I have been reading the Daughters of the Mayflower series since book one and have enjoyed all of them. The Express Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse did not disappoint!
It is filled with murder, mystery, romance and even a Bible study on Daniel! This book had me from the get go. And even though this is the ninth book in the series, it can be read as a standalone, so don't despair if you think you have to "catch up" first - you don't. Although I highly recommend all the books in this series.
I loved how the characters grew in their faith, but all their flaws were shown beforehand. The reader has no doubt that no matter how bad you think you are, God is merciful and forgiving to all who seek Him with a repentant heart. Forgiveness is an important theme in this book and makes it all the more touching at the end.
A thrilling story that captivates the imagination and the heart. I highly recommend it!
