This was the most heart squeezing/grabbing/wrenching/thrilling love story I've ever read. The most handsome, ideal, romantic, loving (you add all the adjectives you want in a man) wants to marry Adair and to top it off he's a billionaire. There's one catch though that is so bizarre that you will be hooked on this story at once. This is a marvelous allegory about . . . I don't want to spoil it. Best book I've read and it's the first in a trilogy.

When Adair receives a third-party marriage proposal from billionaire philanthropist Fletcher Streiker, she's offered a way out of a miserable paycheck-to-paycheck existence at a job she's not even good at, and a way to pursue her love of ballet. The catch is, she'll have to agree to marry him before she can actually meet him. And while Mr. Streiker seems to know all about her, she'll have to make her decision aided only by a folder full of letters and newsclippings that reveal his character and ...more

I read Streiker's Bride during my lunch hour whenever I could over several weeks. Those lunches were the highlight of my day. I found the story of Adair and the unusual courtship of her by the billionaire Fletcher to be engaging, suspenseful and fun. It reads in some ways like a detective mystery, where clues are revealed and the reader is always hoping to find out what will come next. Robin Hardy has a wonderful writing style and is a terrific storyteller. I remain struck at the different level ...more

I re-read this series every few years or so, it's that good...I mean GREAT! Streiker's Bride never fails to refresh my love for Jesus. It's an amazing contemporary allegory that brings to life just how much Jesus loves us. Do yourself a favor and read it. I have no doubt you'll be glad you did.

"Streiker's Bride" was a unique, fun, and intriguing romance. I quickly became immersed in this fast-paced story. The characters were engaging and complex, and I cared what happened to them. The characters dealt with realistic struggles, and the plot wasn't predictable.

The novel is a bit like "The Chronicles of Narnia" in that there's a deeper layer or meaning to the story. There's no religious talk since the novel isn't overtly Christian. A non-Christian could read the novel and assume it's a c

The fashions are quite dated (literally laughably so!), but the STORY is absolutely amazing! I truly wish it would be republished so a new generation could read its message.

Great story and beautiful representation of Christ's love for us. The writing was ... eh ... not great but very ok. The story was angsty for me as I identified so closely to Adair, and I wanted so much what she wanted. I would recommend it especially to those who don't want a lot of "religion" in their story.

I read this book in the 90's I imagine. It is still just as good, if not better. It is an incredible adventure and love story between a woman who is living paycheck to paycheck and suddenly finds herself being sought by a man of great power, wealth, integrity, and love.

The Streiker Saga Trilogy is the first set of fiction books that I ever added to my personal library (we have an awesome library here) and the first trilogy that I have ever read more than once. I have to say that they are my favorite books of all time.

This is one of my favorite Romance Novels. It leaves you thinking about why things were done the way they were. When I want to escape I pick up this book.

Loved this allegory re. choosing Christ without ever seeing Him. Set in modern day Dallas. Different take but I loved it!

This was a good story, but my parents were convinced that it was a romance novel. (which it isn't)
