Wildflower Bride by Mary Connealy link for Wildflower Bride
Book Description: Welcome to the wilds of Montana, where humor, romance, and suspenseride the range. Glowing Sun, a white woman raised by the Flathead tribe, has vague memories of her former life, including a name—Abby Lind. When she’s forced to sever all links with her adopted family, Abby wonders if she’ll ever find a home again. Tenderhearted Wade Sawyer, responsible for Abby’s survival during the village massacre, convinces the knife-wielding woman to return with him to the Sawyer Ranch, never realizing danger lurks behind every corner. Can they survive long enough to fall in love?

My Review: Wade Sawyer is a good and heroic character in this western story. He is a man of faith who has a favorite verse, Psalm 27:1, and he keeps it in his heart. Often he would run just the words in his mind “Who shall I fear?” as a reminder to be brave.

This wasn’t my favorite book of the Montana Marriages series. While I liked the character of Wade, he was about the only person that I cared about. There were just too many unpleasant people in this book. Of course I expected the “bad guys” to be – well – bad, but even some of the main characters were disagreeable as if that demonstrated a show of strength. Abby Lind was a very rude person considering she was a woman of faith. Wade’s father was a cantankerous old man, although his attitude was a good part of the storyline and was logical. I found one of the scenes with Belle and Silas uncomfortable when they were having a borderline violent physical confrontation one minute and kissing the next.

This is still a book I would recommend if you enjoy Christian romance set in the old west. Her descriptions of the area and events are good, and the story flows very well.
