Review: Tidewater Bride by Laura Frantz

Tidewater Bride was a beautiful novel! I felt fully immersed in the time period and completely enthralled in the difficulties and triumphs of these characters.

Selah and Xander had such wonderful interactions as their relationship began to grow from friendship and admiration to a deep devotion. I loved their scenes together.

This story explored the fragile relationship between the Powhatan nation and the Virginia Colony communities, the reality of slavery, the importance of family, the difference between worship for show rather than a true heart for God and his people, and the devastation that greed can bring into a person’s life.

I loved reading this fascinating book and know that I will be thinking about these characters for a long time to come.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Selah Hopewell, Virginia Colony’s most eligible woman, is busy matchmaking for a ship of brides, though she has no wish to wed.

Xander Renick is perhaps the most eligible tobacco lord in the settlement, but he is already wedded to his business and still grieves the loss of his wife, daughter of the Powhatan chief.

Can two fiercely independent people find happiness and fulfillment on their own? Or will they discover that what they’ve been missing in life has been right in front of them all along?
