One of my favorite parts about blogging is all the great books I get to share with you. Today's book, A Bride at Last, is historical fiction. It's hard to imagine in this day and age of "instant everything" a world in which mail order brides could even be a thing. That is the era of our story.
Schoolteacher Kate befriends a local mother and child, and when the mom dies, she wants to care for young Anthony. Except 2 men step forward claiming to be his father. This book takes us through their attempts to establish paternity in the court, and the hesitant friendship that develops between Kate and Silas, one of the two men.
I enjoyed this book, and would have no qualms about my teen daughter reading it, as well. It is actually book 3 of the Unexpected Brides series, but can be read on it's own, as I did. Having read this one, however, I found my interest piqued at the description of book 2, A Bride in Store, so I may have to go back and read the first two.
Can Silas and Kate overcome their rocky start and experience healing—and possibly love? Discover the answer in Melissa Jagears' new book, A Bride at Last. Neither Kate nor Silas is prepared for the secrets and past hurts that have yet to come to light as they attempt to prove nine-year-old Anthony's paternity to the court. Can their wounded souls bind them together or will all that stands between them leave them lonely forever?
