    "Never you fear about that. God be wit' us.""How do you know God is not with the British?""Don't matter wha' side 'e takes. 'E's still wit' you and me." The Liberty Bride (2018, Barbour) by MaryLu Tyndall is the sixth book in the Daughters of the Mayflower series. It's a standalone Christian historical romance set on the sea in the Atlantic Ocean in 1814. I believe the last book I read by this author was Surrender the Sea, which is another gre...

    I have read and loved all of the Brides of the Mayflower series. I loved following along with it as it progresses with time. This series started out in 1620 and as of the sixth book we are now up to 1814 Baltimore. I live two hours from Baltimore and enjoy walking along the harbor there so this was even more enjoyable for me. MaryLu Tyndall does an amazing job with her description of the ship and the going on's on it. Strong, faith filled book th...
  • Heidi Robbins (Heidi Reads...)
    I enjoyed the early American setting on both land and sea and the theme of patriotism that runs throughout the book. There is plenty of action and I appreciated the historical details that brought authenticity and made me grateful I live now instead of then! The swift pace of the plot made it hard to put the book down and even though I didn't quite connect with the main characters' emotions, I found the story captivating with twists and turns tha...

    “History never really says goodbye. History says, ‘See you later.’” –Eduardo GaleanoRating: Clean: although there was an attempted assault: faith-based: This is Book 6 in the Daughters of the Mayflower series.“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can b...

In this sixth book of the Daughters of the Mayflower series, author MaryLu Tyndall takes us to east coast of the United States during the War of 1812.Main character Emeline was born in Baltimore and has family in England. She believes in God and following a set of rules. Although she is a rule follower, she is also willing to take a risk to help others. Emeline is a wonderful character and it was a joy to spend tim...

    I received a ARC of The Liberty Bride from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for a honest and fair review.MaryLu Tyndall...what a very delightful and well worth the read story. I am a bit disappointed that this is the 6th book in the series and I have never enlightened myself with you as an author and your other novels.The Liberty Bride is set during the War of 1812 where the heroine, Emeline Barrett becomes hostage on a British ship. C...

  • Missy
    This is a story of Emaline Baratt, an American, returning from England in the War of 1812 when her ship is taken by the Royal Navy, and First Lt. Owen Masters. Once Masters learns she knows how to treat people medically, he sends her below to treat the Americans and the British. Emaline is also artistically talented and is commissioned by the ship's captain to paint his portrait, in the same room where strategies are discussed for future battles....
  • Brittany
    The Liberty Bride is a very nice addition to the Daughters of the Mayflower series. This is a series in which each of the books stand alone. They tell the stories of men and women during major events in history. They are tied together only in the sense that the women in the stories come from the same family tree throughout the ages.I really enjoyed The Liberty Bride. Emeline and Owen were characters who had based their views relating to God on th...

Or is there another key to freedom and victory?Finding the truth that redemption starts in the heart can free us to the most precious gift of all, which empowers us to love enemies and show mercy.This boo...
  • Diana
    Once again, author MaryLu Tyndall sweeps the reader away on an exhilarating, seafaring adventure set against the backdrop of the War of 1812! I would've learned so much had Tyndall been my history teacher in school. With her unique voice I was taken captive to that very horrific time and place...experiencing the scent and wild beauty of the sea, the horrors of war, and the first blush of romance.First Lieutenant Owen Masters is quite the perfect ...
  • Susan
    I am really enjoying this series. Each book gives the reader a wonderful story at different pivotal moments in American history. Although it follows the members of the same family, each book can be read as a standalone.MaryLu Tyndall is at her best in describing life at sea in her stories. The beautiful prose appeals to the senses as the reader is drawn into the story, experiencing the sights, sounds and smells aboard a British warship. Nearly ha...
  • Susan F
    I enjoyed this book immensely. The historical adventure is filled with action, suspense and a good dose of friction between a few of the characters. A building attraction between main characters, Emiline and Owen, who question the patriotic loyalty of one another is magnetic. I enjoyed the smooth plot that centers around Americans and British during the War of 1812. Tyndall has really created an excellent story that flows with history and makes i...
  • Sarita
    This was another great story in the Mayflower series. Both Emeline and Owen had their own adventurous journey in finding God while being a spy for America on a British ship. There was a few moments which made me smile when they saw each other as traitors when in fact they were on the same side. I loved the scene where Owen forced Emeline's hand to show on which side she was.Portions was hard to read due to the brutality of the British. People bei...
  • Trisha Robertson (Joy of Reading)
    With lively, dynamic characters, and a fun story plot of spies and secrets, I was eagerly along for a fun adventure both on the sea and on land!Emeline didn’t plan on becoming a spy, however, when she finds herself a captive on a Brittish warship, it becomes clear that her best option of survival is proclaiming herself a loyalist while secretly helping the cause of liberty. The lie she’s forced to tell eats away at her, and she struggles to b...
  • Karen R
    Adventure, intrigue, and romance in a time of war! Set towards the end of the War of 1812, this story involves real events and details that bring an authentic feel to the plot and characters. The author brings her careful research to life from real battles, to the gritty details of life at sea, in a country under major attack. The tension mounts as they get closer to the epic battle of Baltimore in 1814, and the main characters wrestle with their...
  • Dana Michael
    The Liberty Bride is a book set during the end of the War of 1812. The heroine is taken captive and held on a British ship. The hero is an officer on that ship. There is an immediate attraction between the two, but they are enemies. Or, are they? This is a book you would expect from Marylu Tyndall with seafaring adventures, nefarious characters and heart warming romance. I think anyone who loves stories rich with history and adventure will also e...

