Welcome to Memorable Monday! The purpose of Memorable Monday is to showcase an influential book read in the past that still sticks with you today. This fun Monday morning post is hosted by the lovely Becca at The Becca Files.
This week, I am featuring:
The Cumberland Bride
Daughters of the Mayflower #5
by: Shannon McNear
I am currently reading The Alamo Bride, book 7 in the Daughters of the Mayflower series. I have really been enjoying this series. It’s filled with excellent and unique characters, the settings are interesting and vast, and the adventures have all been quite engrossing and engaging. If you have not read a book in this series, I highly recommend all of the books. When it came time to choosing a book for today’s post, I realized choosing my favorite from this series would be an appropriate plug to this really good collection of stories.
The Cumberland Bride, so far, is my absolute favorite. It is SOOOOOOOOOO good. To find out why I love it so much, click HERE to read my full review, and then go purchase a copy of the book ASAP. You will not be disappointed that you did.
About the Book
Thomas Bledsoe and Kate Gruener are traveling the Wilderness Road when conflicts between natives and settlers reach a peak that will require each of them to tap into a well of courage.
A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.
Love and Adventure Are Discovered on the Wilderness Road
In 1794, when Kate Gruener’s father is ready to move the family farther west into the wilderness to farm untouched land, Kate is eager to live out her own story of adventure like he did during the War for Independence and to see untamed lands. And she sets her sights on learning more about their scout, Thomas Bledsoe. Thomas’s job is to get settlers safely across the Kentucky Wilderness Road to their destination while keeping an ear open for news of Shawnee unrest. But naïve Kate’s inquisitive nature could put them both in the middle of a rising tide of conflict. Is there more to Thomas’s story than he is willing to tell? Is there an untapped courage in Kate that can thwart a coming disaster?
Join the adventure as the Daughters of the Mayflower series continues with The Cumberland Bride by Shannon McNear.
