    Delightful! In book two of the Daughters of the Mayflower Series, the main character Maribel "Red" Cordoba is a spunky ten year old enamored with the lives of pirates and has her head stuck in a book. The banter she has with the captain of her ship is pure fun. Secondary characters add...

    It's been a little while since I've stayed up all night and read a book. Spring break was last week for my kids and with lots of projects and activities planned as a family, I hardly even sat down to read at all. Not even audiobooks. Well Saturday evening after all the kids were in bed...

    Loved the fun shipboard parts to this. It's got more than a few nods to classic swashbucklers, which I appreciated, as I'm a big sucker for Sabatini and such. The first two thirds was five stars, but the last third became too hurried and the ending, while satisfactory, didn't delve so ...

    "We are privateers, not pirates? We operate legally under Letters of Marque, and we conduct ourselves with honor and in accordance with the laws of France." The Pirate Bride (2018, Barbour) by Kathleen Y'Barbo is second in the The Daughters of the Mayflower series. It is a Chr...

    This is the second book in the Daughters of the Mayflower series. A wonderfully enjoyable read . I enjoyed reading about this scrap of a girl, a fiery redhead. I don't read many books taking place mostly on a ship let alone a privateer ship in the warm Caribbean. I love following the f...

    This book was not quite what I expected as I thought it would be about another woman who was on the Mayflower. Instead, it is about Maribel Cordoba, a descendent of Mary Chapman Lytton the heroine of Book 1. But it was a well written, high seas adventure with pirates, appealing charact...

    Rating 4,5 stars I loved this book. It was filled with adventure, humour, fun memorable characters and twists I did not see coming. Maribel was a fun, independent, adventurous 12 year old and later 23 year old women. I loved her love for books and adventure and how she stayed tr...

    I loved the adventure in this book! I learned the important difference between a pirate and a privateer, and loved Maribel's enthusiasm for her adventure at sea. The story begins with a young Maribel being kidnapped by her absentee father who is being chased by the infamous privateer C...

    3.5 stars The Pirate Bride was so much better than the first book, The Mayflower Bride. I really liked the characters and found it interesting how the story started out with the MC being young and then jumped ahead 11 years. I found both portions of the book to be interesting. Th...

    This book was such an enjoyable read. It followed Maribel Cordoba (Red) the young daughter of a Spanish ship captain and Jean-Luc a French ship captain. After taking over the ship of Maribel and her father, Jean-Luc forms a special place in his heart for Red, though he does not realize...

    Synopsis: As a child, Maribel was on the privateer Jean-Luc's ship. Years later, Jean-Luc has put his pirating days behind him...until a grown Maribel, who never forgot him, appears on his doorstep. Can he open his heart to someone from his former life? The Good: This was well-writt...

    The Pirate Bride was full of many interesting and dangerous situations. I feel that I learned a lot as I read the story. This book was divided into two sections. One setting took place around the time that the main character, Maribel, was a child and detailed the events that surroun...

    I enjoyed the first book in this series, but this one, not so much. Oh, actually, I really liked the first 80%. But after one of the characters (Maribel), missing 11 years, whose mother and grandfather searched for year after year, was then "found" in a convent and brought home... ...

    I read this book immediately following The Mayflower Bride since it is a series but they can be read as standalones. Maribel is the great granddaughter of Mary but that's the only real mention from the first book. This is a Christian/Young Adult/Historical Fiction book and I really enj...

    An enjoyable read full of adventure! A descendant from the Lytton family tree from book one of the series, Maribel Cordoba finds herself having quite an adventure as a twelve year old when out at sea with her estranged father. The story fast forwards to eleven years later on as she beg...

    The Pirate Bride is a real treasure. It has been a long time since I read a novel featuring a pirate or rather privateer, as Captain Jean Beaumont continually reminds Maribel. The story and its characters engulfed me from the first page. Y?Barbo has crafted an exciting tale of ad...

    In a captivating tale of the seas, Y?Barbo gives readers a unique story of history and romance. Not just your everyday pirate tale, readers will fall in love with the troubled soul of a ship captain, and an unclaimed waif destines to take ownership of his heart. A story of loss, of l...

    The Pirate Bride by Kathleen Y?Barbo. This is second in the series The Daughters of the Mayflower and is set in 1724 to 1735 in the Caribbean and New Orleans. Building on the heritage of faith seen in the first book, this was an exciting tale of the times when the relations betw...

    This book was a fun, sweet, mystery filled adventure. I felt as if I was swept away on a privateer ship in the Caribbean. With a little red headed girl who endeared herself to the crew as Red.The Captain, a handsome, feared, and brave man who had me swooning. I was captivated by this r...

    When I saw the title, I knew I couldn't resist a good pirate story and it was my first time reading this author :) It starts off a little slow for me, but the as Maribel changes ships early in the story after what happens to her father, I was hooked to see what happened next to her. I ...

    Thanks to NetGalley and Barbour Publishing for an ARC of this book! I think this book is more like a 3.5 for me. It had a lot of good things going for it. The characters really were really likable and I found myself thinking about them even after I had stopped reading. The writing ...

