The Alamo Bride 
(Book #7 in Daughters of the Mayflower Series)

My thoughts:  As the title indicates, the setting is around the area of the war with Mexico over the annexation of Texas to America. The Alamo was possibly the most famous encounter or battle; and while the story does not depict that battle, the Alamo plays prominently in the setting.

Clay is a man with a purpose who encounters two Mexicans who seriously wound him. This results in his loss of memory and the mission or purpose that he was enroute to fulfill.

The care and tending of his injuries was managed by the young lady, Ellis, and her mother. They use herbal remedies to treat him. This was a long drawn out healing affair and one which kept them on edge not knowing if he was friend or foe.

This is not heavy reading. It is interesting and entertaining. The bloodline of as a descendant of Mayflower families links Ellis with one of the early heroines who was featured in The Pirate Bride.

I enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the next in the Daughters of the Mayflower series.

About the Book: Will Ellis Lose All at the Alamo? 

The Daughters of the Mayflower continues with The Alamo Bride by Kathleen Y’Barbo in 1836 as Texians are facing war with Mexico. With the men of her family away, Ellis must stand courageous and decide what she is willing to sacrifice for the future of the republic.

Ellis Dumont finds a man in New Orleans Grey unconscious on Dumont property in 1836. As his fevers rage, the man mutters strange things about treasures and war. Either Claiborne Gentry has lost his mind or he’s a spy for the American president—or worse, for the Mexican enemy that threatens their very lives. With the men of her family away, Ellis must stand courageous and decide who she can trust. Will she put her selfish wants ahead of the future of the republic or travel with Clay to Mission San Jose to help end the war?
