The Bride Wore.....

I have a facebook page and one of my likes is the Goodwill Librarian, who daily posts pictures concerned with books and reading. Today's picture fits the book I am reviewing today that I have to post it:

The Bride Wore Blue by Mona Hodgson is a book of grace in its purest form. Vivian is the youngest Sinclair sister and she's the sister with a "past." Like so many of us, she cannot let go of her past to see her future. She comes to Cripple Creek, Colorado, to join her sisters as her father wished for her. She meets Carter Alwyn because she encountered some bandits on the train ride to Cripple Creek and she needed to describe them for the authorities.

The theme throughout the book is Vivian's feelings of unworthiness to have the lives her sisters have. Mona's handling of Vivian's feelings teaches us to lean on the facts of God's love as explained through scripture instead of our feelings.

I adore when an author can teach a spiritual truth while being entertaining, and Mona does this very well. The Bride Wore Blue is not only a fun read, it's engaging and instructive. Well done, Mona.
