    I have to admit, I first wanted to read this book because of the amazing cover. I was intrigued by the historical setting and what story the author would tell. While the book has plenty of details of the Speedwell and Mayflower voyages, they were basic and I didn't find them very compe...

    My husband's 10th great grandfather was William Bradford, so I was definitely looking forward to reading this book; and it did not disappoint. This is the heartrending and horrifying fictional story of the Separatists voyage across the Atlantic to the eastern coast of the United States...

    An expertly researched look into a time period rarely explored in CBA fiction and the worthy first bookend to Barbour's new (and ambitious) span through American history. No one can doubt the author's research nor the attention to detail. I, did, however think there were some limita...

    Reading outside my usual genres again, thanks to Goodreads Giveaways. "The Mayflower Bride" is a very well written and researched story -- it's got enough gritty bits of historical fact mixed in with the misty-eyed, very G-rated romance and not too much religion -- all in all very well...

    I am very excited for this series. I love the idea of a multi-generational saga covering the important historical events in the United States. And I loved that it started with the Mayflower because there are not enough books about the Pilgrims. Having said that, this is the first nov...

    The Mayflower Bride is a light read with moments and lines of greater depth. Unfortunately, the majority of my thoughts are more critical in nature, but that isn't to say this story isn't enjoyable or meaningful! I appreciated the generous nature of the main characters. Mary Elizabe...

    Putting faces to the story that we have known about forever, or at least we thought we did, this sure was not an easy ride, and from the beginning with three tries to leave England, we commence on the long journey, When I first considered reading this book, I remembered that Priscilla...

    The Mayflower Bride showed through a simple story the dangerous and life altering decisions that brought the Pilgrims to the New World and brought that story to life. I was very impressed with how the author included the important true events that happened on the Speedwell, the Mayflow...

    Personally, I've not read many (or any) fiction books set on The Mayflower. Ships, yes. This particular ship, nope. The author was intentional about leaving those people who truly sailed to The New World on this ship in her story. She even included events that occurred during their voy...

    The lovely cover is what drew me first to this novel. Then when I saw it was a series starting with the crossing of the Mayflower, be still my historical loving heart! The author does a fabulous job of setting up the story in the introductory comments to the reader. Likewise, the af...

    Preliminary thoughts: I liked Mary and William as characters and enjoyed the descriptions of what they faced on the Speedwell and the Mayflower. Jarring historical errors: ?Pneumonia: Not only were the symptoms and treatment and the statistics of fatality off, pneumonia wasn?...

    Faith, hunger, hardship, sickness, loss, and grief are strong threads through this story, though they failed to engage me as a reader. The mixing of the fictional leads, however, with the historical figures was well done. I found I quite liked the portrayals of Miles Standish, John Ald...

    This book is the first in a new series from Barbour, The Daughters of the Mayflower. We get to journey across the ocean with a small band of Saints and Strangers, facing storms and sickness in an attempt to build a life where they can worship as they feel led. After reading this openin...

    "We are persecuted, but not forsaken; cast downe, but we perish not." After reading this book about the 'Separatists'--the group we commonly call the Pilgrims--I find myself very thankful, like Mary Elizabeth, for all the seemingly small things that I take for granted. Clean water, ...

    I love history. This book was filled with actual hisrtorical events and it is fascinating. This author did her research. I can't even imagine being on the Mayflower and experiencing all the hardships that they endured. These pilgrims were Faith filled people and knew God had called the...

    I've often wondered what it would be like to live during some of the more famous events from history. Not that I necessarily want to live during some of those events but just wondering about the people who did live during those events. I have several ancestors who have been in some ama...

    The Mayflower Bride is an outstanding beginning to the Daughters of the Mayflower series. I was intrigued by the premise that this series will follow members of a family through the history of America. I was immediately drawn by the list of authors who would be writing the different b...

    I received this book from NetGalley and Barbour Publishing, and thank you Kimberly Woodhouse for writing it. My goodness the perils the first colonists endured to get religious freedom. Which in turn caused me to not want to put this book down. The story is about Mary Elizabeth Cha...

    Mary Elizabeth is wary of the future. Standing on the deck of the ship Speedway in 1620, she reminisces about her life in Holland and is worried about her trip to the New World. Holland wasn't home but it was where her mother had taken her final breath, and having to leave her behind i...

    4.5 stars Original Review: That was a great book! Made me remember how much I love about the Mayflower story. It was extremely well-researched, which I appreciated because I apparently know everything about the Mayflower. (That awkward moment when you suddenly realize you know ev...
