Publisher's Summary

At a time when thousands are fleeing tyranny to find a home in the New World, 17-year-old Kate Elyot witnesses a tragic accident that orphans a little girl named Emily. Suddenly the sole guardian of a child she's never met, Kate's only guide to the girl's surviving family is a signet ring and a letter sewn into Emily's dress addressed to Kate. Unsure of whether she has walked into a fateful calling or a fatal coincidence, Kate is determined to get Emily home but is unprepared for the journey awaiting her.

Captain Anthony Scot will not rest until his enemy Simon Cephas is punished for a crime long forgotten. The signet ring that Emily carries is the evidence Scot needs to convict his rival. He is willing to obtain the ring at any cost in order to destroy Cephas. Can Kate fight to free Emily from those who would use her to destroy her Puritan family? Will her courage sustain her as she is brought face to face with her worst fears, deepest regrets, and a God she cannot bring herself to trust?

Journey of Courage

Kept me on the edge of my seat. Suspense, adventure, mystery and mayhem...Hannah Duggan's book, Dear Kate, has it all. A letter misdirected and Kate takes responsibility for an orphaned child. Can Kate and her cousin keep Emily from those chasing her and get her safely to her guardian? Twists and turns, captivating characters and lots of action will keep the reader's interest. Courage and faith in God are strong themes throughout the book. The audiobook was well done, with the narrator, Felisha Caldeira, giving good voice to each character. A book not to be missed.

Engaging Christian Journey

Dear Kate is an interesting historical fiction that follows the spiritual struggles of its young protagonist, Kate. The narrative is emotionally engaging from the start, a characteristic communicated wonderfully by Felisha Caldeira's narration. While this book could certainly be enjoyed by anyone, it will particularly resonate with individuals familiar with the Christian faith. In fact, I believe it can serve as a great resource for believers who are experiencing their own spiritual struggles.
