Library Journal
09/15/2013
In 1851, headstrong Evie Lawrence jumps at the chance to head West with her elderly former employer to open a restaurant in a new town called Seattle. Along with several young women who hope to find husbands, Evie is eager to start a new life, only to find the "town" is a rough logging camp not yet suited for women or businesses. Worse, her employer's infuriating nephew, Noah Hughes, thinks she was foolish to come. But Evie is determined to succeed with God's guidance, and she might find happiness for herself along the way. VERDICT Inspired by the 1960s TV series Here Come the Brides, the coauthors of the "Amish of Apple Grove" series team again to launch a new series that combines historical figures associated with the founding of Seattle with fictional characters struggling with their faith. Fans of the authors and of historical romance will enjoy.

    This story was very engaging and we didn't want to put it down. We really enjoyed the
    twists and the turns of finding out about a past relationship of our heroin and how it was
    going to affect the relationship with the new man in her life. We loved the humor that
    came out of the setting with a whole bunch of rugged lumberjacks and the woman with
    some refinement learning to work together and support each other. Another humorous
    storyline was that of a shrewd city businessman who was trying to use big city business
    techniques out in the wild frontier. The results of his business endeavors, often proved
    ill-advised in such remote settings. We would highly recommend reading this wellcrafted
    book and we look forward to the next installment. Happy reading! Steve and
    Tracy

    A nice fun book  --  

    It's 1851 and Evie Lawrence is working for Miles and Letitia Coffinger and as Miles is reading a letter from his nephew, Noah Hughes, to his wife, Evie overhears the suggestion to bring a load of women to Oregon Territory. Evie is engaged to James but one evening she finally sees the light and a different plan starts forming in her mind. She confronts Mr Coffinger first to see if he'd be willing to be a partner in a new restaurant in the Oregon Territory then she breaks off the engagement with James and soon finds herself, along with Miles and three other ladies on her way Oregon.




    The plan doesn't go as well as she planned, Miles didn't have the money she thought he did and now she finds herself owing a bank money and the owners of the lumber company are very unhappy when women show up. The women didn't know just how rough the wilderness would be and find themselves having to work harder than was bargained for, oh, and there are Indians too!




    I found this a peaceful smooth and fun book to read, I found myself chuckling in a few spots and just about had to brush away a couple of tears. Anytime I do that when reading I consider it a good story. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, "Rainy Day Dreams", to come out in April.

    The beginning Seattle. An Adventure in logging, love and more.

    The beginning Seattle. An Adventure in logging, love and more.
    Evie feels she can leave Tennessee and start over. She travels with an employee who she has a partnership with to start a restaurant. Two other ladies are with them too. When she cannot get help from the loggers, it doesn't stop her from getting ladies to help her clear off lady for a restaurant. Love that part a lot.
    Turns out land belonged to Noah so she forms a partnership with him too. Noah can hardly believe his Uncle brought women to logging site. He is kept busy trying to keep the women out of the men's way so they will work. But turns out he finally has to allow women near men to get the work done on time.
    Just as Evie and Noah are about to start a relationship someone from her past shows up. It turns everything upside down. But love wins out eventually.
    I love how the Indians and white men worked together because often the Indians are portrayed in a poor light. I have Indian blood and was taught to be proud of it.
    Relationships have hard moments of truth sharing before marriage in many cases. Yet not all.
    Ethel and Cookee show how opposites can attract and find the strength in each other. I loved their lives.
    All the characters you will warm to and feel like you are there watching it all.
    Noah had been stung by a woman partner in the past so found it hard to believe Evie when she shared the truth.
    A beautiful story of the beginning of a town.

    Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith in their new book, ¿A Bride For

    Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith in their new book, “A Bride For Noah” Book One in the Seattle Brides series published by Harvest House Publishers takes us into the life of Evie Lawrence.




    From the Back Cover:   In the shadow of the mountain




    It’s 1851, and Evie Lawrence is penniless and desperate for an adventure. When her employer announces his plan to move west and make his fortune, Evie jumps at the chance to start a new life. She says goodbye to the only home she’s ever known and sets out for the rugged Northwest.  She’ll build a restaurant in one of the new settlements, she decides.




    A restaurant in the wilderness?  Noah Hughes, a handsome young lumberjack, can hardly believe his ears.  Evie has no idea what she is getting into.  The last thing his logging camp needs is a woman!  And the last thing he’s looking for is a bride…so why can’t he get Evie out of his mind?




    In this first book of the Seattle Brides series, two people learn what it means to move beyond their expectations and embrace the very best God has for them.




    I love history and the authors have skillfully blended the founding of Seattle, Washington into this first book in this new series.  Evie is not coming out as a mail-order bride, she is coming out as a business person looking to start a new life out West.  I admire her.  Evie is a strong minded woman who knows what she wants and clashes with whomever seems to get in her way.  Noah is her male equivalent and the two seem to be adversaries all the time, yet Noah is beginning to melt to her.  Both Evie and Noah are wounded individuals in romance and it is going to take God to heal them before they can accept the present, embrace each other and embrace the future.  I enjoyed the characters in this book, the good guys are worth cheering for and the bad guys are, well, bad.   I enjoyed this book a lot and am looking forward to the next book in this series from this talented duo.




    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book for free from Harvest House Publishers for this review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

    A sparkling romance reminiscent of Seven Brides for Seven Brothe

    A sparkling romance reminiscent of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Here Come the Brides, Virginia Smith and Lori Copeland’s A Bride for Noah combines a classic love story with an engaging historical setting. 

    Unhappy with her fiancé and suspecting his motives for proposing were purely financial, Evie Lawrence risks everything to leave Chattanooga and travel across the country to a rough, remote logging settlement in Northwestern Washington. With the help of her eccentric employer, Miles, who becomes her business partner and financier, Evie plans to start a restaurant. Loggers need to eat, right? And she knows how to cook. But then she meets Noah, Miles’s handsome nephew. Second in command of the camp, Noah regards Evie and her crew as an interruption to the work his men need to accomplish, and he seems to oppose Evie’s efforts at every turn. That’s bad enough. What’s worse is the almost irresistible attraction Evie feels towards Noah. Throw in a local tribe of Duwamish Indians, whose Chief Si’ahl ends up being the namesake for the new settlement, as well as a host of secrets, misunderstandings, and miscalculations, and the mix turns out to be a delightful read, as tasty as any of the connoctions that Evie might have served in her restaurant.

    Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith have started a series together and book one in their Seattle Brides series is A Bride for Noah. This is an excellent start to the series. Evie is desperate to start a new life and she decides to head out for Seattle with her employer; she is ready for adventure, and decides to start a restaurant. However, not everyone is as accepting of her plans and Evie discovers that there are more plans than just the ones that she has made, plans that are the very best for her as they are God’s plans. 

    A Bride for Noah is a must-read for historical fiction fans. These two authors make a great writing team as the story is fun to read and the time period, setting, and characters are brought to life. I fell in love with both Noah and Evie and enjoyed seeing their friendship and relationship develop and grow. It was also so enjoyable to be transported back in time and imagine living like Evie, a woman trying to make it on her own in an undeveloped area. Noah and Evie are both on different paths for their lives, at least that is what they think until they truly accept the plans and paths that God has for each of them. A Bride for Noah is an enjoyable story filled with great lessons for each and every reader.
