, and remember that, to some extent, you get what you pay for. You probably won't have a $100 suit in your closet four or five years from now, but you may have a $500 suit for as long as you're able to fit into it..

    In my household, we were raised not to believe the mainstream press. But you don want to just listen to one source. And it still that way I feel.

    Perhaps surprisingly, Khiani reckons that the dabbawalas, for all their suspicion of joker shirt new fangled ways, can adapt and survive. "They are intrinsic to the way this city operates, and the one thing you're always going to need is food," he says. "And what the dabbawalas provide is a very cost effective way to get food out there." Indeed, so cost effective that, although Khiani is launching a rival (if much smaller) delivery service, his business will use the dabbawalas' network.

    Success means something different to everyone, and so one player answered, then the next. Some wanted to taste life in the NBA, if only briefly; a few had been sent down and wanted to return. At least one had made it by reaching even the pro game's bottom rung, and another wanted to someday be a coach..

    "My preference would be that players adhere to our uniform rules, both in the NBA and the WNBA," Silver said during his news conference following the NBA's board of governors meetings here Tuesday night. "I think it's a very slippery slope. As to where you would draw the line when it's appropriate for a particular player to use that, use a game, pregame, as a political forum, I think it's a dangerous road for us to go down..
