    1.

    2. Jerri Hines writes a wonderful, compelling story. I have read another of her series, The Winds of Betrayal-truly a riveting time in history and so well depicted in how she presents the emotion behind the events of the time.Just finishing The Governor’s Daughter, I’m awed by her fierce story line and plot. Many these days can relate to the same kind of precarious position people in Virginia found themselves. Communities can be polarized by political and religious inclinations--enough to die f [...]

    3. This book is set at the beginning of the Revolutionary War and tells the story of a young woman whose father is the British governor of South Carolina. He sends her to England for her safety where a whole lot of bad things happen to her, she returns to South Carolina where even more bad things happen to her, after which she returns to England where she suffers even more bad things. That's about it as far as the plot goes. Here are the reasons I gave it one star:1. There are numerous typos, incor [...]

    4. Could have been so much more. This book had the makings to be a 5 star book, yet the writing style and lack of romance doomed it. I was only able to finish the story by flipping through pages and speed reading. Many have commented that the story was full of angst (which it was) , yet it reminded me of my favorite book "Royal Seduction" by Jennifer Blake , which is also a story full of angst, violence and heartbreak. The difference is that Royal Seduction is also full of romance, which makes the [...]

    5. Historical and romantic all wrapped up in one extremely good bookThe British against the Americans! Love and war abounded! Who is behind the badness of this wonderful love and yet war story?

    6. I am almost 50% done with the book . I cannot go any farther. It's just "too much." Too much of everything going wrong. Too much of the dramatic. It's one thing after another. I never did feel connected to the main character so her problems just annoy me and I have no empathy for her.

    7. Living in fearJerri Hines has done a excellent job on this story about the ups and downs of this woman life and finding love in two men. Living in a world of two different types of l.

    8. This is an epic saga of one woman and the men and trials in her life. It is well written and intriguing, but drags a little. Cathryn is truly a tortured soul, no matter what she does her life keeps ending in sadness. The twists that involve the men in her life are simply mind boggling. William, Jake, Phillip, Edmund and Reggie left my head spinning. It's definitely entertaining, somewhat engrossing, a bit long and a lot dramatic.

    9. Shouldn't a romance really make you want to be the heroine? All I could think was how much it sucked to be a woman then. The fickle romances and conniving relatives provided no respite from the misery, and the writing didn't especially transport me.

    10. I thought the plot was good but it had too much filler and was way too long. I really didn’t feel the connection between Cathryn and Jake the author doesn’t give me enough romance to really make this a romance story. There are a lot of twists and turns which really lost me with so many different villains it was hard to keep up with them all. It was an interesting read but would have been much better if it would have been a little simpler. Cathryn and Jake did spend enough time together for m [...]

    11. I read 37% of this book:} Thank you kindle for giving me the exact location. I could not read anymore. The governors daughter started out ok but quickly went down hill. A couple that falls in love before we even know them well is not a good idea. I could not invest in these two at all. The author presents a strong American but when the family pushes her to do things she caves too easy. The worst part of this book is the writing. The idea is great, the execution is awful. There were a couple of s [...]

    12. MehFor some reason in a lot of Hines books, the likeable characters die which leaves me always at the crossroads of whether to continue or not. I disliked Cathryn. I found her spoiled, whiny, and I was confused as to what made almost every man fall in love with her. Seriously. Every. Man. Mary and Sumner were my favorite characters so I have no desire to read on. There was hardly any build up for Jake or Phillip. Phillip had more personality than Jake which made me become attached more but I cou [...]

    13. What a bookThis book is what a book should be. I seriously couldn't put it down. Stayed up all night just to see what's going to happen. Cathryn Is sent to England to visit family she never seen. She doesn't want to go but went and that's where everything takes a turn. You would think this is going to be like any other romance book but it's not. So many twist and turns. I'm crying, I'm getting mad, I'm smiling seriously this book was fantastic!!!!! On to the next book.

    14. Cathryn leads a privileged life before her father decides to send her to England for the season to stay with her deceased mothers’ relatives. She is escorted on the long ship voyage to London where she meets lots of people on the way. Politics and war intervene and Cathryn is betrayed and abused, her trust in people is shattered. The story takes many twists and turns throughout the book. I would have liked actual dates to help me place the time period.

    15. ExcellentA new author for me and one I very much enjoyed reading! This was looking at the revolutionary war from the loyalists side and a glimpse of English society at the same time. Good read. Am looking forward to reading the next in this series.

    16. Good story!Many twists and turns but all ends well! Many villains, some you never suspect! Good period story set in the time of the American Revolution

    17. Terrible!Terrible writing. Sentences that didn't make sense, words used incorrectly I couldn't follow and gave up a few pages in. Don't bother.

    18. Liked story but it would benefit from a bit more polish. Quite certain I didn't mark all that annoyed me. 2.5 stars.

    19. The Governor's Daughter is the first book in the Winds of Change series by Jerri Hines. I don’t know how to start of this review any other way than saying it was such a good book. I loved the characters and they were very well written, I loved the plot and the constant change. I will say that I got to a point where I wondered if it would end. It kinda went on a little longer than I thought but that is what happens when you have twists and turns in a book and I liked it because it kept me on my [...]

    20. I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review." for reading deals. Cathryn was raised by her father. She was to return to England to spend time with her mothers family. Her father has a lieutenant under his command escort her, we have betrayal, so many villains and honestly I wouldn't have picked either of her two supposed love interest. The men were not really redeemable. I am glad to not have been a woman born in that era.

    21. Not GoodThis book started out fine but then it was down hill from there. After a while, the leading lady got on my nerves; then there were some things written that should have been edited out and since they weren't, it made this a long boring story. This book also reminded me of another story I read several years ago.

    22. Awful readingÇould not finish this book. Made myself read the first 4 chapters and couldn't stand another paragraph. The editing was awful. Not only were there spelling mistakes, but there were errors in sentence structure as well. However, the most egregious errors were inaccuracies in cultural norms.

    23. Enjoyable and engagingA good historical story. Lots of twists and turns. I wanted to yell at the heroine, Trust No One! Recommended.

    24. Great Read!!I loved the book!! The twist in the end is what got me!! Did NOT see that at all!! I like that it wasn't long and drawn out !! Very enjoyable!
