Daniel owns a restaurant and he is looking forward to reuniting with his sister Olivia whom he has not seen in years. Now, Olivia is a grown woman who has experienced much within her young life, and its impact causes her to decide she will forever live alone. Joseph came to the area along with hundreds of others to find gold. Now, he has a manager to run the mine for him while he pursues other avenues.
The beauty in the story was not the budding romance for Olivia but how the three main characters bonded, prayed together and did Bible study as well. The study wasn’t just for them; it was open to any who desired to join. The novel is a glowing example of loving people where they are, letting God touch their hearts and transform them, and enduring heartache while allowing God to bring healing.
I have read the entire series and most of them I have thoroughly enjoyed, and this one is one of my favorites! Coming soon are two new novels to the series: The Express Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse (July 2019) and The Rebel Bride (December 2019). Here is a great way to follow a family legacy throughout history and see how the legacy of faith speaks to the next generation.
One of the things that I really liked about Joseph Sawyer was that he was willing to take things slowly and build a friendship with Olivia. I also enjoyed the strong emphasis on prayer and trusting God that was displayed by Joseph, Daniel, and Olivia throughout the story.
The historical content was great. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area but most of what I learned about the Gold Rush in school has been lost over the years. It was nice to get a look at the attitudes of the men in San Francisco at this time through the eyes of a god-fearing woman.

I give The Golden Bride 4 stars for its story rich in History.
I would recommend this book to Historical Fiction/ Christian/Romance Fans.
Olivia was one gutsy, feisty young woman. But her negativity and self-doubt as well as her lack of faith all seemed to hinder her from being all that she could be. Daniel and Joseph were both wonderful male heroes. Daniel was caring and supportive of Olivia and made sure his sister was kept safe. Joseph was a swoon worthy hero who had had a rough start in life; but once he found salvation, he became strong and caring towards his fellow man. I loved how they all support one another in their faith journey and thought the daily Bible study was a wonderful idea for this rough and tumble town.
With a hint of suspense, a touch of romance, a strong cast of characters, and a well researched San Francisco setting, this was another great story in the series of the Daughters of the Mayflower. I will hate to say goodbye to the Lytton family and their descendants when this series ends.
