Hello, folks today we are going to review my latest read: The Captured Bride by Michelle Griep
This book was full of endless adventure and more. It kept me at my seat and it was very well written.
When we start the book we meet a young, captive Native American girl, Mercy Lytton and her best friend and Ranger Captain Matthew Prinn. Matthew and Mercy are commanded to take the French traitor Elias Dubois to a fort in Boston over stealing gold. Mercy has been taken on in the military as a scout due to her keen eyesight. Mercy carries a lot of pain and heartaches. Due to this, she feels that God abandoned her.
Elias, Mercy, Matthew, and Rufus Bragg (the Captain’s son) are in charge of traveling through the New York forest. The group pose as a family with Elias and Mercy, as husband and wife. The trek becomes very dangerous and complicated. They run into many dangerous situations and eventually have a to bury the gold due to an Indian invasion and fight against the French. (What I believe is probably related to the French and Indian War) 🙂 It becomes a brutal fight and our travelers meet other individuals as well, which causes more issues for the group. Elias shares his faith with Mercy.
Elias and Mercy are constantly at each other’s necks, but there becomes a fondness toward each other. Will Mercy get past the fact that Elias is a traitor and show compassion? Will Mercy let go of the hurts and listen about the God Elias Dubois speaks of? Will Elias reveal the secrets he holds and who he really is? Will they survive their journey to Boston without being killed and caught in the middle of a raging battle? You’ll have to grab a copy for yourself.
