Steadfast Heart by Tracie Peterson
Despite her spoiled upbringing, twenty-year-old Lenore Fulcher isn't pretentious. She simply believes a marriage should be built on true love. Her father, however, thinks she's wasted enough time searching for the perfect husband. He wants to marry her off to one of his business partners--who is seventeen years her senior--an idea that is out of the question for Lenore.
Kolbein Booth, a young lawyer from Chicago, arrives in Seattle looking for his headstrong sister, who he believes may have answered an advertisement for mail-order brides. Sick with worry, he storms into the Madison Bridal School, demanding to see his sister, only to learn she isn't there. But Lenore Fulcher is, and something about her captures his attention.
Is this the man Lenore has been searching for? She may not have long to find out...
I always enjoy Tracie Peterson's books and anxiously looked forward to this one. But I struggled to get interested in it. The main characters, per the synopsis, are Kolbein and Lenore but the book seemed to be more about Abrianna. But other than that, I just could not get involved with these characters. I can't put my finger on what I didn't care for but it just didn't pull me in.
My copy of this book was generously provided by Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.
