BOOK REVIEW: Fiona, The Navigators Daughter (A Romance Novella) by Ronnda Eileen Henry

Set in the medieval-like world of Penruddock, Fiona is a romantic historical fantasy. Sixteen-year-old Fiona and her mother Anwen meet a little girl at a convent hospital. The little girl is named Alfreda and she's the daughter of an earl who is off at a war. She's also recently lost her mother and torn by grief. Fiona cheers her up with puppets and they become good friends. Later, Fiona meets Alfreda's nineteen-year-old brother, Adrian, a knight who was also at the war with his father and saw him die in battle. Adrian and Fiona have an immediate liking for each other and a shared interest in mathematics and science. But Adrian is now an Earl and Fiona is only the common-born daughter of a ship's navigator. Can their friendship ever become the love that each, in time, wishes it could be?

I cannot give this book enough praise. Henry’s writing shines in Fiona, The Navigators Daughter. Everything that makes a Ronnda Eileen Henry novella’s award-winning is in all in this book.

Fiona is her best heroine by far. I just loved her! Fiona is a woman ahead of her time with her love of mathematics and science. When she befriends the young daughter of an earl who has an older brother with the same love of science and mathematics the young girl suggests its kismet. Fiona says no due to a commoner cannot marry one of nobility. When Fiona finally meets him sparks do happen, yet they both must hide their feelings for surely one of nobility cannot marry a commoner…can they? You must read the book to find out! Bravo is the book!
