Book Review of The Mayflower Bride by Kimberly Woodhouse

Mary Elizabeth sails on a voyage that seems doomed from the start

Mary Elizabeth Chapman boards the Speedwell in 1620 alongside her father and brother as Separatists seeking a better life in the New World.

William Lytton embarks on the Mayflower as a carpenter looking for opportunities to succeed—and he may have found one when a man from the Virginia Company offers William a hefty sum to keep a stealth eye on company interests in the new colony.

The season is far too late for good sailing and storms rage, but reaching land may be no better as food is scarce and the people are weak.

Will Mary Elizabeth survive to face the spring planting and unknown natives? Will William be branded a traitor and expelled?

Thoughts

I’ve enjoyed several of the books in this series, The Captured Bride, The Patriot Bride, The Golden Bride, and The Express Bride, but I have not read the start of the series until now when I found out my library had a copy, I read it a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving. The writing style was somewhat boring, I liked the story, and the plot, the characters though were somewhat average which was somewhat disappointing since the story is far from average. I did enjoy the book and liked the historical references.
Rating: 4 stars.
Recommendation: 13 up.
