The Patriot Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower #4) by Kimberley Woodhouse

Faith Jackson and Matthew Weber are both working covertly to aid the Patriot cause. But will they be willing to sacrifice all for their fledgling country?


Faith Jackson is a wealthy widow, friend of George Washington, and staunch supporter of the Patriot cause. Matthew Weber is friends with both Ben Franklin and his son William, who increasingly differ in their political views; and Matthew finds himself privy to information on both sides of the conflict. When a message needs to get to a spy among the Loyalists, Faith bravely steps up and in turn meets Matthew Weber. Suddenly she believes she could love again. But someone else has his eye on the Faith she portrays in elite social circles. What will Matthew and Faith have to sacrifice for the sake of their fledgling country?

My Thoughts:

Rich with historical details this page-turning story takes readers on a journey through time back to the tumultuous beginnings of our county. Neighbors and even family find themselves on conflicting sides as a new nation is created to ensure that it’s people continue to enjoy the freedoms they anticipated enjoying when they left their native homeland to carve out a living in this vast new land.

With delightfully unique characters, and an exciting plot line of espionage and mystery readers are sure to find much to enjoy in this latest addition to the Daughters of the Mayflower collection. Readers who haven’t yet enjoyed the earlier stories, will not feel lost jumping right in with The Patriot Bride. However, I’d encourage you to make time to enjoy the other stories as well, as they are equally delightful!

Faith Jackson is a feisty heroine with sharp mind, and strong opinions. She is independent and able to take care of not only herself but of those in her circle of influence. Her efforts to further the Patriot cause lead her to volunteering to carry secret correspondence to a spy deeply entrenched in the Loyalist camp. But will she have to sacrifice more than she first thought for the sake of the Patriot cause?

Those who enjoy Colonial period stories will not want to miss out on this page-turning experience. I give this book 4.5 stars and encourage you to pick up this story to enjoy at your earliest convenience.

(I receive complimentary books for review from publishers, publicists, and/or authors, including Netgalley. I am not required to write positive reviews. The opinions I have expressed are my own.)
