Book review: Love Everlasting by Tracie Peterson
In the third Brides of Seattle book, Abrianna Cunningham and Wade Ackerman have already declared their love for each other. Yet Abrianna has doubts about her adequacy to be a wife, in spite of having been raised in the Madison Bridal School by her aunts.
The Seattle Fire of 1889 has changed much in the city as the residents rebuild. As a businessman, Priam Welby is poised to take advantage of the changes. He is not prepared for Abrianna’s dissolution of their forced relationship, however, and determines to marry her, regardless of her lack of affection for him, and using whatever means necessary to secure the union.
I loved revisiting the endearing characters I had met in the previous book. Each one was essential to the story at one point or another. I did lose patience with Abrianna’s indecision, but as the book progressed, the pace and excitement increased until the fantastic conclusion of the story.
Anyone who has read the previous book in the series, Refining Fire, will definitely want to read this. Romance and historical fiction fans will want to pick this up, as well.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Bethany House, in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.
