Overview

Responding to an Advertisement, She Crossed an Ocean to Meet a Total Stranger and Became a Mail-Order Bride...Kathleen O'Malley stood on the deck of the Barreth Lily and watched the land she'd called home for more than a dozen years slip from her view. She had thought she would be glad to see the last of it, but she was not. Emotions in turmoil, her whole being yearned to slip from the ship and return to what she knew. Even though Kathleen had not been happy with her situation, it was all she had ever known. As the shoreline faded into the morning mist, her only certainty was that she was bound for America to marry a man whose name she did not even know and whose face she had never seen.On the other side of the Atlantic, Donnigan Harrison anxiously awaits Kathleen's arrival on a prairie farm far from her port of arrival in Boston. He has known the wonder of a dream fulfilled--a snug frame cabin, the sturdy log barn and outbuildings, a fine herd of livestock, and crops in the field that made his eyes sparkle. Yet Donnigan felt a loneliness on the western frontier that pierced his very soul. With so limited opportunities for finding a wife, the notion of ordering a wife that once seemed unthinkable had come to make some sense. Now that the time has come, Donnigan feels like a small boy waiting for Christmas.But Donnigan's anticipation is overshadowed with terrifying uncertainties--What have I done?

A Bride for Donnigan is one of the very best books Oke has written. I have read it twice and will probably read it again. Touching, warm, and any other good adjective you want to add. I have recommended this book to my reading friends, and everyone of them have put 5 stars on it for it is that good. Have any doubts . . . Just go for it, you will enjoy every page.

I was really intrigued in the beginning because I love the subject of mail order brides. Last half I could have done without or at least could have been condensed. Just seemed to go on & on.

Like many other reviewers I read this book in a day. I just couldn't put it down. This and "Heartbof the Wilderness" are my favourite books by Janette Oke. This is a must-read for any young christian looking for a captivating book.

It was good until the last 30 pages or so.  It was going along fine then they kept jumping forward so fast and the story started getting boring. I've read a lot of Janette Oke books but this one wasn't my favorite.

Kathleen reminds me of Cinderella. She has a mean stepmother and has to work hard. Then she goes to America and meets a man who is good and honest and kind (the prince) She has problems and is frustrated at times but her life is a good one.