    Ahoy there, mateys! This book was a lot of fun. I loved Maribel?she reminded me of a swashbuckling Anne of Green Gables. I was intrigued from the very first page. While this book left me with a few unanswered questions and I felt that the pacing was a bit erratic, I still thought ...

    Book 2 in the Daughters of the Mayflower series, The Pirate Bride was a relatively quick read - coming in at 251 pages . Maribel Córdoba is a precocious 10 year old in love with reading and pirates. Her adventure on the high sea sets the course and concludes when she is a young wom...

    Synopsis: As a child, Maribel was on the privateer Jean-Luc's ship. Years later, Jean-Luc has put his pirating days behind him...until a grown Maribel, who never forgot him, appears on his doorstep. Can he open his heart to someone from his former life? The Good: This was well-writt...

    The Pirate Bride was full of many interesting and dangerous situations. I feel that I learned a lot as I read the story. This book was divided into two sections. One setting took place around the time that the main character, Maribel, was a child and detailed the events that surroun...

    I enjoyed the first book in this series, but this one, not so much. Oh, actually, I really liked the first 80%. But after one of the characters (Maribel), missing 11 years, whose mother and grandfather searched for year after year, was then "found" in a convent and brought home... ...

    I read this book immediately following The Mayflower Bride since it is a series but they can be read as standalones. Maribel is the great granddaughter of Mary but that's the only real mention from the first book. This is a Christian/Young Adult/Historical Fiction book and I really enj...

    An enjoyable read full of adventure! A descendant from the Lytton family tree from book one of the series, Maribel Cordoba finds herself having quite an adventure as a twelve year old when out at sea with her estranged father. The story fast forwards to eleven years later on as she beg...

    Delightful! In book two of the Daughters of the Mayflower Series, the main character Maribel "Red" Cordoba is a spunky ten year old enamored with the lives of pirates and has her head stuck in a book. The banter she has with the captain of her ship is pure fun. Secondary characters add...

    Loved the fun shipboard parts to this. It's got more than a few nods to classic swashbucklers, which I appreciated, as I'm a big sucker for Sabatini and such. The first two thirds was five stars, but the last third became too hurried and the ending, while satisfactory, didn't delve so ...

    This book was not quite what I expected as I thought it would be about another woman who was on the Mayflower. Instead, it is about Maribel Cordoba, a descendent of Mary Chapman Lytton the heroine of Book 1. But it was a well written, high seas adventure with pirates, appealing charact...

    Rating 4,5 stars I loved this book. It was filled with adventure, humour, fun memorable characters and twists I did not see coming. Maribel was a fun, independent, adventurous 12 year old and later 23 year old women. I loved her love for books and adventure and how she stayed tr...

    When I saw the title, I knew I couldn't resist a good pirate story and it was my first time reading this author :) It starts off a little slow for me, but the as Maribel changes ships early in the story after what happens to her father, I was hooked to see what happened next to her. I ...

    Thanks to NetGalley and Barbour Publishing for an ARC of this book! I think this book is more like a 3.5 for me. It had a lot of good things going for it. The characters really were really likable and I found myself thinking about them even after I had stopped reading. The writing ...

    Ahoy there, mateys! This book was a lot of fun. I loved Maribel?she reminded me of a swashbuckling Anne of Green Gables. I was intrigued from the very first page. While this book left me with a few unanswered questions and I felt that the pacing was a bit erratic, I still thought ...

    Book 2 in the Daughters of the Mayflower series, The Pirate Bride was a relatively quick read - coming in at 251 pages . Maribel Córdoba is a precocious 10 year old in love with reading and pirates. Her adventure on the high sea sets the course and concludes when she is a young wom...

    My imagination and my heart were captured and swept out to sea on a Pirate (cough, clears throat, errr) Privateer ship! I enjoyed the action and the drama in the story. I was a greedy book dragon devouring every word! These fantastic characters will take captive of your heart. In th...

    Thanks to NetGalley and Barbour Publishing for an ARC of this book! I think this book is more like a 3.5 for me. It had a lot of good things going for it. The characters really were really likable and I found myself thinking about them even after I had stopped reading. The writing ...

    Ahoy there, mateys! This book was a lot of fun. I loved Maribel?she reminded me of a swashbuckling Anne of Green Gables. I was intrigued from the very first page. While this book left me with a few unanswered questions and I felt that the pacing was a bit erratic, I still thought ...

    My imagination and my heart were captured and swept out to sea on a Pirate (cough, clears throat, errr) Privateer ship! I enjoyed the action and the drama in the story. I was a greedy book dragon devouring every word! These fantastic characters will take captive of your heart. In th...

    The premise and historical context of this story were fascinating but the execution missed the mark for me. There was a lot of telling, not enough showing, and the character and plot development just weren?t there. Quite a bit was going on plot wise, but the author glossed over the l...

    Delightful! In book two of the Daughters of the Mayflower Series, the main character Maribel "Red" Cordoba is a spunky ten year old enamored with the lives of pirates and has her head stuck in a book. The banter she has with the captain of her ship is pure fun. Secondary characters add...

    Rating 4,5 stars I loved this book. It was filled with adventure, humour, fun memorable characters and twists I did not see coming. Maribel was a fun, independent, adventurous 12 year old and later 23 year old women. I loved her love for books and adventure and how she stayed tr...
