PRIDE OF JUSTICE by Andrea K. Stein- A Reader's Opinion
A Reader's Opinion
Pride of Justice is an enjoyable and romantic love story.
The author did a wonderful job of sharing plot points gradually, giving the reader a chance to more deeply grasp the story. Her writing style made me feel like someone was telling me a great story. Character details and landscape descriptions, especially surrounding the village, provided for wonderful visualization, and drew me deeper into the book. The writer also did a great job with the characters’ personalities.
There is so much entertainment value in Pride of Justice, with plenty of excitement to keep the reader engaged.
Rachel and Chris are sweet and charming together. Their courtship took a little time, but when their chance came, the romance blossomed beautifully.
As a note, I appreciate how the writer hinted at Rachel’s age, which helped make the romantic scenes more comfortable to read.
Pride of Justice
Miss Rachel Berry, the adopted daughter of Freetown missionaries, wants to re-connect with her African mother’s family. She does not trust the Royal Navy, or Captain Halloren of the African Squadron. Her lying English father was a former naval seaman who jumped ship to join the lucrative African slave trade.
Capt. Christopher Halloren, 3rd son of a baron, transports a group of slaves he rescued to the missionary school in Freetown before attending the prize court to see if the judge will rule in favor of him and his crew so they can get on with the work of patrolling for slavers. The last thing he needs is to get involved with a beautiful mission teacher who seems hell-bent on putting herself in harm’s way with the illegal slave traders swarming at the fringes of Freetown.
Can they escape the destiny Society assigns them, or will they create their own?
