About the book:
A Bride at Last
(Bethany House, July 2015)

Abandoned by his mail-order bride, Silas Jonesey has fought an uphill battle to recover from a pattern of poor choices. Now his prayers for reconciliation have finally come true and his estranged wife has contacted him with her whereabouts.

Kate Dawson was supposed to be a mail-order bride, but upon realizing she’d been deceived about her intended groom, she’s now settled into life as a schoolteacher. When the mother of a student passes away, Kate assumes she’ll take on care of nine-year-old Anthony-until two men suddenly show up in town, claiming to be the boy’s father.

Silas can see Anthony loves Kate, so he enlists her help in reaching out to the boy and attempting to prove his paternity to the court. When a common interest in Anthony leads to an interest in each other and Silas and Kate begin to think they can overcome their rocky start, neither is prepared for the secrets and past hurts that have yet to come to light. Can Silas, Kate, and Anthony’s wounded souls bind them together or will all that stands between them leave them lonely forever?

  1. I loved the first two books in this series, and have been eagerly anticipating this novel for some time. I have to say, my favorite thing about historical fiction is the way that it takes you back in time, to centuries and people unlike any you have ever known. When they are well written, historical novels make you feel as if you are right there, whether it’s 19th century England or 15th century Scotland, or whatever the place and time. And, you get the chance to learn all about other time periods in a fun and entertaining way.

    I love the way that historical fiction allows me to live in a different time period for a little while. From reading about the way food is prepared, to the way that transportation was different, it just makes me think about days gone by.

  3. Historical fiction opens doors of discovery for me. I often am prompted by the story to further research and learn more about the locale and the period.

    Don’t understand your “giveaway” – I am guessing it is based on comments. I’d love to win this
