THE LIBERTY BRIDE by MARYLU TYNDALL
I am really enjoying this series and the addition of this book is a wonderful story set during the War of 1812. It is a scary time as the Americans and the British are at war. Emeline is on her way home when an attack on her father's ship finds her in danger. I think I would have to do some fast talking myself in order to be spared by these men.
Soon Emeline finds herself telling the men she is really a spy for the British army.Will First Lieutenant Owen Masters believe her? She is taking a big risk but desperate times call for desperate measures.The author skillfully takes us aboard the ship as we sail across the waters. Now that Owen thinks Emeline is a spy, that puts him in a little quandary. He has a secret of his own that could change everything.
I enjoyed the wisdom that Emeline's father has shared with her over the years. He has always told her to be a good and proper lady. It is getting hard for her to do that when she resorts to lies . Living on the ship is hard at times when the men on board are not exactly respectful of women. Eealine and Owen are starting to have a love/hate relationship but will that change when secrets are found out? I loved how the author showed how Emeline depended on her faith and was distraught when she felt she went against God.
The story is full of mystery and find Emeline and Owen on working together. Will they be able to get word to the Americans before the British come? Can Owen trust Emeline with his secret? It's a great story that captures a time when war was at hand at the enemy was close by to attack.
I received a copy of this book from Barbour Publishing . The review is my own opinion.
