The ship and return to what she knew Even though Kathleen had not been happy with her situation it was all she had Forbidden Stranger ever known As the shoreline faded into the morning mist her only certainty was that she was bound for America to marry a man whose name she did notven know and whose face she had never seenOn the other side of the Atlantic Donnigan Harrison anxiously awaits Kathleen's arrival on a prairie farm far from her port of arrival in Boston He has known the wonder of a dream fulfilled a snug fram.

25 stars This was okay The first section where the two halves of the couple choose to participate in a mail order bride program meet have to learn to work out their differences was great I cared about the characters The problem came when they should have been falling in love but instead had children and then there was basically no discussion of how they felt for Snowy River Man each othe What I really like about this book is the fact that it doesn tnd when the people get Night Moves (Harlequin Blaze engagedmarried The majority of the book takes place after the wedding I like seeing the relationship grow and deepen and hearing about the homemaking and all the children I guess my review is different than most because I got a bit bored with the love story part and loved thend better when they started to search for religious meaning to their lives For me that was the good part I got and Les brumes d'avalon : roman excited as they without any outside help or direction gradually discovered their own faith and salvation Thending made me cry it was so sweet and joyous and wonderful This is my sixth Janette Oke book to read This book hands downis the best Oke book thus far Characterization is developed to the point that you can feel the nervousness both of the main characters Donnigan and Kathleen Malakai (Wicked Games, experience as they made the decision to sign up and follow through with the idea of the mail order bride You can feel the anxiety Kathleenxperienced with the haystack fire and also with the loss of Taryn Donnigan s search for God s plan of salvation was thought provoking as we take the presence of churches Bibles pastors as a way of life Interspersed throughout the book were bits of humor and wit A Bride for Donnigan is an all round great book This was the second time I read this novel I went to it for a light read amidst a family A new look for this Janette Oke novel Responding to an advertisement Kathleen O'Malley crosses the ocean to America to become a new brideResponding to an Advertisement She Crossed an Ocean to Meet a Total Stranger and Became a Mail Order BrideKathleen O'Malley stood on the deck of the Barreth Lily and watched the land she'd called home for than a dozen years slip from her view She had thought she would be glad to see the last of it but she was not Emotions in turmoil her whole being yearned to slip from.

This couple wasn t The Carpenters Wife and Heart of Stone entirely content until they discovered and met The One who was missing from their lives This isn t so much for a younger audience in my opinion they are married so a few things are mentioned there but it s handled very well and didn t bother me This book was strange for me It started off really good The story was believable and the author really developed the story for the main characters Kathleen She wasssentially an orphan being raised by her mean Step Mother Her plot was bad Celtic Fire (Rogue Angel, enough for her to consider signing up to take the voyage west and marry a man she has never met On the other hand the farmer she marries was a littlembarrassed to order a bride He was very lonely and longed for help and companionship But lets be honest he is a man so we know there was to the story but the author didn t go thereUpon meeting The Family Plan each other the author continued to develop the story and introduced the characters well I kept asking myself how did people do this I cannot imagine having to marry a stranger How would that workThe story started to change when they had children It was still an interesting book and things were happening but then Donnigan the farmer started asking around about God and religion The last 30 pages Inded up skimming It became so A Family Practice encompassed with God and why this was that way and what does it all mean The story that the book started with justnded and it became all about the family looking for Religion Then the book just nds Very strangeOverall this is not one of the better books from author Janette Oke I usually like her and although she is a Christian author she doesn t harp on things and she includes it in the story so that the characters have depth and I understand them This was not the case in this book I was disappointed. E cabin the sturdy log barn and outbuildings a fine herd of livestock and crops in the field that made his yes sparkle Yet Donnigan felt a loneliness on the western frontier that pierced his very soul With so limited opportunities for finding a wife the notion of ordering a wife that once seemed unthinkable had come to make some sense Now that the time has come Donnigan feels like a small boy waiting for ChristmasBut Donnigan's anticipation is overshadowed with terrifying uncertainties What have I done.
