Item description for The Pirate Daughter's Promise by Molly Evangeline...
Overview Skylar McHenry knew the love of her parents and a doting grandfather until her sixth year was marked by the tragic loss of her mother. When her father's secret past as a pirate came to light, father and daughter fled to a life at sea. Although Daniel McHenry's life had changed and he now robbed pirates to return the stolen goods to their rightful owners, his ship was captured by authorities, and he was hung for piracy. Skye grew up in an orphanage, little more than a servant and shunned by everyone around her. Now a young woman, each day Skye faces is marked by some new struggle. Her only hope has been to rely on her heavenly Father's care and comfort and the solace of her best friend Will, who has become more than dear to her. Just when an unexpected encounter with her grandfather gives Skye a small glimmer of hope that things might change in her favor, her world is shattered. She is awakened in the night by cannon blasts. Pirates storm the orphanage, drag her away into the night, and force her aboard their ship. The cruel captain's intentions are clear. He will extract from her, through any means necessary, the location of the hidden treasure rewarded to Daniel by those whose belongings he had returned. For Skye to divulge the location would mean breaking the last promise she made to her father. She's certain she never will, but what happens when the lives of those dearest to her are at stake? The Pirate Daughter's Promise is full of daring high seas adventure, sweet, wholesome romance, surprising discoveries, unlikely new friends, and the rewards of trusting in God even when life seems impossible.

This a great book! Mar 29, 2009
The Pirate Daughter's Promise was a thrill seeking novel about a young lady who made a promise to her pirate father at a very young age. Alone in the world, Skye is kidnapped by a pirate that felt her father owed her his treasure. Friends of Skye knew that she had been kidnapped and set out to find their friend. Matthew had a friend that was a pirate and they convinced him to find Skye. Skye is tortured by Kelley, the pirate, to get her to tell him where the treasure. Skye held her ground and would not tell her. One of the slaves on the ship made friends with her. Kate and Skye were thrown off the ship during a storm. They washed up onto shore separately. They soon found each other and were soon found by Skye's friends. It did not last for long though. Kelley found them and took all of them hostage. Kelley found out that Will was Skye's weak point and finally convinced Skye to give him the location. Once he was given the location, he dropped everyone off on an island, except Will. Shortly after they left, Kate's ship found them. They quickly sailed to the island to stop Kelley from taking the treasure. During the fight with Kelley and his crew, someone showed up, can you guess....you will have to read the book.

Skip It Feb 14, 2009
This is a story about Skye McHenry, daughter of a "Robin Hood" Pirate that has promised her father, upon his death, not to reveal where he has hidden his treasure. The book is very basic writing with religious undertones. When reading this story, I felt more like being at a Sunday School or Bible Study., i.e., "Well, then, let's hope God answers your prayers" "He has so far." Skye looked at Kate, wanting so badly for her to know God's love. "The storm was one of His answers. He saved both you and me from Kelley just as I asked Him to." I'd rather be here (island) than with Kelley, and I believe that God will provide a way off this island." "At least God cares about everyone, no matter who they are." I'm not opposed to reading a book about God, his teachings, etc., but I wasn't prepared for it in a story about pirates and treasure. I was disappointed to find out that the book is not what I thought is was going to be. I am contemplating not wasting my time finishing this book.
Great Family Reading! Aug 10, 2008
A delightful tale of high seas adventure, faith and perseverance, and a young girl's steadfast honor for her earthly father and love for her Heavenly Father.
Orphaned at a young age, Skye McHenry's life seems destined to drudgery and hopelessness, but for the love and care of a boy, Will James, also orphaned. Her life takes a drastic turn when she is kidnapped from the orphanage by the merciless pirate, Francis Kelley, for the knowledge she possesses of a hidden treasure. Kelley will stop at nothing to wrench the secret from Skye--and Skye is equally determined to resist Kelley's tortures, for there is a promise to keep. Sail with Will, Captain John Morgan and the crew of the Good Fortune as they pursue the infamous Kelley in a quest to rescue Skye. Turn after turn, twist after twist await you until the final showdown between Will and Kelley, when the most unexpected twist of all bursts onto the scene. And through it all, God's overriding faithfulness and protection over His loved ones endure.
Classically narrated, The Pirate Daughter's Promise is an ideal book for extended family reading. Cluster the kids on the bed and transport them to a time when pirates ruled the seas, but not the hearts of men--or the heart of a young woman. They'll hang on every word as Ms. Evangeline takes them from storm-ridden seas to sun-baked deserted islands, dingy orphanages to wealthy mansions, and the depths of man's greed to the heights of God's grace. Your only problem will be settling their protests when it comes time to close the cover for another evening.
Molly Evangeline is a recent home-school graduate who has been writing since she was eight years old. This is her debut novel--but you can bet it won't be her last.
Loved It!!! Jun 11, 2008
Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down. You feel the emotion in the characters, wanting them to succeed and the villian to be defeated. I also loved the historical aspect. The author can really paint a picture. There are many twists and turns with a delightful ending.
