Giving up on this one for now... I'm 75 pages into it and it hasn't captured my interest yet.
Very preachy, which I guess is to be expected since the main character is a protestant minister.

A Bride of Honor is the eighth single title Ruth Axtell Morren has written for the Steeple Hill line. Her blend of facts and story is seamless, creating a read that entertains and educates.
I especially like how Morren isn’t afraid to tackle issues that are every bit as relevant in today’s world as in the past. Her main character, Damian Hathaway, is physically limited with a wooden leg. His situation is dealt with in a realistic manner, including all the emotions and hardships such a challenge

I just finished Bride of Honor and I was sorry to see it end. As usual Ruth Morren keeps me turning those pages anxiously waiting to see what will happen next. The first day I started reading this story I got almost halfway through when it was time to go to bed. I woke up at 4:15 a.m. And couldn't stop thinking about the book. I had no choice but to get up and read for a while to satisfy my curiosity. I never did get back to sleep.

Ruth is one of my top 10 favorite authors. Her stories are all so

I enjoyed this entry by Morren. I appreciate that even though she writes inspirational romances, she does not shy away from realistic life problems for her characters. The main characters, Damien and Lindsey, both had obvious faults. Lindsey's seemed to be more owed to her youth for she fails to see how her unfounded claim against Damien will full impact everyone, including herself. At times I did grow frustrated with Damien for resisting his feelings for Lindsey quite so much, even after their ...more

Great novel.At first I was skeptical because I didn't want to read about a reverend's love affair, but I was very wrong.This novel has many Christian morals that I fully believe and practice and so I related to this book. Beautiful story, even though I was dissapointed with Lindsay's character for a moment, but as the book progressed everything came together nicely, humbly. I'm looking forward to read more by this author.

Okay, that was way too romance for me! I like adventure, mystery, and comedic romances not books were the characters are constantly thinking of each other and it is love at first sight..lick. For a romance in was well done though.

Just another forbidden love that gets worked out... Not the best book ever though I was glad it had more Christian themes than most romance.
