Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Under the authors' skillful guidance, I quickly grew to love many characters in A Bride for Noah. Humor, always used with expertise, broke the tension at many a point and is one of the trademarks of Copeland/Smith stories—and part of why I enjoy this team and am drawn to their books. I would happily invest another day in the creative world of Lori Copeland and Virginia Smith."

Julie Scott

"These authors are quite the dynamic duo, and I never finish one of their books feeling disappointed."

—Patty LeBlanc, pattyleblanc.wordpress.com

"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."

—Susan Kroupa, susankroupa.com

"We would highly recommend reading this well-crafted book and we look forward to the next installment."

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.
