A Bride at Last

I am a book reviewer for Bethany House, I am given a free book to read.  The only requirement I have is to give an  honest review.

 The lastest book I have read is "A Bride at Last" by Melissa Jagears, it is her third book in the
Unexpected Bride series.

As soon as I read the first book, I knew I would have to read all three. Melissa has a way of capturing
your heart and you feel like you are right there in the story and just don't want to put the book down.

One of the main characters Silas Jonesey has fought a battle of recovering from making bad choices.
He had been abandoned by a mail-order bride. He had prayed for reconciliation and was contacted by his estranged wife. Upon his arrival to the town of her whereabouts he learns of her death. Little did he know that she had a nine year old son. Could the son be his, the son he never knew about. How can he find out. And to make matters worse another man shows up claiming the boy as his.

 Another character Kate Dawson, is Anthony's teacher, she had been helping out with the care of him and his mother. Kate assumes that she will take on the care of Anthony.
But what is going to happen when  two men appear on the scene claiming that they are or could be Anthony's father.

Silas can see that Anthony loves Kate. How can he prove his paternity to the courts.
Will the common interest that Silas and Kate have in Anthony lead to an interest in each other,
or will the secrets and past hurts come out to haunt their relationship?

You will have to read the book to find out. I enjoyed this book so much and recommend it highly.
I believe that it was my favorite in the series.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
