Title: The Pirate Bride (The Daughters of the Mayflower #2)
Author: Kathleen Y’Barbo
My rating 5+ out of 5 stars.
What a fun story to read! I sat and read it in one night and thoroughly enjoyed myself. There is mystery and danger, intrigue and drama; yet, there are some parts of the story that are just comical. Maribel is a young girl who wants to be a privateer. As she reads about these men in books, the sense of adventure just speaks to her heart. Maribel is a character who bucks what is expected of her or even the mold others want to place her in.
Maribel experiences many different and dangerous moments she didn’t sign up for, but she is determined nonetheless. She is raised in a convent and becomes a teacher, but there is still a part of her that longs to escape into a book without being bothered. What I laughed about was the place she chooses to read her books and how others react to her choice!
Towards the end of the story the author throws a twist in the plot that really made my heart race and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough! Here is one book I know I will read again and enjoy at some time in the future. Until then, I plan on telling others about the series as well as encouraging people to get the book for their own personal libraries! So, ahoy mateys, grab a copy and come aboard for an adventure you won’t regret it!
