Title: The Alamo Bride (Daughters of Mayflower #7)
Author: Kathleen Y’Barbo
Publisher: Barbour Books
My rating: 4 out of 5 stars
The series, for those who don’t know, is written by various authors, starting with Kimberley Woodlouse’s novel titled The Mayflower Bide. Following that there are the five novels: The Pirate Bride, The Captured Bride, The Patriot Bride, The Cumberland Bride, The Liberty Bride, and coming in April 2019 is The Golden Bride. Each novel is unique and filled with adventure, mystery, and romance along with faith of the characters.
Every one of the previously listed stories I have read and enjoyed for different reasons. The Alamo Bride took me a few chapters to become engaged but was still worth reading. Here, the lead female character is known mainly by her shortened named Ellis. Her personality is one of stubbornness, strength, knowledge of herbs and healing along with courage.
The story is not set when the battle of the Alamo is taking place. Readers will be lured into the story by a man from New Orleans who is on a presidential mission. However, harm comes to him and not only is his life in danger but so is concluding the mission. Ellis and her family don’t know if they can trust this man, as he is having memory issues and they aren’t sure which side he stands with, Santa Anna or those loyal to Texas.
The book was for hard to get into but once I did, it was good. I thought the story would take place at the Alamo and during the fighting. There are individual skirmishes, but the tale focuses on Ellis and the man who has a mission. It is worth reading and enjoying, and I look forward to the last book in the series to see how this is all going to conclude!
