The Liberty Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower series #6) by Mary Lu Tyndall [Review & 2-winner Giveaway]

ISBN: 9781683226178

Kindle Version
My thoughts: A bit of light historical fiction set on the high seas. Piracy ship captured. British naval superiority. Spies on both sides of the conflict.

The female protagonist, Emeline, is a bit of frivolous fluff and somewhat wishy washy in characteristics. I truly like her maid or companion, Hannah. She seemed to help keep Emeline grounded. Emeline was foolhardy and risk taking. She put herself in questionable situations which really went against the mores of the times.

The story is good. The history interesting. Parts of the story were really attention grabbing. I really like that Emeline had a strong, compassionate, and caring personality. It overrode her weaker character traits.

The "Daughters of the Mayflower series" of books from Barbour Publishing are all interesting and feature momentous events in American history. In The Liberty Bride the historic event is the ending of the War of 1812 - often called America's Second War for Independence.

A good, clean read with lots of history, a liberal sprinkling of romance, and enough action to satisfy most readers. Recommended!
About the Book:  Lieutenant Owen Masters and Emeline Baratt meet on a British warship as sworn enemies. Where will Emeline place her loyalties when forced to spy against her country?

A trip home from England to Maryland in 1812 finds Emeline Baratt a captive on a British warship and forced to declare her allegiance between the British and Americans. Remaining somewhat politically neutral on a ship where her nursing skills are desperately needed is fairly easy—until she starts to have feelings for the first lieutenant who becomes her protector. However, when the captain sends her and Lieutenant Owen Masters on land to spy, she must choose between her love for him and her love for her country.
