Happy Monday! The purpose of memorable Monday is to showcase a book that you’ve read in the past and share how/why it has stuck with you.
This week I’m featuring:
With it being the release day today for the 9th book in this series titled The Express Bride (click HERE for full review), I thought it would be a great day to go back to the beginning and feature the first book called The Mayflower Bride (click HERE for the review). The Mayflower Bride was actually one of my first reviews that I shared on my blog, so looking back at it I’m able to see how much I’ve grown in my review-writing abilities. It was also the first book I was approved to review through NetGalley, so it holds a special fondness for me from that as well. In April when I attended CFRR I was able to meet Kimberley Woodhouse in person and actually chatted with her about some of the research that she talked about in her notes for this book (and some of her others). I know that this will remain to be a very special book to me. I highly recommend not only this book, but the whole series 🙂
About the Book:
A New Series Begins for Lovers of History, Adventure, Romance, and Ancestry
A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.
Mary 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 survive to face the spring planting and unknown natives? Will William be branded a traitor and expelled?
Join the adventure as the Daughters of the Mayflower series begins with The Mayflower Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse.
