The Mayflower Bride By Kimberley Woodhouse

Can a religious separatist and an opportunistic spy make it in the New World?
A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.

Mary Elizabeth Chapman boards the Speedwell in 1620 as a Separatist 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 is 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?

My Thoughts...

I was a little disappointed with this book after being so excited about it.
In my opinion this was not researched very well which made it hard to get into. I wish the time period had been better researched I should say.
Aside from that it would have been a good story had it been researched a little better. The Characters were good and the romance sweet. 
I gave this book 3 stars but I cant wait to read the next book in this series  The Daughters of the Mayflower. Each book in this series has a different author.
The Mary Reader received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are our own.


  1. Sounds like this series has the potential to be good books but after reading Mary's review, I think I will pass on this one.

  2. I am sorry that you did not like this one. Not every book is for everyone. I love your truth in your reviews.

  3. I have been seeing a lot about this series, was wondering about it. really glad you shared your opinion about it, money is tight I only want to buy really good books.

  4. I think that I will check my library for this one, if they have it maybe I can enjoy it that way.

  5. I hate when I'm excited about a new book and it turns out to be a dud.

  6. I just say on to the next book. Sorry about this one Mary.

  7. It's refreshing and nice to know that you give honest reviews. Not every book is a book for you. we all like different books.

  8. I will pass on this one. Thanks.

  9. Thank you for your honest review, Mary.

  10. Good review! I love your honesty in it. My review will be posted in a couple of weeks.

  11. I love this time period, I would be interested in reading this one and more Christian fiction from it.

  12. I have opportunity to read and review this one through Barbor publishing, I'm just waiting for it to arrive. Thanks for the honest review, Mary. I'm going to make my own judgement on it once I finish :-) I agree with other comments that not every book is for every person and we each have our own tastes.

    I'm looking forward to this series put out by different authors!

  13. I think I will pass on this book. Thank you for the review!
