Can Silas and Kate overcome their rocky start and experience healing—and possibly love? Discover the answer in Melissa Jagears' new book, A Bride at Last. Neither Kate nor Silas is prepared for the secrets and past hurts that have yet to come to light as they attempt to prove nine-year-old Anthony's paternity to the court. Can their wounded souls bind them together or will all that stands between them leave them lonely forever?
This is truly a heart-wrenching story in many ways. Silas' abandonment issues from early childhood and his trying desperately to drown it all in drinking, which drives his wife of less than a year away from him, resulting in even more loneliness... and Kate's abuse at the hands of her brother-in-law who had the same problem, after the death of her parents, with all the memories of that that make her marriage impossible... then the kid, who may be Silas' own, and all his troubles, and all the struggles to become his parent... everything is just so insane in this story, with a storm brewing around every corner.
But it does get better eventually, and it ends in beautiful resolution. You just have to read it to see how it all weaves together so intricately to bring lovely relief to such chaos and disharmony.
I also love the book cover and feel like it complements the story so well, especially when it's all said and done. They're adorable, and you can really see the way Silas cherishes Kate, with the cute boy down below. I heartily recommend this book, so get it now!
