    1 thought on “Unclaimed Heart

    1. Two words: massively dull. If it weren't for the time period, I would not have finished it. None of the characters are particularly interesting, the storyline is null, and the villain is not all that terrifying. At first, Constance shows promise as a level-headed heroine, but when she so willingly begins to believe vicious rumors about her father, and then expands on them in her own mind, it became apparent that she was pretty air-headed. This was only confirmed further when she falls in love wi [...]

    2. If you want to imagine what Unclaimed Hearts is all about think Titanic but with pearl divers and merchant ships—more 18th century. High class rich girl falls in love with lower/middle class working boy in a sizzling chemistry that leaves the reader biting their handkerchiefs for more, more, more! Okay so I went a little crazy with the last part. One thing that I love the most about this book was the different points of views. While everything is the standard third person, each new chapter foc [...]

    3. I really had no idea what to expect from this book, and, I had no idea how much I would actually enjoy it!The Good: Strangely, I really liked the third person point of view for this story. Usually, it makes me feel detached from the characters, but this is not the case for Unclaimed Heart. I loved reading more about Constance, Alexandre, and Constance's father, Henry. It was really interesting seeing all their quirks and thoughts.I, also, liked the romance between Alexandre and Constance. There' [...]

    4. Good for younger teens or if you need something very light as a beach read, but nothing special. It's a really quick read and not very complex. None of the characters seemed particularly memorable to me. Constance's father had some depth but he's still very much an archetype, as were Constance's spoiled, flirty friend Orlanda and Alexandre's cruel master de Locke. Constance and Alexandre both seemed bland, and though their romance was sweet, it just sort of falls into place.The writing style isn [...]

    5. This book was enjoyable. The plot of the story was interesting as well. Though I noticed that things seemed to move a bit fast. I have to say though, Constance was a well though out character. Her dad is a real pain sometimes but that is just what dad's are like sometimes. Orlanda is just a whiny into herslef girl. She just pissed me off sometimes And Alexandre, man, he was a great character. A gentlemen, a friend and aloyal crewmember. Just great. It's just, hard for me to imagine him in real l [...]

    6. The girl on the cover always reminds me of Taylor Swift. I know she doesn't look like her (well, sort of, I guess), but I just have to get that off my mind.Anyway, Constance Blackchurch is an idiot. She never thinks things twice or secondguess herself. And in this book, that is bad. First, she gets on the ship with no backup plan. Isn't she afraid of the outside world? I guess not, because she simply jumps out into the world. Without money. Without the necessary supplies. Without telling her fat [...]

    7. Seventeen-year-old Constance Blackchurch has grown up in England with her aunt and cousin. Her father, captain of merchant ship, has always been away at sea for months at a time, and Constance feels she barely knows him. Her mother disappeared one night when Constance was a baby, and no one has heard from her since. Then, shortly after returning from his latest sea voyage, Constance’s father receives a letter telling him that his wife was seen in Ceylon years ago, not long after her disappeara [...]

    8. Constance and Alexandre come from two different worlds, but a twist of fate brings them together. Constance Blackchurch stows away aboard her father's ship, Good Bess, when he sets off to find her mother, missing without a trace since Constance's infancy. Meanwhile, orphaned Alexandre Sans-Nom, or No-Name, is biding his time to escape from pearl diving for his greedy master, de Locke. The two cross paths when Good Bess encounters de Locke's pearler. Alexandre sails with Good Bess to Ceylon, hopi [...]

    9. (note: i wrote this Feb '12 for my website)has a nice plot, but not for me. I'd say I would've enjoyed it if I was still in 5th/6th grade as every next step in the plot, every next line of every character, is very predictable. It wouldn't be a spoiler if I told you that Alexandre, "a handsome stowaway with a sinister past" ended up with Constance, the main character. The main thing they struggle through is the society's rule for people from different classes marrying. Mr. Blackchurch, Constance' [...]

    10. My Thoughts: I'm not a huge fan of of any kind of historical romance or setting. Usually I just pass them up because I'm more of the in the now type of girl. But this was a very cute book. We meet the main character Constance. She is very likable. Her mother left her father and her a long time ago. Her father wants to find her mother. So does Constance. So she sneaks upon his ship upon departure. She than meets a boy name Alexandre. He is in a much lower social standing than herself and she know [...]

    11. Set in 1799 early 1800's. Constance was raised by her Aunt. Her mother disappeared when she was less than 2 and her father was never home as he was a Ships Captain. On his last visit home he received word that Constance's mother had been sighted years ago in Ceylon and he planned to leave right away to go check the area she was sighted in Constance now a young lady of late teen years decided she was going to stow away on her fathers boat and help him search for her mother. All she knew of her fa [...]

