{{Book Review}} A Bride At Last


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?




*My Review*
This was my first time reading anything by Melissa Jagears. The story is set in  Missouri, where the main characters, Silas and Kate, have both tried to find love the "mail-order-bride" way and both failed. I honestly wasn't sure I would like this book, but by the time I was a few chapters in....I was hooked.
"A Bride At Last" is a well-written romantic story with a few surprises here and there.
