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?

One of the best historical romances I have read in a really long time! Seriously, this book grabbed me from the start and I enjoyed every part of it! A Bride at Last is actually the third book in the Unexpected Brides series, however, I was able to read the book without feeling lost and confused. I will be going back to read the others though for sure. The book flowed great and I actually read the book in only one day (thank goodness for a 13 hour road trip). It was full of great action with a little suspense, awesome characters, a well-developed plot and an adorable cover! A book totally worth reading!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
BUY IT: You can purchase A Bride at Last online through Amazon.com; it is also available at your favorite local Christian book retailer from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group
