marriage requires trust, respect, and a deep abiding commitment p. 231;
there have been times I wanted to give up, turn my back on God, because following in His footsteps was so very hard. there were times when I felt as if He had deserted me, even betrayed me to my enemies. and I know there will be times like that again. each day I have to start anew, and hope my love for God will carry me through p. 231. (and look to God's promises that he will always be with me, never desert me - my comments)

Recommends it for: Married Christian women, as there are some mature topics in this series
This book is definitely for married women only or older ladies. I would not recommend this to unmarried young women because there are mature topics in this series. In spite of that I liked this book. It is a Christian book and even Christians have problems they have to deal with.

In this book the son of the owner of the Culdee Creek Ranch, running away from home, and looking for his family in Scotland. What he finds in Scotland is love. He brings his new wife home to America. He met his wife and

This was fairly well done. I do believe that books in series should still stand on their own. This was the third book in the series and I'm not sure if the confusion at the beginning (which was finally resolved about a third of the way through the book) was because I hadn't read the first two books. Once I really got into the book, and understood some of the past, it was a fairly enjoyable read.

Series book 3

All of these books keep your interest and have delightful story lines. The interaction of the characters and their faith, Grace and belief of God and his commandments are refreshing and delightful. The fact that the characters have fears and trust issues make them believable and relatable. I would recommend the whole series.

Not my best in the series but I did gain a lot from the whole marriage scene. It taught me what to expect and pray for. However, I like the first book more, the character Abby intrigued me so much more and even Hannah than this character Claire. She seemed a little immature, well she just turned adult legally but still glad a lot of growing up, not the least was her husband, Evan.. I was not so much in love with that character too from the unset. Ian on the other hand was too insensitive and sel ...more

i loved this story because it was more focussed on the whol concept of maintainance of a marriage. and it didnt take long for the hro and heroine to hook up. ;)
basically all their marital issues streamed from one source...keeping secrets.
and by the end of the book all the beans are spilled so their marriage kinda falls apart.
she runs away(typical) and he runs after her(so cliche!) and they make up.
end of story.
atleast they didnt go through a long line of

Sadly, I have to say that I'm disappointed. I really enjoyed the first two books in this series --- Daughter of Joy & Woman of Grace --- and (as well as I can remember) every other book I've read by Kathleen Morgan. This book, however, just could not keep my attention and interest. I hate to not finish a book, but I ended up "speed-reading" through most of it just so I could get the general idea of the story and finish it.
I'm reluctant to even try book four...

Claire Sutherland swore she'd never trust a man with her heart or her future. But from the first moment she meets Evan McKay, she feels strangely drawn to this man and the close ranch community he describes to her. After a whirlwind courtship, Evan and Claire journey to Colorado to begin a new life together as husband and wife. Though nervous about leaving the familiar Scottish highlands, Claire looks forward to being part of a real family for the first time. But when confronted with her husband ...more

Romantic Christian Fiction

Lady of Light

This book keep my interest throughout the whole book. I love how it tell that Evan travels to figure out his trouble and learns along the way. I really love it that it took him back to where his family had kin. It really tell me that Evan started to understand and grow up. Though he lost his first love it really was not real love that he was thinking of.

Claire learn to trust and not judge. She raises her little brother Ian. She makes some decision to marry and move with Evan back to his farm. Sh

I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed in the third installment of the Brides of Culdee Creek series. The next generation characters of Claire, Evan, and Ian seemed a bit over the top at times and never felt connected to them. I did like the idea of combining the locations of Scotland and Colorado in the story. Am looking forward to reading the last story in this series.

I think I have enjoyed reading this book more than the other two. It could have been the fact it was set in Ireland and in Colorado. It had so much tension and drams and just kept me reading. The stories in this series are wonderful. There are a few grammar errors but for me is does not detract from the story. I can recommend this book to the massess.

Claire and Evan had a wonderful courtship time in Ireland and they married not long after meeting but they seemed to suit one another and tho their lives took a lot of work, the story and how it unfolds is a good one. I am ready for the next story of Culdee Cree Brides....

This book was a toss up for me. Beginning the story in a different country and culture kind of through me back. I enjoyed the transition into America and the forbidden romance with Ian and Beth, which added to the story line rather than making it one dementional.

This is a quick, easy read. It's a historical romance with a touch of inspirational fiction. This is the third in this series. I really liked the first two better, but this one was okay also. I plan to read the fourth in the series soon.

An easy read. The story was realistic of living in those times. What it would have been like to move from Scotland to the united states.
