Diane and Robin welcome your comments and questions:

Welcome to

What would you do if you were abducted by aliens, managed to escape and find your way back home only to discover that no one knows who you are?

“A cozy family adventure…”
— Kirkus Reviews
“Doreen D. Berger’s young adult novel, The Captain’s Daughters, is a clever and engaging twist on the theme of kidnapping. The plot originates with a normal, earth-bound experience – horseback riding – and morphs into an interstellar adventure full of danger, espionage, and alternate realities. There are so many imaginative twists and turns that young readers will be enthralled right to the very end. The characters are well developed with lots of dialogue to help establish their personae. The descriptive narrative is well executed and the reader feels instantly involved in the story as the action plays out. A marvelous outer space drama – I couldn’t put it down!”
— Readers’ Favorite 5-Star Review

For most adolescents, growing up is hard enough when one has both feet planted firmly on the ground. But for mischievous, twelve-year-old sisters Diane and Robin, life is complicated further by the fact that their father, Captain William Marsh, is the commander of the Starship Polaris. Living among the stars provides a never-ending realm of creative possibility for the free-spirited girls’ pranks and adventures.

When aliens bent on profit and revenge kidnap Diane and Robin, only their indomitable spirit, ingenuity, and a common love of trouble allow the pair to escape the alien vessel. Finding their way home seems assured until the sisters realize they have been taken into a parallel universe, almost identical to their own, but with surprising differences. Suddenly faced with a family that does not recognize them, and further from home then they could ever have imagined, the sisters must evade an enemy who will stop at nothing to get them back into his evil clutches. Blocked by interstellar battles, malevolent creatures, and overwhelming obstacles, the sisters fear they may never find a way to return to their own universe and to the father they love.
