A War-Torn Countryside Is No Place for a Lady
Mercy Lytton is a lady like none other. Raised amongst the Mohawks, she straddles two cultures, yet each are united in one cause. . .to defeat the French. Born with a rare gift of unusually keen eyesight, she is chosen as a scout to accompany a team of men on a dangerous mission. Yet it is not her life that is threatened. It is her heart.  Condemned as a traitor, Elias Dubois faces the gallows. At the last minute, he is offered his freedom if he consents to accompany a stolen shipment of French gold to a nearby fort—but he is the one they stole it from in the first place. It turns out that the real thief is the beguiling woman, Mercy Lytton, for she steals his every waking thought.   Can love survive divided loyalties in a backcountry wilderness?
Join the adventure as the Daughters of the Mayflower series continues with The Captured Bride by Michelle Griep.

My Review

Genre: Historical, Christian Fiction.
My Rating: 4 and 1/2 Stars.
Recommendation: 15+ because of violence.
My favorite character/s: Deliverance (Livvy) Hunter is just sooooo sweet and trusting, normally I don’t like when writers throw in a younger kid to show how their characters act with kids, yet Miss Griep did great with Livvy. I loved her and how insightful she was.
My Verse for Livvy is Matthew 18:3
And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
My thoughts: There was a little too much violence for my taste, but it wasn’t overwhelming. In all this was a very enjoyable book, and I hope to (soon!) read more by Michelle Griep.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review. (And I am truly happy to provide it! 🙂 )
