Pleasurable, easy readユーザー レビュー - Christianbook.com
Review: A delightful read. I found this book very engaging, entertaining, and easy to read. The author has given us characters that we can relate to and cheer on in their quest to find the right answers for their situation and then follow through with doing the right thing while seeking God's ultimate direction. The author's descriptions easily allowed me to visualize the story and I found myself smiling quite often. "A Bride's Dilemma" is well suited for middle school and older readers. DISCLOSURE: A copy of this book was given to the library by a friend. Opinions expressed are solely those of the reviewer.

Travis Logan wanted nothing more than to be left alone to live his own life, but God has a way of changing things up. Like taking care of a dying man and having him bequeath his land to him and offered him heaven. Heaven Wharton had been left by her Pa to wait for him while he went to Chicago. She is in charge of the farm and all the animals, and her little sister Angel, who is blind. Heaven and Angel had lived in Nashville and were not acquainted with any of the daily chores of life. Not cooking, not housekeeping, not tending animals, or any other the other things that needed doing on a daily basis. When Travis and Heaven meet it is anything but a Holy union, at first anyway. They both go through many personal trials, both growing and learning at the same time. They are also both growing in their faith, Travis not starting out with much. Travis and Heaven both learn what it is to have a community love on them. My favorite quote from the book is “She giggled and then broke into a hearty laugh, grabbing her stomach, which surprised him. She was so petite, he’d have thought she’d have a dainty behind-the-hand giggle. At that moment, he knew…..”. The discussion questions at the end of the book make you stop and think, did I read that section, maybe I need to go back and read it again. The story made me laugh with the girls, and sigh when Travis said his part. I would recommend this book to all Young Adults and Adults, it is a fun, engaging story that will hold your attention to the end.
