The Mayflower Bride is the first book in the Daughters of the Mayflower Series. Each book written by a different author with the first book written by Kimberley Woodhouse.
In The Mayflower Bride Mary Chapman is a Separatist in 1620 Holland in search for a better life in the New World. The story also follows William Lytton a carpenter leaving England looking for opportunities to succeed. The story follows these two as they journey to the New World facing the challenges of living on a boat with many other people of different upbringing.
I really wanted to like this book. I have really been into historical fiction lately so I thought this time period would be an interesting one to read. However, I just couldn’t get into the story. Its told in a few different perspectives but not in a way that I ever really felt invested in any of the characters. I just didn’t care what happened to them and I didn’t find the challenges they faced that big and I didn’t really care if they overcame their challenges or not.
If you like this time period and are searching for a really simple book or want a book to read but don’t want to invest to much into it then this book might be for you.
