A Bride Most Begrudging

Christian Romance

"Your wit is as fat and lazy as your belly."



When Lady Constance Morrow slips onto the transport ship to say good bye to her uncle, she has no clue that she is about to be kidnapped and taken to America as a tobacco bride!  Andrew O'Conner has no desire for a wife, let alone a red-headed spit-fire, but that's apparently what he's found himself stuck with.  Constance soon finds out that life on a Virginian tobacco farm is very different from that of the daughter of an English Lord.  Life in the colonies is hard work with many dangers - not the least of which is the danger her new husband poses on her heart.

My Opinion: I thought that this was a fascinating read.  I have never seen another book written from this time period in the colonies like this.  Though the author may have done a great job with research, I often felt as I was reading it that the historical background and culture was off.  Just little things that were said or were allowed that didn't feel like it meshed with the time-period.  Otherwise, I thought this was a great book.  The characters are appealing and you can understand them easily.  I felt drawn to them and was very emotionally involved by the end.  I did feel that they quoted scripture a little too much for fluid conversation.  But the Christian theme is the best I've encountered so far (granted I haven't read that many Christian romances so take that as you will).  All in all, good book with good characters.
