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?

I absolutely loved this book! I am a fan of Melissa's books anyways and once I read the description for "A Bride At Last," I knew I must read this one as well! Kate was intended to be a mail-order bride, but things did not work out, and Silas was abandoned by his mail-order bride and both have tried to move on from these incidents. As these two individuals find themselves fighting for a common cause (child) the past hurts and secrets intertwine as well. I have always loved reading stories that have mail-order brides as I find the concept exciting and scary at the same time and of course things do not always work out as intended as was the case with these two characters. This is such a sweet story though of love, family and overcoming past hurts. I highly recommend this story as well for a sweet and inspiring read.
