The Captured Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower #3) Reviews
I liked the setting as I’ve not read many books set during the French and Indian war and the covers of this series are so gorgeous. Overall this book was interesting and light, if not a little cheesy with the romance and heavy with the telling vs. showing. A good book when you’re looking for a little adventure in your reading but you don’t want to be consumed by your fiction.
The Captured Bride is an exciting, fast-paced story that contains a wonderful mixture of mystery and romance. The two main characters, Mercy and Elias are complex, realistic, and I loved both of them. Mercy is strong-willed yet struggles with insecurities and guilt. Elias deals with feelings of failure and regret. As much as I love history, I don’t know more than the basics about the colonial days in America, so I greatly enjoyed the information the author weaves throughout the story. There is a ...more
I absolutely loved this book! It’s full of adventure and a bit of romance. So much happens through the course of this story, yet it doesn’t feel rushed at all. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline. I loved Mercy and Elias. Matthew was a great character as well. This is a very well written book. Michelle did a wonderful job! I highly recommend this book! This book is perfect for readers of Laura Frantz and Lori Benton.

In true Last of the Mohicans style, follow the adventure of half-breed scout Mercy Lytton as she attempts to help get a load of gold across war-torn countryside. Dangers abound, without and within, and especially from the handsome traitor, Elias Dubois.
I endorsed this book and received it from the author/publisher ahead of release day so am mystified why there are 2 other reviews here left by people who can't possibly have read it (see author's website/blog post for confirmation). My review, after thoroughly enjoying this 18th-century story, is 5 glowing stars for high quality writing, witty dialogue, gritty characters, setting, and plot, and far more. Griep is one of the finest historical authors out there, in the CBA or otherwise, and her ab ...more
This is a complex book depicting a highly-volatile time in history.
In true Griep fashion, the sense of setting is immersive, so full of historical details and behavior. The conflict and tension doesn't let go until the very end, only shifting in nature (will she go one way or the other)?
Elias and Mercy are very different. At least, they think they have nothing in common with each other. As the story progresses, they discover they are bound by the same sense of honor and justice.
Elias is a tru ...more
*Thanks to NetGalley for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own. A favorable review was not required.*
What drives me nuts is I want to know the genealogy from William and Mary Lytton to Mercy Lytton!
Mercy's mother was captured by Wyandot braves and then "saved" by a Mohwak brave. Mercy is a "mixed breed" as people meanly call her. But while her mother taught her about God and how to be a lady as best she could, Mercy grew up to be an Indian woman. A fine scout, she works with a ranger, Mat ...more
The Captured Bride by Michelle Griep is book # 3 in the Daughter of the Mayflower series.
This series has become one of my favorites.
The story is totally captivating. It is reminiscent of The Last of the Mohicans by Cooper only infinitely more readable. In this case the scout is Mercy Lytton.
Mercy Lytton is one tough lady. She is the offspring of an Indian chief and a captured, Christian, white woman. Mercy is very independent and she has exceptional eyesight, a good trait in a scout. She is cho ...more
