A War-Torn Countryside Is No Place for a Lady
Mercy Lytton is a lady like none other. Raised amongst the Mohawks, she straddles two cultures, yet each are united in one cause. . .to defeat the French. Born with a rare gift of unusually keen eyesight, she is chosen as a scout to accompany a team of men on a dangerous mission. Yet it is not her life that is threatened. It is her heart. Condemned as a traitor, Elias Dubois faces the gallows. At the last minute, he is offered his freedom if he consents to accompany a stolen shipment of French gold to a nearby fort—but he is the one they stole it from in the first place. It turns out that the real thief is the beguiling woman, Mercy Lytton, for she steals his every waking thought. Can love survive divided loyalties in a backcountry wilderness?
The Captured Bride was filled with history, adventure, heartache, romance, with a great touch of mystery. Scenes so vividly described I felt as though I was right there witnessing them. Scenes so heart breaking at times you wanted to reach out and comfort them. Just beautifully written.
So many great charactors who knew God and his promises. By the life they led there were able to show others how to lean on him when times came to tough to bear. God was just all the way throughout.
I admit the first few pages through me off and I almost quit reading. I think it was too much information for a book I knew nothing about. So glad I kept on because this ended up being great Christian historical read that I did not want to put down. A great great read.
I was given this book by Netgalley but was not required to give a positive review.
