At the helm of a tall ship stands Mina Paradis. She may look young, but Mina's spent a lifetime serving her family and country. Now she's tired, so tired, of following orders and watching her friends grow old and die while she never ages a day.
Desperate to escape the slow suffocation of a circumscribed life, Mina prepares to break the terms of her indenture. Such treason threatens to propel her through an intensely personal struggle to save herself, spare her crew, and face an adolescence long-delayed.
The Captain's Door opens the Mina Paradis series with a unique exploration of obligation and independence set in an alternative 19th century. Fans of character-driven fantasy, like that of Ursula K. Le Guin, will appreciate the slower pace and literary build.

Shirley's retirement book reads
I didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised to find it adult and read very well by K. Orion Fray.
Such bravery for a woman of that time period.
Great clear specific enunciation!
The tenacity of the character from beginning to end.
Yes, especially to friends who enjoy sci fi/fantasy with some steam punk.
I liked how the story explored the relationship between mother and daughter. I'm interested to see how it develops in the next books in the series.
