The Captured Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower #3) Reviews
I love diving into books. I especially really love diving into books because of the characters. They are what make a great book for me. If I can connect with them and go on their journey with them, feeling the emotions they must experience, watching the struggles, witnessing the joys and growth. That is why I come away from books absolutely loving the experience. Yes, I love the storyline as well. If I'm honest, the storyline is what initially draws me to a book. But, in the end it's the cha ...more
In true Last of the Mohicans style, follow the adventure of half-breed scout Mercy Lytton as she attempts to help get a load of gold across war-torn countryside. Dangers abound, without and within, and especially from the handsome traitor, Elias Dubois.
I think one of the things that really attracted me to this story was the setting. I haven't read many (or any?) book set during this time of the French/Indian War. It was fascinating to me! This author is one of my favorites so I knew going into this book that I would be fully immersed in a story that was textured and exciting.
This story starts off right in the thick of the conflict. It has a steady pace and felt well balanced between moments of action and moments of stillness where we come to ...more
The Daughters of the Mayflower Series is such a wonderful premise. Historical romance novels written in chronological order by different authors. And the covers are lovely.
In The Captured Bride, readers are taken to the French and Indian War set in 1760. Mercy Lytton has lived an unusual life. Her white mother was taken captive and married a Mohawk Indian. Mercy was raised among the Mohawk tribe and taught about Jesus by her mother. She is definitely not an easily broken female and is more comfo ...more
Loyalties seem to lie all over the map, especially for the hero of The Captured Bride, Elias Dubois. And with all the intrigue and imminent dangers, Michelle Griep has created another engaging historical novel!
I enjoyed getting to know the main characters of this story and following their mission of transporting gold to another fort. Secrets abound (along with a double cross or two), and there are enough questions and twists to set a good pace. Elias and Mercy make an effective team (when not st ...more
I liked the setting as I’ve not read many books set during the French and Indian war and the covers of this series are so gorgeous. Overall this book was interesting and light, if not a little cheesy with the romance and heavy with the telling vs. showing. A good book when you’re looking for a little adventure in your reading but you don’t want to be consumed by your fiction.
Mercy Lytton is the strangest thing Elias DuBois has ever seen. A slip of a woman, both Mohawk and white, she is a renowned scout for the English. And her pride and stubbornness, ooh, la, la!! Almost as great as her talent.
Elias DuBois is perhaps the sorriest thing Mercy Lytton has ever seen. Beaten until he is half-dead, condemned as a traitor to the English, DuBois can only escape the hangman’s noose by joining an elaborate scheme. One that forces him and Mercy to work closely together, trust ...more
The Captured Bride by Michelle Griep is book # 3 in the Daughter of the Mayflower series.
This series has become one of my favorites.
The story is totally captivating. It is reminiscent of The Last of the Mohicans by Cooper only infinitely more readable. In this case the scout is Mercy Lytton.
Mercy Lytton is one tough lady. She is the offspring of an Indian chief and a captured, Christian, white woman. Mercy is very independent and she has exceptional eyesight, a good trait in a scout. She is cho ...more
