THE PATRIOT BRIDE by Kimberly Woodhouse, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas

I’ve been enjoying The Daughters of the Mayflower series, especially the historical aspect of the different time periods and areas. The Patriot Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse is a strong and engaging addition to the series. 

More in the Daughters of the Mayflower series:
The Mayflower Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse – set 1620 Atlantic Ocean (February 2018)
The Pirate Bride by Kathleen Y’Barbo – set 1725 New Orleans (April 2018)
The Captured Bride by Michelle Griep – set 1760 during the French and Indian War (June 2018)
The Patriot Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse – set 1774 Philadelphia (August 2018)​
The Cumberland Bride by Shannon McNear – set 1794 on the Wilderness Road (October 2018)
The Liberty Bride by MaryLu Tyndall – set 1814 Baltimore (December 2018) 

The settings in Virginia and Boston during the Revolutionary War captured my interest. The characters are well-developed, and I especially loved Faith’s strength and independence. She just stepped up and did what needed to be done to take care of herself and those she loved. Brimming with historical detail, it’s apparent that Woodhouse has done much research about the era and what life was like in those days. I’m looking forward to the other books in the series.

A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.

  1. I think it's safe to say that historical fiction authors are compulsive researchers. Researching is exciting and active and then... you face the page and have to squeeze it all down into tight little pieces and leave out 90% of what you've found. So much fun to dig in and so I LOVE such details in the historical fiction I read. Thanks Winnie! I'm so glad this series is doing so well!

  2. I love this series as well! It feeds my need for all things historical!
