Book Review: The Cumberland Bride by Shannon McNear

About the Book 
Thomas Bledsoe and Kate Gruener are traveling the Wilderness Road when conflicts between natives and settlers reach a peak that will require each of them to tap into a well of courage.
A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.

Love and Adventure Are Discovered on the Wilderness Road
In 1794, when Kate Gruener’s father is ready to move the family farther west into the wilderness to farm untouched land, Kate is eager to live out her own story of adventure like he did during the War for Independence and to see untamed lands. And she sets her sights on learning more about their scout, Thomas Bledsoe. Thomas’s job is to get settlers safely across the Kentucky Wilderness Road to their destination while keeping an ear open for news of Shawnee unrest. But naïve Kate’s inquisitive nature could put them both in the middle of a rising tide of conflict. Is there more to Thomas’s story than he is willing to tell? Is there an untapped courage in Kate that can thwart a coming disaster?

Join the adventure as the Daughters of the Mayflower series continues with The Cumberland Bride by Shannon McNear

My Thoughts:
This is a newer author to me. I had read her story, The counterfeit Tory which was part of the Backcountry Bride series. I was excited to read her first full length novel. The Cumberland Bride by Shannon McNear, and the fifth installment of the Daughters of the Mayflower series is outstanding. I have read all the other ones in the series and have been loving it. This is set in 1794 which is not a time period that I read a lot about. The author has created some amazing characters. This is well written, leaving me speechless and re-reading the twists and turns. The author has created a masterpiece with this story. Her descriptions and careful research lead you on a wondeful journey. 

I received a copy of this book through Barbour publishing. All thoughts are my own.
