Summary

Can a religious separatist and an opportunistic spy make it in the New World?

Mary Elizabeth Chapman boards the Speedwell in 1620 as a Separatist seeking a better life in the New World. William Lytton embarks on the Mayflower as a carpenter looking for opportunities to succeed - and he may have found one when a man from the Virginia Company offers William a hefty sum to keep a stealth eye on company interests in the new colony.

The season is far too late for good sailing and storms rage, but reaching land is no better as food is scarce and the people are weak. Will Mary Elizabeth survive to face the spring planting and unknown natives? Will William be branded a traitor and expelled?

Great Story

Great story and a wonderful history lesson. The characters were well developed. There was God, struggle, and love. The narration was also very good.

Bring on the Mayflower!!!

This is a good book for late night listening because it gets my attention and keeps it! I have tried to limit myself to only a few chapters at a time....I failed miserably...I was enjoying it too much to close it down. I don't sleep well at night so this was perfect for me. The house is quiet and my body is ready for rest but my mind will not shut off.. It is at times such as these that I reach for a good book. I have had several eye surgeries, thus, how wonderful it was to pick up "my book" and relax! The Mayflower Bride keeps me wanting more. I'm ready for the next book in the series.

A Wonderful Novel

I have read the history of the Mayflower and the Plymouth colony.
The writer was faithful to the historical facts and in the telling created realistic characters

What I like the most was that as a 21st century person listening to the story I was spiritually encouraged by the inclusion of scripture throughout the retelling of the life of the 17th century people of Plymouth colony.
