    While The Alamo Bride didn t steal my heart like the author s prior book in the series The Pirate Bride, it was a well written story I especially enjoyed the way the author painted a picture of the geography I could easily visualize in my mind the setting.Ellis is a lovely name and a compelling leading character She has spunk and stubbornness like her grandmother along with a love for family and Texas.This series continues to be such a wonderful journey through histor...

    Having read The Pirate Bride where I adored Maribel, it was fun to read about her great granddaughter, Ellis, who had a lot of the fun qualities I enjoyed in Maribel Some of my favourite parts were interactions between her and her grandfather where her strong will came across in a humorousness way.Clay, with his memory issues, was also an interesting male lead and I enjoyed the interaction between the two.The author did a great job with describing the setting and there was a lot of action which kept me turning the pages and not knowing what to expect.Even though I enjoyed the story, I m only rating it 3.5 stars Thinking back on this story now, there was a lot of things that felt either rushed or unfinished for me I never really new what Clay did in the past which he wanted to correct, the treasure hunt which sounded promising i...

    The Alamo Bride by Kathleen Y Barbo is book seven in The Daughters of the Mayflower series from Barbour Publishing I have enjoyed these peeks into history Each one of these stories is unique and I gleaned new information into these periods of history I eagerly await the next books The Alamo Bride is very well written Ms Y Barbo weaves a very believable story There is the quandary of Clay Gentry, a New Orleans Grey soldier, who gets injured and loses his memory He only knows he has a mission to perform He is nursed back to health by Ellis Valmont Together they travel to The Alamo to rescue her brother, Thomas As memory gradually returns, Clay s mission is revealed as having something to do with helping Texas win freedom from Mexico There is excitement as they face danger The overarching theme is taken from Psalm 91 Ellis has chosen to memorize this Psalm and Clay is very familiar with it The Valmont family takes God and His Word very seriously, attributing all to God...

    3.5 I ve enjoyed this Daughters of the Mayflower series a lot I have two that I need to catch up on and am looking forward to them.Kathleen Y Barbo wrote a previous book in this series, The Pirate Bride I thoroughly enjoyed it and her writing style That was my first time reading a full length novel by this author I did enjoy reading, The Alamo Bride, but it didn t capture my attention as much as, The Pirate Bride, did It was fun though that the main character, Ellis, in this book was talked about being similar to her great grandmother, the main character from, The Pirate Bride That was fun to have that connection again.For me the story really picked up once Ellis and Clay had their first meeting It was a good amount into the story But there was some different setting up that the author had to achieve before they could meet and interact I loved Ellis as she was trying to help and heal Clay, especially with trying to interpret his delirious ramblings when he was unconscious I did skim a little bit here and there Not necessarily because of the story or the writing but with my busy schedule and wanting to see what happened with these characters story.The ending was great It came full circle and I loved the sweet family reunion There is a strong sense of family throughout this book and I really liked that as...

    Whatever else you know or do not know about yourself, you have the heart and mind of a hero Jean Paul Valmont to Clay GentryA tale of espionage, war, intrigue, hidden memories, and a feisty red head This tale brings together beautiful, lively Ellis Valmont, a young woman from Texas, and Claiborne Clay Gentry, a member of the New Orleans Greys, a volunteer militia formed during the Texas War of Independence As these two young people from disparate backgrounds work to piece Clay s memory back together, their conflicting distrust and attraction creates a continuous thread of tension in this story.It is fall of 1835 when Ellis finds Clay lying in a boat along the Brazos River with multiple serious wounds As she works to nurse him amid family drama, she stealthily works to make sense of his unconscious ramblings about the war, treasure, and an important meeting Ellis tries to put together the bits of information she gathers as Clay struggles to regain his memory in bits and pieces Mistrust and suspicion keep the two from sharing their information initially Rich in historical detail, this story offers intrigue and romance as well In addition, subtle reminders of faith are woven through the story Lively characters, historical settings, and a captivating plot ensure that this book will capt...

    The Alamo Bride by Kathleen Y Barbo is a historical romance that takes place during the time of the Alamo and is wonderfully Christian based It has a powerful message that deals with trusting and believing in God and trusting God when one is unsure of what the future holds.I found the book hard to put down once I started It is a well written novel by this author and was filled with an abundance of history, action...

    Kathleen Y Barbo s love for her home state shines through this wonderful addition to the Daughters of the Mayflower series The books in this series can be read as a stand alone and penned by several authors Most of the story of the Alamo Bride is set away from the historic site, in the days leading up to the famous battle of Texas fight for independence from Mexico While the historic details are definitely a part of the story, most of the story centers primarily around Ellis and her care for an injured stranger His injuries cause a memory loss, and his incoherent ramblings while healing make it difficult for Ellis to determine his loyalties I loved how both relied on their ...

    As an adopted Texan I lived there for 32 years and having taken a college class in Texas history, I appreciated the author s wonderful historical research on Texas battle for independence She brought the life and times of the Texians into a vivid picture that set the reader right there as it was all happening She also pulled in some lesser known facts such as the New Orleans Greys role in the fight for independence My favorite character was Ellis She was a strong, independent, feisty woman just like her grandmother, Maribel, who starred in Y Barbo s Pirate Bride The slowly developing relationship between Ellis and Clay didn t overshadow the main focus of the war for independence which I really appreciated I wish there had been a little action throughout the story as the first half seemed to focus predominantly on Ellis caring for Clay There wasn t much depicted of the actual fighting itself to give the reader a picture of what the battle for independence was really lik...

    The newest addition to the Daughters of the Mayflower series has plenty of action, interesting history and courageous characters The author does a thorough job of reminding readers of the family s history, connecting back to characters from her previous book in the series, The Pirate Bride The introduction and historical notes at the end fill in the blanks about the real people and events mentioned in the text, showing her careful research This made me curious and had me looking up names like Jean LaFitte, Sam Houston, and William Claiborne, and their connections to Andrew Jackson He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust Both Ellis and Clay take great comfort in reading the Book of Psalms, focusing on Psalm 91 Trusting in the Lord for help and comfort, and doing what they believe to be right was an important theme throughout In a time of war that can be tricky, especially when helping wounded soldiers who appear to be spies or possible enemies Ellis is brave, and willingly serves others with her knowledge of doctoring using herbs She seems to carry the burden for her family a lot It was unclear what Clay was hiding from his past, and didn t seem to matter in the end The idea of a possible treasure hunt was intriguing Readers who enjoy stories based on real historical events, with a clean romance, may like this latest addition to the series They all easily read as stand alones The Pirate Bride will fill in of the backsto...
