My summary: After returning Glowing Sun to her people, Wade finds he is in love with her and can not bring him self to leave. So he sets up camp near the Flathead tribe. Little does he know that tragedy will bring Glowing Sun (Abby) and Wade back together.
My say: As you all know, I am a character fanatic and my book love is directly tied to my ability to connect or sympathize for the main characters. When I can not connect with the characters the book ultimately falls flat for me. That is exactly what happened with the Wildflower Bride. Despite my love and admiration for books 1 and 2 in the Montana Marriages series (Montana Rose and The Husband Tree), this one did not win me over. Abby drove me crazy.
However, I did love the way Mary Connealy brought back all the characters from books 1 and 2 (fans of Montana Rose are in for a treat) and Wade. Wade is a beautiful flawed complex character that is introduced in book one, evolves in book 2, and comes full circle in book 3. Mary continuously surprised and impressed me with Wade. I still can not believe she was able to take a character I detested and turn him in to someone I rooted for. His journey with God is beautiful and a testament to Mary Connealy's writing.
My star rating: 3 out of 5 stars
My recommendation: If you like Christian Fiction, give the Wildflower Bride a try. If you are considering trying Mary Connealy, try The Husband Tree.
My final say: If you've read the Wildflower Bride, I'm curious what did you think of Wade?
