Her Pilgrim Family Had Nurtured Her in an Atmosphere of Religious and Political Freedom--Now Enemies of That Freedom Threatened Her Very Life!The Captive Bride takes the Winslow family beyond the Pilgrim settlement at Plymouth to assist in building the great new nation. For a time the Winslow dream seemed to have gone down with a sinking ship, but Rachel revives the spark of hope. As free-thinking and spirited as her mother and her grandfather Gilbert, Rachel faces capture by those she wishes to help, pressures to conform and, ultimately, a test of forgiveness beyond human accomplishment.Is marriage the only possibility for her? Is her faith her own? Can she face unjust imprisonment--even death--without retreat?The religious freedom and fervor which had marked the young colony might be its undoing.
