    This is another interesting story in the Mayflower Brides series. Clay is a member of the New Orleans Grays, or is he just posing as one? After being shot he is cared for by Texians, including Ellis, who isn't quite sure she trusts him. Unrest stirs the atmosphere as the Mexican army f...

    As an adopted Texan (I lived there for 32 years) and having taken a college class in Texas history, I appreciated the author's wonderful historical research on Texas' battle for independence. She brought the life and times of the Texians into a vivid picture that set the reader right t...

    The Alamo Bride is the seventh installment of the Daughters of the Mayflower series. I have had the privilege of reading the previous books, too, and I have developed a fondness for this series. Don?t worry, each book can be read seperately very well! Usually each book has all new ch...

    To be honest, The Alamo is the first historical event in this amazing series, The Daughters of the Mayflower, of which I had preconceived ideas and, as such, I cracked The Alamo Bride by Kathleen Y?Barbo open with hesitation. If I could read with my eyes closed that would have been h...

    The Alamo Bride by Kathleen Y'Barbo is book 7 in the Daughters of the Mayflower series. I've really enjoyed going on this journey through history with this series. All the books can be read as a stand alone but starting with The Mayflower Bride and working my way through history has be...

    The Alamo Bride is the seventh installment from the Daughters of the Mayflower series. I enjoyed this historical. It takes the reader back to the Texas Revolution in 1836. I loved Ellis from the start and admired her bravery and determination throughout. I liked The Alamo Bride and...

    Since Kathleen Y?Barbo wrote ?The Pirate Bride?, book 2 in The Daughters of the Mayflower series, it is also fitting that she penned ?The Alamo Bride?, as there are direct connections between some of the characters. Although I mention this in most of my reviews for this serie...

    While The Alamo Bride didn't steal my heart like the author's prior book in the series The Pirate Bride, it was a well written story. I especially enjoyed the way the author painted a picture of the geography. I could easily visualize in my mind the setting. Ellis is a lovely name a...

    The breathtaking sixth in the Daughters of the Mayflower multi-author series, The Alamo Bride is exciting and stirring. The historical research into Texas and the era is shared in a way that is fascinating, almost as if one is there. This is a beautifully-written Christian action and r...

    I loved the setting of this book in Texas, right before the Battle of the Alamo. The author did a great job of illustrating what daily life was like back then. The characters were all interesting. I particularly liked that the main female character, Ellis, was so strong and independent...

    The newest addition to the Daughters of the Mayflower series has plenty of action, interesting history and courageous characters. The author does a thorough job of reminding readers of the family's history, connecting back to characters from her previous book in the series, The Pirate ...

    Friend or foe? My rating is 3.5 stars I was very excited to read this story as I have really enjoyed the others in the series. The history in them along with the adventures and sweet romance. . . When Ellis discovered Clay, she feared he was dead. Upon discovering he still liv...

    This is a very historically rich story that builds slowly with the departure of Claiborne ?Clay? Gentry from New Orleans as a ?Grey soldier? to Velasco in what would later become Texas territory. A cryptic note from his grandfather after his death hinted at vast wealth to be us...

    This cover is gorgeous, isn't it? Anyway, if you love history with lots of intrigue and detail, this is the book for you. A bit too much "telling" for my taste but otherwise the writing was good. I did learn a lot about the history of Texas that I had no previous knowledge of, which...

    3.5* I've enjoyed this Daughters of the Mayflower series a lot. I have two that I need to catch up on and am looking forward to them. Kathleen Y'Barbo wrote a previous book in this series, The Pirate Bride. I thoroughly enjoyed it and her writing style. That was my first time rea...

    I have read every book so far published in the Daughters of The Mayflower series, this is number 7. While they are a series they can also be read as standalones. All of the books feature a woman main character who is a strong,encouraging role model/heroine. I enjoyed this story it take...

    Kathleen Y'Barbo's love for her home state shines through this wonderful addition to the Daughters of the Mayflower series. The books in this series can be read as a stand alone and penned by several authors. Most of the story of the Alamo Bride is set away from the historic site, in t...

    Having read The Pirate Bride where I adored Maribel, it was fun to read about her great-granddaughter, Ellis, who had a lot of the fun qualities I enjoyed in Maribel. Some of my favourite parts were interactions between her and her grandfather where her strong will came across in a hum...

    This is the 7th book in the multi-author series. I liked this one (a strong 3 stars). It's the greatest battle for Texas ever, the Alamo. As a Texan who has also sent several years in Louisiana, I'm a sucker for Southern history! First, you meet Clay, a soldier looking to help the Pre...

    It?s not often I feel ambivalent about a novel, but that seems to be the best word to describe how I felt when I finished this one. Which is a shame, because I didn?t start out that way. The story begins with Clay setting out on a mission to find treasure buried by his grandfath...

    The Daughters of the Mayflower has been a great series and The Alamo Bride is a great addition to the series. What I love about each of the books is that they are so well written and they feature a strong woman who perseveres and finds love in the process. In The Alamo Bride, Ellis...

    I love this series and love each additional book in the series (I secretly hope they keep it going, I would love to see what an author does with the Civil War, WW I, and WW II, which are my favorite times). This was a solid 4.5 star read. But this one kept me wanting to read, even thou...

    Thanks to NetGalley and Barbour Publishing for an ARC of this book! Release date - February 1, 2019 I definitely enjoyed this book, although it has been my least favorite so far in the series. While The Pirate Bride and The Liberty Bride, the other two I have read in this series, we...

    The Alamo Bride by Kathleen Y'Barbo is a historical romance that takes place during the time of the Alamo and is wonderfully Christian-based. It has a powerful message that deals with trusting and believing in God and trusting God when one is unsure of what the future holds. I found...
