A truly beautiful love story..
This incredibly charming story is dedicated to the courageous pioneers who helped settle and shape America, perhaps never realizing the great cost that would often be debited from their lives. ‘His Beloved Bride’ poignantly portrays the laudable bravery found in these folk, but then also shows the crushing heartbreak that’s just as much a part of this challenging time in history.
The likable, straight-talking, no-nonsense Phillip Dickerson needs a wife and child so he’s able to claim his inheritance. What with working so hard on his large land claim, he’s had no time to even think about courting. So when he overhears that Grace Hawthorne is widowed and alone with an infant and is lacking proper shelter, food, and fuel, Phillip naturally sees marriage as a solution to both their dilemmas. Can love grow out of practicality and if so, will it be robust enough to withstand tragedy?
I don’t know that I've ever smiled so often or for so long while reading before! Those smiles were provoked by the entertaining story-telling, the sigh-worthy devotion and love... Then moments later, I was in tears! Author Ruth Logan Herne has truly done a masterful job of evoking emotions for her characters. She also effortlessly inspires and uplifts the reader with this deeply beautiful and heart-warming tale, reminding us to always trust in God’s goodness and grace. Highly recommended!!
