Today I'm joining Clash of the Titles in celebrating the most recent CLASH winner:
A BRIDE AT LAST by Melissa Jagears! 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?
Here's what Publisher's Weekly has to say:In [Jagears'] latest novel [A Bride at Last], . . . the characters are all well-balanced and engaging: Silas' struggle with his failed marriage, struggling faith, and dark past makes him sympathetic; Kate's commitment to Anthony gives her depth and pathos; and their romance develops realistically . . . a memorable read for fans of redemptive historical romances.
