Stubborn Hearts Clash on a Cattle Drive
Eliza Gentry’s pursuit of marriage to the son of her family’s sworn enemy has cost her greatly. Furious at his daughter’s choices, her father sends her off with the cattle drive heading toward Fort Worth and the Barnhart ranch, but under the watchful eye of Wyatt Creed, a Pinkerton man he has hired to see to her safety. With danger at every turn—not the least of which to his heart—can Wyatt Creed keep his focus with Eliza Gentry around? Is the Chisholm Trail a place for falling in love or a place to die at the hands of cattle thieves?
Join the adventure as the Daughters of the Mayflower series continues with The Chisholm Trail Bride by Kathleen Y’Barbo.
Reviewer: Laura J. Davis
The Chisholm Trail Bride by Kathleen Y'Barbo is book number twelve in the Daughters of the Mayflower series and it is a keeper!
With a strong cast of characters that were well fleshed out, I lost track of the time reading it. I have read all of the books in this series and I think this one is my favourite. While the story had a grim, but intriguing plot, there was still plenty of humour, faith-filled elements and of course romance.
I loved Eliza, hated Ben Barnhart (I just wanted to punch him in the face) and adored Wyatt who loved Eliza. Wyatt's devotion to Eliza reminded me of God's love for us. Wyatt loved Eliza from afar, intervened when she needed help and basically kept his distance until she was ready for the truth. God's like that too.
You will love the opening lines (word of warning, you will be hard pressed to not sing them). And as always with this series, you do not have to read the other books as it can be read as a standalone. I highly recommend it!
