The Liberty Bride, by MaryLu Tyndall is book 6 in The Daughters of the Mayflower. Set off the Coast of Virginia during 1814, this story focuses on Emeline and Owen, two American passengers on a British ship claiming loyalty to England during the War of 1812. From a very young age, Emeline has been caring for others. She has lived with a relative in England until their passing. Now she on on her way home to America when the ship is taken over. To remain safe, she claims loyalty to England, yet nurses the injured and sick regardless of their loyalties.
The main characters struggle with their Christian faith. Emeline was raise to believe God loves those who do good things, Owen is the son of a minister who never met his father’s expectations. While traveling on land, acting as spies for England they come upon a family that are victims of the British Army. The father is a minister who dies from his injuries. While mourning, his wife clings to her faith and the Holy Spirit’s reminder that God is always with her and will never leave her. Emeline and Owen are able to learn the truth of God’s love.
I really enjoyed reading this story. I enjoyed the author’s description of the sea air and being on the ship. This is a nice addition to the Daughters of the Mayflower series. While this is a series, each of the books are stand alone stories that take place during important times in our history. The only thing connecting these stories is the Lytton family connection.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
