    This is a must read for lovers of historical fiction. Author Kimberley Woodhouse skillfully weaves well researched historical facts into her heart-warming tale in such a way that the past comes to life, as do her characters as they change and grow.

    Reading what these pilgrims had to endure, along with many twists and turns, will keep you turning the pages. It certainly took great faith to do the things necessary to survive. The price they paid was high indeed.

    For those looking for some romance, you won't be disappointed with the tenderness displayed in this story. Well worth reading!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book but was not required to leave a review.

    The Mayflower Bride, written by Kimberley Woodhouse, is book 1 of the Daughters of the Mayflower.

    I was excited to read it because Woodhouse was going to incorporate true historical happenings with fiction. And who doesn't like the history behind the Mayflower.

    My favorite character, William Lytton. He's a boy that came from literally nothing and yet wanted to go to the new world to start a new life.

    My biggest complaint sounds kind of petty, but I think there was a great mix of historical facts mixed in which I wanted, but they almost felt like a lot of information dumps or a ton of narrative when I prefer a lot of dialogue. May be a personal preference, but it's what held me back from giving it a higher rating.

    I was given a copy of the book by the publisher. All thoughts and comments are my own.

    The story is filled with history and characters that take the reader back to a time of long ago. From crossing the water in a leaky boat, to deathly illness, to keeping a family together despite circumstances and possibly finding love along the way, this story is exciting and heartwarming. I look forward to reading more from this author.

    Great book about the very beginning of America! The Mayflower adventure comes alive with Kimberley Woodhouse's telling of the voyage. Historical fiction is a great way to learn history and to make that history real. Kimberley lets us see inside the minds of several characters as they journey to the New World. Tragedy, love, friendships and more abound on the pages of this book!

    The Mayflower Bride

    by Kimberley Woodhouse

    Kimberley Woodhouse in a new author to me and one I will be looking for again. I enjoy historical fiction that is well researched, in that, The Mayflower Bride exceeded my expectations.The book began with an extensive list of characters designated as factual or fictional and a glossary of terms that I did refer to more than once during my reading.

    The story begins as Mary Elizabeth Chapman and her best friend Dorothy Raynsford are eavesdropping on a meeting of Separatist elders as they planned their voyage to the New World. Dorothy was excited for the adventure while Mary Elizabeth was terrified by the unknown and all the risks it involved.

    The journey was more harrowing than anyone had imagined. The author did a great job of portraying the sickness aboard the Mayflower, the endless days and nights of struggle and heartbreak of so many lives lost in the hope of finding freedom. During this journey as Mary Elizabeth tends to the needs of many sick and dying friends, including her own father and her best friend, she finds strength and courage she had not known she possessed.

    William Lytton, an orphaned Stranger, gained passage on the Mayflower looking for a chance to prove his worth as a carpenter. Before he sets sail the Virginia Company hirers William to keep an accurate accounting of the journey to protect their interests. William was pleased they had placed their trust in him and is faithful in his record keeping.

    During the arduous journey, William begins to seek the faith and peace the Separatists display and wonders if he would be found worthy of the brown eyed beauty who nurses the sick.

    My emotions went from high to low and back again as read this book. I thought the Mayflower would never reach land and then when it did, I wondered if anyone would live to start the colony, in other words, I felt very much a part of this journey.

    I will not give away the delightful ending.

    Very well done, Kimberley Woodhouse!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. This is my own honest opinion.
