Title: WILDFLOWER BRIDE
Author: Mary Connealy
Publisher: Barbour Books
Genre: Inspirational/historical romance
Wade Sawyer is a Christian now, and trying to live his life as pleasing to God, not his money and land hungry father. Now Wade had found a woman he can love, blonde, blue-eyed Glowing Sun, a girl who was raised by the Indians and now believes she is one. A girl who doesn’t understand a word of English.
Glowing Sun was raised by the Flathead Indians and is one of only a few left when men slaughter her village. When the few remaining blame her for the attack, she has no choice but to leave. Glowing Sun used to be Abby Lind in the white world, but Glowing Sun has no memory of that life. When her life as Glowing Sun ends, where does she belong?
Wade loves her, but how can he win her heart when she pulls a knife at everything that moves? And will Wade be able to reconcile with his father before it’s too late?
I met Wade in Ms. Connealy’s first book in this series, Montana Rose, but he was a bad guy in that book. I enjoyed getting to know him better in The Husband Tree, and was looking forward to reading his story. WILDFLOWER BRIDE is the third book in the Montana Marriages series, but it easily stands alone.
I didn’t really care for Glowing Sun as much as I would have liked to, and the romance in this book was kind of added as an afterthought, at least it read like it, but otherwise, I enjoyed the story, and laughed out loud in a few places.