    I have loved these beautiful books called “The Daughters of the Mayflower”. In The Liberty Bride, Emeline tries to do the best she can in helping the wounded aboard her father’s privateers. American and England is at war and she gets trapped behind enemy lines. What does she do? Well she becomes a spy but feels bad about the wrong things and wants to understand and trust God. Emeline also starts to have feelings for Lieutenant Owen Masters ...
  • Rachael
    Enjoyable read...great characters and faith theme. I didn’t really connect with the main characters as much as I would have like to do, but i did enjoy the read.To me, the best part of this book is the faith theme that’s woven in so well.
  • Amy
    MaryLu Tyndall’s addition to The Daughters of the Mayflower series, The Liberty Bride is a fabulous read! I believe it is my favorite of all of the series. I loved the adventure, action and historical details that made me feel like part of Owen Masters and Emeline Baratt’s story. I highly highly recommend The Liberty Bride. Especially, for readers who enjoy clean historical fiction that is full of faith and inspiration. I would give it 100 st...
  • Lynda Edwards
    I have read several of MaryLu Tyndall’s novels before and largely enjoyed them. When I found her latest was included in The Daughters of the Mayflower series, I excitedly began reading as soon as I could. The action begins from the earliest pages with characters that quickly embedded in my heart even as they tried to make sense of the world at war around them, and the battles that wage within their own hearts. I really enjoyed both Owen and Eme...
  • Amber Stokes
    The Liberty Bride harks back to some of MaryLu Tyndall's earlier historical romances, particularly her Surrender to Destiny series, which is set in the same era. (One of the books is even referenced in the author's note.) And as with those novels, I enjoyed this new adventure with its tension and drama and rekindled hope.Most of the first half of the story takes place at sea (albeit not far from land). While life aboard a British naval ship is qu...

    4.5 stars"I try so hard to be good, but sometimes it seems the world, or perhaps God, is against me." Just hours after musing about what it would feel like to escape her impending life of stuffy expectations by plunging into the sea, Emeline Barratt is trapped on board a Royal British Navy vessel as a prisoner of war. Prompted by her travel companion to use her feminine wiles to full advantage, she feigns allegiance to Britain; using her recent s...
  • Susan Snodgrass
    "Did people really hear from God?"The Liberty Bride is the last in The Daughters of the Mayflower series and MaryLu Tyndall takes it out with a bang. Set mainly on board a ship, which is her specialty, the book is full of suspense, heroism and war. Emeline Baratt is on board a ship from England to America to rejoin her father when the ship is captured by a Royal Navy frigate. Emeline is taken on board with the others on board their ship and held ...
  • Scarlett
    Thanks to NetGalley and Barbour Publishing for an ARC of this book! This series is great for a not too serious, easy to read, clean, historical love story. I enjoyed an earlier book in the series, The Pirate Bride, and enjoyed this one just as much. Each book takes place during a different time period with different main characters so they can be standalones. This book takes place during the War of 1812 and I found the historical aspect to be rea...
  • Vera Godley
    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...
  • Trixi
    How many remember the war of 1812? I know I wished I had paid more attention during history class in school! The British invasion of both Washington D.C. and the attempt on Baltimore to takeover the cities was a brutal and devastating time in American history. Marylu Tyndall brings it all to life in the pages of The Liberty Bride . Starting off with the capture of a privateer ship containing the captains daughter Emeline Baratt and crew, mostly ...
  • Monique
    The Liberty Bide by MaryLu Tyndall is the sixth book of the Daughter of the Mayflower series, though it can be read independantly without missing anything. I have fallen in love with this series, it’s quite unique because many different authors participate., I actually broke my reading stop when I saw I got the arc, which is really special because reading stops only happen when I’m too ill to read. It took me a week where it would normally ta...
  • Sarah
    Once again this series has delivered a solid, intriguing story full of suspense, romance, and faith. While some series might fall into a rut and begin to turn out indistinguishable heroines and monotonous plot lines, The Daughters of the Mayflower always rises to the occasion with a fresh, exciting experience. Part of this may be attributable to the fact that a variety of authors have contributed to the project. In “The Liberty Bride”, MaryLu...
