First Book of the Year 2018: The Mayflower Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse

Sheila from Book Journey is sponsoring First Book of the Year for the fifth year in a row.

Today at her blog she has posted pictures of those of us who submitted our first book choices (can you find me?).

Here's a hint: I'll be reading The Mayflower Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse.

Mary Chapman boards the Speedwell in 1620 as a Separatist seeking a better life in the New World. William Lytton embarks on the Mayflower as a carpenter looking for opportunities to succeed—and he may have found one when a man from the Virginia Company offers William a hefty sum to keep a stealth eye on company interests in the new colony. The season is far too late for good sailing and storms rage, but reaching land is no better as food is scarce and the people are weak. Will Mary survive to face the spring planting and unknown natives? Will William be branded a traitor and expelled?

What will your first book of 2018 be? Why did you choose it? Any 2018 releases you're looking forward to?

Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year!

There you are! Found you! I wish that each photo linked to the participant's page, but I guess that would be a LOT of work for Sheila.

Enjoy your book, and thanks for visiting mine.
