Deeply Devoted by Maggie Brendan

Pages: 332
Format: Paperback

When Catharine Olsen leaves Holland for America as a mail-order bride, she brings along some extra baggage: two sisters, her mother's set of Blue Willow china, and a tragic past. When she arrives in Cheyenne, Wyoming, she promptly marries Peter Andersen and dreams of starting life over in this rugged land. Peter is kind and patient with Catharine and accommodating to her sisters. His mother, however, is not. When she begins a campaign to sabotage Peter's marriage, Catharine is distraught, worried that her secret past will be discovered. Will her life end up as nothing but broken pieces? Or will these trials make her stronger?

Readers will love negotiating the clash of cultures and class as a highborn European and a Western wheat farmer learn to love one another and trust God with both the past and the future.
I've always found it interesting to read books about Christian mail-order brides, because it happens very rarely. Catharine trusted God to lead her to a man that would take care of her, and He did. However, Peter's mother was not so kind. She constantly was against Catharine, which wore down on her nerves. Their marriage was new, so it didn't have much foundation to keep them up. Despite her trials, Catharine stayed strong to keep on track. This book has a heart-felt story that will appeal to any romance lover.

I received this book free for review for a Revell blog tour. I was not required to give a positive review, simply an honest one.
