Mercy Lytton is both Mohawk and white as well as very petite. Elias DuBois has never seen a woman like her before. She is a famous, talented scout for the English with no humility. At times she is a bit sassy and feisty. Her first impression of Elias DuBois is not good. Mercy Lytton considers him to be weak in body and spirit.has ever seen. He has been severely beaten, condemned as a traitor, and only escapes hanging by joining an elaborate scheme that forces him and Mercy to work together.
The author has sprinkled inspirational messages throughout her novel. Messages to trust a God, have faith in Him, and that He loves us are abundantly clear. For me, that is of utmost importance in Christian Fiction. The characters are well defined. I knew exactly who they were, flaws and all. They were well rounded and seemed like friends more than characters. The book was well researched, the plot well done, and story well written. Everything flowed seamlessly. I truly enjoyed reading this and finding a new author.
The Captured Bride is a fantastic story. It is built around a faith theme, has great romance, adventure, and history. It is even a tale of war, with Indians. I would highly recommend this book. I rate it 5 out of 5 stars. A copy was provided by Barbour Publishing but all opinions are my own, honest ones.
