The Book ✯✯✯✯
Continuing our generational journey in the series Daughters of the Mayflower, we now focus on feisty and beautiful Emeline and handsome, stern Owen Masters at the end of the War of 1812.
While the romance is certainly the focus, don't think you're only going to get a sweet and clean historical romance. Instead, there is danger and intrigue-- Masters is a spy for the Americans by choice and Emiline is a spy by circumstance.
While some books in the series carry the Christian aspect with a light hand, Tyndall hits hard with this one. It isn't preachy, but philosophical and theological in its approach with both leads realizing they focused too much on all the rules and not enough on the only thing that matters: Jesus.
They're both intelligent and witty in their conversations, easily sniping at each other and hitting home. And the action keeps this longer book clipping along. It was the perfect one-day read as the weather turns colder.
Keep in mind that while I have read and loved all of the books in this series (and am already looking forward to The Alamo Bride) any of these books can be read as absolute standalone.
