The Liberty Bride is a very nice addition to the Daughters of the Mayflower series. This is a series in which each of the books stand alone. They tell the stories of men and women during major events in history. They are tied together only in the sense that the women in the stories come from the same family tree throughout the ages.
I really enjoyed The Liberty Bride. Emeline and Owen were characters who had based their views relating to God on the words and actions of their fathers. They both struggled with the idea of God’s grace throughout the story.
The settings for this novel were interesting and engaging, both on land and at sea. There were quite a few tense moments that built up the fear that either Emeline or Owen’s true loyalties would be revealed to the British. I also enjoyed watching Owen and Emeline fall in love with each other, even as they thought that they were on opposing sides of the war.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Lieutenant Owen Masters and Emeline Baratt meet on a British warship as sworn enemies. Where will Emeline place her loyalties when forced to spy against her country?
A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.
War Forces a Choice Between Love and Country
A trip home from England to Maryland in 1812 finds Emeline Baratt a captive on a British warship and forced to declare her allegiance between the British and Americans. Remaining somewhat politically neutral on a ship where her nursing skills are desperately needed is fairly easy—until she starts to have feelings for the first lieutenant who becomes her protector. However, when the captain sends her and Lieutenant Owen Masters on land to spy, she must choose between her love for him or her love for her country.