    12. I didn't exactly love this book. I had hoped to fall in love with the characters, but unfortunately I couldn't find myself attaching to any of them in particular. There were some loose ends and to me, a few questionable actions that left me thinking about what was going on with particular characters. But mostly, I felt disappointed with how the book ended. The ending was expected, but I didn't feel very thrilled with the closure - it was more of a "Oh, that's it?" kind of feeling.However, the de [...]

    13. I’ve been reading this one off and on for about a week and finally sat down today to finish it. I did enjoy the story; it was original in some ways and predictable in others. Constance was a likable heroine, easy to relate to and I admired her spunk. I thought the story between her and her father was nice, how she was able to get to know him and see him in a different light. You can’t help but like Alexandre. He was a good leading man with all the right qualities. Constance and Alexandre had [...]

    14. I had high hopes for this book, but I ended up being disappointed. Unclaimed Heart had so much potential to be a great read, but ended up falling short. Usually when I read a book I become engrossed in the story and with the characters, but that just didn’t happen here. I never could completely warm up to any of them. They came across as very flat and a little boring. The story also seemed to move along at a sluggish pace. I expected more action and less predictably. In the end the story didn [...]

    15. I liked this book. It was okay written, and it had a good storyline. The thing that struck me about it was that the characters just didn't seem that well formed. They could have been better. Alexandrae is a pearl diver. He can hold his breath far longer than anyone else. His hope is that he will one day be able to buy a passage home to France. But when he meets beautiful Constance that hope changes.Constance is the daughter of a wealthy merchant. When she was younger, her mother disappeared. Her [...]

    17. This is the description since it's not here : In the warm waters of the Indian Ocean Alexandre dives for pearls - but they are not his to keep. His talent are far greater than the ability to hold his breath longer than all the other divers. He is an artist, and when he meets the young and beautiful Constance Blackchurch he also finds hope that one day, his life will be different.This book was the first that I had read which was back in time rather than now or in the future*gasp*I will be looking [...]

    18. I absolutely adore this book. I read it for the first time a few years ago when I was in a hurry and just grabbed something random off the library shelf. And I'm really glad I did.After I returned the book, I remembered the story line but never the title until one day I saw the cover in an op shop and I had to grab it. The Pearl Hunters chronicles a great adventure in life, love and acceptance for Alexandra, Constance and even her father. It is a really enjoyable book, and one that I often find [...]

    19. I picked this up because I was reading too many sad, depressing teen books. This was indeed the perfect antidote to the Vampire/Suicide/Abuse/ED books I've been reading lately. But it was still cheesetastic, and I found myself cringing during the romantic dialog. Oh well. It's your basic quasi-historical romance, adventure on the high seas, etc. If your expectations are fluff, you won't be disappointed.

    20. This book was a quick read. This is a book about growing up and becoming the person your are meant to be. It shows that no matter our stations in life we are to look past that and see thee real person. Once I started I couldn't put it down. Full of romance and adventure it kept me turning the pages on after another.

    21. A really fun plot idea, it caught me right away. It didn't quite keep up the pace, and it seemed pretty tame for the most part, but it was a sweet story and for the most part believable. I would have like it to have been a lot more fleshed out to get to know the characters better, but all in all a sweet book.

    22. A girl searches for her mother against the wishes of her father. Her internal struggle between duty, hope, and love for a boy in a different class comes out well in the story. Supporting characters aren't as well-developed, and the setting over the sea and in a colonized India has a lot more promise.

    23. In 1799 a young, insatiable, headstrong, and complex English woman, Constance Blackchurch, stows away on her father’s ship to go on a quest to fine her missing mother. She is assisted in her search by Alexandre Sans-Nom, the pearl diver who steals her heart, but is out of her social standard.

    24. This is a well written historic romance for younger readers (14 year olds). Set in 1799, our heroine stows away on her father's merchant ship in search of her missing mother. The young (and good looking) pearl diver steals her heart

    25. My friend Becky loaned this book to me. I'm not generally into teen romance books, so it took me a while to get into it. I was glad I persisted, though, as the book very well-writen and captivating. I enjoyed it very much.

    26. This is a young adult historical romance set in 1799. I received it for my birthday, and it was a fun, easy read. I could guess the plot very easily, and the characters were some what stereotyped.

    27. Love the romance, suspense and sadness in this book. I literally read it in 2 hours, it was just that good:)

    28. Quando l'ho letto mi ha ricordato i romanzi della mia gioventù. Le traversate oceaniche, ragazze coraggiose, amori impossibiliJeez, sto diventando vecchia
