The Mayflower Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower #1) Reviews
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 voyage.
And yet, she managed to weave a fictionalized story within the details of history that both honors and brings to life the long and treacherous voyage across an ocean. One fraught with storms, sickness, and disa ...more
A marvelous feat. Through The Mayflower Bride, Kimberley Woodhouse has woven a tender tale of love and endurance through a rich historical tapestry. The momentous voyage and landing takes on new depths of meaning through every carefully crafted page. What an inspiring tribute to the hope that filled those men and women’s sails, and to the courage that buoyed them through their storms.

I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
So…let me just start this off with saying that I think I fell in love with William Lytton. Why don’t they make men like that anymore? William is a man who knows how to treat a lady: chivalrous, prays with Mary Elizabeth (sighs), spends time with her little brother, attempts to speak with her father, and most importantly, would do anything for the girl he loves. Not only all of those glor ...more
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 balanced for the young adult audience, something I'd be comfortable loaning to the 12 year old neighbor girl, or a nice little old lady at the Quaker retirement home. I suspect my great uncle, bless his heart, wou ...more
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 amazing parts of history, reading some of the stories that have been kept about those events have been neat. One of my favorite movies is based on the book, North and South. In it Margaret goes to the Great Exhibition ...more
" 'When you don't know what to pray, Mary Elizabeth, pray the words Jesus taught us… pray scripture.' Mother's words floated over her, and a single tear slipped down her cheek."
The Mayflower Bride (2018, Barbour), first in the The Daughters of the Mayflower series by Kimberley Woodhouse, is a historical Christian romance set between 1620-1621 mostly on the open seas. The novel is a standalone story. I chose to read this book because two of my absolute favorite authors, Michelle Griep and Ma ...more
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’t even discovered and named until 1881
—Washing one’s mouth out with soap as a treatment of swearing: First, there wasn’t bar soap as we know it. Most soap was “brown soap,” with lye sourced from ash, which doesn’t fully harden ...more
The Mayflower Bride by Kimberly Woodhouse
This is the first in a series: Daughters of the Mayflower. It is set in Holland, England and Plimouth, near Cape Cod in America in 1620. Most of the book takes place aboard the Speedwell and the Mayflower, ships that are making their way to the New World.
I love learning about history and this is just like stepping back in time. A simpler time but a harder time.
The players are the passengers of The Speedwell and Mayflower. Kimberly Woodhouse has used th ...more
