Review of Donnach's Daughter by Nancy Pennick

The Clan MacLaren #2

Donnach's Daughter by Nancy Pennick

“Yes?” He breathed in her ear.
“Ye never finished yer story.”
“I would like to never finish my story with you,” he whispered.

Glynis MacLaren longs to see the world, not get married and live a suffocating life in Scotland. She leaps at the chance to escort her sister to the colonies. She soon finds out the larger world is just as constraining for a woman. People expect her to marry and follow certain protocol. Then she meets the ship’s captain. He stirs feelings in her that she never knew she had. The trip across the ocean is filled with the adventure she sought, love she didn’t expect and a sudden heartbreak when the journey ends.

Genre: Historical Romance

Pink Satin Romance Sensual


Not a fan of historical romance, I have to say Ms Pennick quickly changed my opinion. Once I started reading Donnach's Daughter I could not put the book down.

Glynis, heroine of this page turning story, is a feisty independent woman. An eighteenth century feminist before her time, determined not to marry. I just loved her.

However, while accompanying her sister and brother-in-law on a voyage to make a new start in America, Glynis finds herself victim to two admirers. Neither of which Glynis is the least bit romantically interested in. To her surprise, she only has desires for one man. The dashing captain of the ship, Aaron Redding, who she falls deeply in love with.

The story was very well written, and flowed. I became so engrossed in the storyline, and the characters that seem to come alive, at times I felt I was a participating bystander.



5/5  A delightful love story, alongside twist and turns, also not forgetting the jollity and sadness that made this novel a pleasure to read.

I was given a free copy of the book for an unbiased review.
