Review: Steadfast Heart by:Tracie Peterson

 Steadfast Heart (Brides of Seattle, #1)
About the Book:
Lenore Fulcher isn't pretentious despite her spoiled upbringing. Her deepest desire at the age of twenty is to find true love. However, her father believes she's wasted enough time searching for a suitable husband, and he wants to marry her off to one of his business partners--thirty-seven-year-old James Rybus. But the idea of marriage to a man so much older is out of the question for Lenore.

Kolbein Booth, a lawyer from Chicago, arrives in Seattle looking for his headstrong sister who he believes may have answered an advertisement for mail-order brides. Sick with worry, he storms the Madison Bridal School, demanding to see his sister, only to learn she isn't there. But Lenore Fulcher is, and something about her captures his attention.

Is this the man Lenore has been searching for? She may not have long to find out..

My Review:
 Twenty-year old, Lenore Fulcher was called to her fathers office expecting the worst. But all he wished to discuss with her is the subject of courting a man almost twice her age. She doesn't agree with it at all. It's not that she has a problem against older people, it's just that she wants to get married to the love of her life not someone her father picks out for her. And you would think that discussing all of this with her best friend, Abrianna, would clear Lenore's mind about this new found ordeal---but think again.

 Abrianna ia more concerned with the affairs of the world and how it all coincides with the Bible, which is important as well, but Lenore feels that her news is more than a little pressing at the moment. Lenore feels she is running out of time and could really use some advice. What is she going to do about all of this?

 Kolbein Booth, a young lawyer from Chicago is looking for his little sister. After arriving at the Madison Bridal School, all he can seem to find are women that are unwilling to help and a girl that he can't seem to get off of his mind. With the help of Lenore and her friend Abrianna, he may get a lead on his sister's where abouts. Soon Kolbein, will get much more than he originally anticipated!

 Tracie Peterson is a really talented author and it's actually a privilege to review any of her books. Steadfast Heart, is such a sweet love story that will certainly warm your heart!
