Synopsis

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.

Deeply Devoted by Maggie Brendan
March 5th, 2014
This is a nice story but badly written. The sequences were disjointed and the language was stilted and at times almost awkward. The theology was also weak and for the most part not well integrated with the storyline. I enjoyed the setting and appreciate the research that went into the context, but it was not enough to redeem this book.
