The Reluctant Bridegroom is book 7 of Gilbert Morris' Historical Fiction series, "House of Winslow", which follows one family's line down through America's history, starting with the first pilgrims. Each book can stand alone or be read as part of the series. Though the books are filled with rich, accurate historical detail, they are great recreational reading and have fun plots with a touch of wholesome romance. Check my list for more in this series.
Every time I start a book in this series its alsways so hard for me to put the book down. This was another wonderful one by Gilbert Morris. I stayed up late many nights reading this one becuase I could never find the perfect stopping place for the night. I look forward to reading all his books.
I agree with all the previous reviews. This is an exceptional historical Christian series following one family through the generations from the time the Pilgrims came to America.
Gilbert Morris is a wonderful writer, and the books are interesting and hard to put down.
Love this whole series! Would recommend to anyone!
I loved this story as I do the entire House of Winslow series. I am not a deeply religious person; I am however a very spiritual person. Gilbert Morris has a way with words that just speaks clearly to me. I love his portrayal of the characters, with all of their flaws. His historical accounts are not just factual but a very integral part of each novel. I would say this series is a "thumbs up!"
This is a great series for those who are interested in exciting historical novels with a Christian message. The books follow one family "The Winslows" from their religious persecution in England, to the trip on the Mayflower to America. They continue following family members through the first winter in the new country, on to the Revolutionary War, the Civil war, the move west, etc.
The characters are exciting and each new book in the series has the children and grandchildren as the main characters, although the previous generation still has a part so they are easy to follow. There are many books in this series, and I just finished Book 6. Gilbert Morris is an excellent author and each book stands on its own but I'm glad I started at the beginning even though it may take me a year or more to finish them all. It's worth it!
