Deeply Devoted - A Review
Catharine Olsen leaves Holland as a mail-order bride with her two sisters in tow. When they arrive in Wyoming, Catharine and her groom, Peter Andersen, immediately marry and begin their life together. Catharine's keeping some secrets from her new husband about her past. Peter's mother is hurt that her son had the nerve to marry someone without her permission, so she seeks to find out all she can about her son's bride's background. Peter finds himself falling for Catharine yet torn between his wife and his mother. When the truth of Catharine's past comes to light, will Peter be able to forgive Catharine and will Catharine find the love she longs for?
This is the first book in the Blue Willow Brides series. I enjoyed reading it. Trust is an important theme in the book and both Catharine and Peter have to learn to trust not only each other but also God. A tender love story, fans of Janette Oke will be sure to pick up this book. I look forward to reading others in the series because I want to see if my questions are answered.
My thoughts and opinions are my own.
