The Patriot Bride: Daughters of the Mayflower – book 4
A story of adventure, intrigue, history, mystery, and, of course, love. This is the forth installment in the Mayflower Brides series and I think the best one yet.
We’re introduced to the main character, young Faith Lytton Jackson, the ward of a young George Washington, whose parents died before his became president. At an age when many a young girl is impressionable, Faith is no different, as she spends most of her time writing letters to George. And George is the most important man in her life. George manages to find a suitable family to care for her, and when he’s in town he visits her. On one of his visits, he is accompanied by Joseph Jackson, an officer in his army who hopes to marry Faith. The young couple are married, and, as all couples, they plan to have a long happy life–until it’s shattered by Joseph’s death in battle. Faith lives a lonely but comfortable life thanks to her late husband’s family. But Faith soon finds an important cause through the social circles she is in. She also meets one Matthew Weber, who is a close friend of not only Ben Franklin but George also. Soon, the two of them find themselves paired on various missions, and, yes, they fall in love. Well I’m not going to spoil the story, but I will say, if you love romance, read this book. If you love history, read this book.
I love historical novels, and Miss Woodhouse has done a wonderful job with this story.
