The Liberty Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower #6) by MaryLu Tyndall

The Liberty BrideTitle: The Liberty Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower #6)
Author: MaryLu Tyndall
Rating: ★★★★

I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

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

War Forces a Choice Between Love and 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 or her love for her country.

Join the adventure as the Daughters of the Mayflower series continues with The Liberty Bride by MaryLu Tyndall.

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)

What I liked about this novel was that the girl had more spunk than the male this time around. She was more adventurous and daring in the non-typical ways. Risking her life to save those she loved and taking on an invaluable role, Emeline was the picture of bravery. While a little ignorant to things going on around her, she was the epitome of a hero: selfless, brave, and patient. 

If you love enemy to lover stories, then this is the one for you! I love the attitude given by our two main characters to each other. It definitely brings some humor to the story! At first thought to be of opposing sides, Emeline and Owen’s chemistry still flourished. Once known of the same allegiance, their love blossomed. An easy read that will keep your attention!

Many Christians desire a deeper, consistent, more powerful prayer life but often struggle to know where to begin. The 30-Day Prayer Challenge is the perfect place to start.

This book, written for women of all ages, provides a month’s worth of specific, daily prayer challenges that will draw you closer to your Father God through meaningful conversation.

Each day includes a devotion, scripture, questions for consideration, and prayer starters for morning, noon, and night that touch on 30 unique topics important to her heart:
Friendship
Patience
Confidence/Self-Esteem
Contentment
And more!

The 30-Day Prayer Challenge for Women will jump-start your prayer life, and is great for personal use or as a group!

I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a great read, especially for right before Advent. It seemed like every day, the text pertained to exactly what I was feeling or struggling with. I really liked how every day had three prayers, and not only that, but examples. 

The situations were realistic and relatable. The writing was engaging and easy to read. This is perfect for women who want a little bit of prayer during the day, but in an easy format. I loved this!

OCTOBER 2018
DARK FAIRYTALE

LitJoy Crate is probably my favorite NEW subscription book box. At the same time that I was looking to subscribe to LitJoy Crate originally, I subscribed to Illumicrate and that was a major disappointment. The book wasn’t signed and there was not another included like it had been in the past. However, this is not the case with LitJoy Crate. The book has always been signed since I’ve been subscribed and lately there is a dust jacket and exclusive artwork in the book. Never a disappointment!
