    A very moving story

    I enjoy reading real history within a fictionalized story and this was a good one. The author's notes tell of the great research she did and even used the names of many actual passengers on board for the trip to the New World in her novel. Many had great hope for a new life. Many were fearful and doubtful. Many died aboard ship and many died that first winter. The passengers had little personal space. It was cramped and disease and seasickness was rampant. The smells were stifling and storms kept passengers below deck a lot of the time away from fresh air. The Separatists, trying to separate themselves from the Church of England and King James, kept their faith through it all. Mary Elizabeth Chapman was a fictionalized character and many happenings were seen through her eyes as well as William Lytton, a Stranger, so called because he wasn't a believer. Go with them as they board the Mayflower for a two month journey across the ocean where food is scarce, storms rage and the people are weak. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

    Interesting historical romance

    Having been to Plimouth Plantation and seen the replica of the Mayflower II, I was quite interested in reading The Mayflower Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse. Woodhouse has done a great job with the history and setting of this story. The reader feels like they are right there in the middle of the scenes. The mix of fictional characters with historical figures makes the story interesting and authentic. The sweet romance between Mary Elizabeth and William is engaging and delightful to watch unfold despite secrets and differences. The characters are vivid and lovable and their growth and maturity throughout the story is realistic. The Mayflower Bride is replete with information about the history of our nation and the struggles the passengers of the Mayflower endured. The author makes the story intriguing with some suspense as to the outcome of the passengers and to William in particular. And with a strong thread of faith in God throughout, the book is also inspirational as the reader can see how God's hand is at work in the lives of the individuals. I'm looking forward to reading more in this Daughters of the Mayflower series. I received a complimentary copy of the book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions are my own.

    Swoon Worthy

    I received a copy of this book via Bookish First. I am voluntarily reviewing it. This is not my normal type of read but as you know, I like reading anything. And this book doesn’t disappoint. It was so nice to be swept back in time and experience new places. This is definitely swoon worthy. To me, this would be such a magical experience. I’ve always wanted to be on a ship out at sea. But I could only imagine how rough things could get also. There were so many hardships and sickness that was faced. They didn’t have the medical supplies and knowledge we now have or protection from the elements. This book makes me stop and think about all the stuff I take for granted. I look forward to reading the next book in this series. It is about pirates. I love pirates.

    Life, love, hardship and religion in the New World

    I am voluntarily submitting my honest review after receiving a copy of this ebook via NetGalley. In this first installment of the Daughters of the Mayflower series, Kimberley Woodhouse introduces us to Mary Elizabeth Chapman, a young woman emigrating to the American colonies with her family in search of a better life. On board, she falls in love with carpenter William Lytton, and together they face the many perils in their late-season arrival in the New World. This book did not hold my interest well. The pace was too slow, and the high volume of religious content made the book too preachy for my taste. At times, this book reads more like a sermon than a novel. In addition, the writing style suggests to me that young adult readers might be a more appropriate audience for this book. While I didn't particularly enjoy this book, I will read the next book in the series because having different authors write each installment is an intriguing idea.
