Karen RWAGender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Adventure and romance deep in the heart of TexasFebruary 29, 2020Karen RWAGender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Another enjoyable story in the Daughters of the Mayflower series! Western flair adds something special to this coming of age tale, that starts with a life changing cattle drive in 1880 along the infamous Chisholm Trail. The drama fast forwards almost a decade later as the main characters still wrestle with the aftermath.
Adventure, romance and a cast of strong characters held my attention, making this a fast paced read for me. A battle of wills, a fight for truth and honor seemed to dominate Wyatt and Eliza's story. She seemed to not be very astute when it came to people, lacking in the area of discernment. He was truly a noble character, and it was painful to imagine what he went through. I enjoyed the side characters, Justine, and the Italian family in Galveston; they livened up the story with a bit of humor. The author's notes at the end were interesting. It was truly a romantic era in our country's history. The song references to "Deep in the Heart of Texas" had me singing it for days!
"The stars at night are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas."
Fans of historical romances with some action and inspiration would probably enjoy this. It reads fine as a stand alone.

CarolynAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5GREAT READ!February 6, 2020CarolynAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Chisholm Trail Bride is an easy-to-read tale of love and deception set in Texas and Louisiana in the late 1800s. The characters are engaging and believable. The plot revolves around a life-changing incident along the Chisholm Trail which is still having repercussions nine years later. A statement from Mrs. Gentry to Eliza sums it up: "...you many never know the things that happened to you to make your life what it is...and you many never know how difficult those choices were for your father." Elements of faith are scattered throughout the narrative, and humorous moments enhance the story and lighten the mood. This is an interesting, enjoyable read, and I highly recommend it.
