Second in the Series "Brides of the West" set back in the 1800's. June is the youngest of three sisters to be going out west as a bride order. Upon her arrival she finds her groom to be very ill. She faces many descions, one especially to return to Coldwater, MI. She feels as if she is being tested by God. She was raised to believe everything as a purpose and she feels she must fullfill that purpose but, everything seems to go wrong. An enjoyable and quick read. Looking forward to reading "Hope" the third in the series. dg
Lori Copeland captures the hearts of Christian readers who like romance, good morals, and a good story placed in the 1870's. It has biblical truths and application which is delightful to read. I highly recommend this book!
I really enjoyed this series. This is my least favorite of the series, but it was still good. I like that she can tell a love story without dramatic tempers and crazy sex scenes, all the while keeping my attention. I looked forward to finding out what happened next.
(Synopsis of back cover)

June's aunt and her friend Samantha run this orphanage. June is faced with some difficult choices involving her faith and her heart.
