Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Prolific author Copeland (With This Ring, LJ 2/1/98) kicks off another historical Western series with this pleasing tale of mail-order brides set in 1872. When their pastor father dies suddenly, leaving little money, three sisters realize that they need to take drastic action to survive. Each answers a newspaper ad soliciting Christian brides. Faith goes to Texas, where her intended, a well-to-do rancher named Nicholas Shepherd, seems to be having second thoughts. While her wedding is repeatedly postponed, Faith meets a local widower and decides to teach his blind son Braille. In time, Nicholas begins to realize that he may have lost Faith to another man. Although this is not the freshest premise, Copeland endows his characters with enough liveliness to make the book a fun light read. Recommended, especially for Copeland's growing group of fans.

Very well written and enjoyed this book.
Betty Alexander
The plot is slow moving, the characters are stale, and the big reveals are predictable.
Cris
It is a christian book without being too "preachy".

Faith 19, and her two younger sisters have decided to become mail order brides in order to relieve their aunt of any more expense on their behalf. Faith's adventure has her answering an ad to become the bride of wealthy Nicholas Shepherd in his mid thirties. He resides in Deliverance, TX with his mother. Liza.
Faith's unusual arrival in Deliverance is only the beginning of some rather bizarre occurances which prevent the wedding from taking place several times. Instead, Faith tests the patience of Liza her future mother in law by preferring outside, tomboy activities to domestication. Faith cannot figure out what makes this man and his mother tick, since they seem to have plenty of money but refuse to spend it, and although they are rich and well known, they still do not seem very happy with life.
As Faith becomes acquainted with the townspeople and church folks, she is especially fond of little five year old Adam, who is blind. His father, Dan, is a young widow with two other children. Since Faith is not married yet, she feels free to help Dan out with the children. This act of kindness causes her great distress from Liza and distrust and jealousy from Nicholas.
Although the book introduces many different families, it centers on Faith's adventures as she seeks to establish her worth while wondering if her marriage is ever going to take place. The one single obstacle she cannot overcome is the selfish, moody, controlling mother of her fiance. Liza is a widow who now refuses to relinquish her hold on her only child, Nicholas.
Nicholas puts his work and his cattle ranch above anything else, and postpones the wedding once more to prevent leaving a young bride home alone while he is out on a cattle drive.

I have very little time to read and this book I read in 2 days! The way Lori Copeland wrote this book, you feel like you are standing right there in Deliverence, Texas looking at the whole scene. I felt captivated by the all of the characters. When they experienced joy or sorrow, I also felt it. While reading this book you will cry alot. Mostly because you are laughing so hard! "Faith" is a perfect title to this book. The main character, who is Faith, has the most innocent faith in God. Almost a child's faith. We all need to experience that. I have already recommended this book to friends and want everyone to know, this book is well worth your time to read it! You will walk away feeling refreshed and joyful! God Bless!

It is a hilarious story that had me rolling with laughter one minute and crying the next. Faith, being the first mail order bride in this series set in the 1800's, realized that God works everything out to the good for those who love Him.

After reading this book .... I had to wonder what book the other reviewers read.
I thought it was a really terrible book. Couldn't stand Nicholas and his evil mother -
whom we were supposed to excuse for her awful behavior because she was going through
her "change". Did anyone else want to strangle Nicholas?

I couldn't figure out why Faith didn't get on the next stage out of town -
after spending ONE night
in the presence of those two terrible people.

I have read Lori Copeland books before, but never again.

If you're religious, like happy endings and a light, easy romance with no surprises in store, you'll love this book. After a promising start the story flowed smoothly enough but I found it became increasingly annoying and predictable with the characters degenerating into unbelievable 'goodies'. To say all the characters lived happily-ever-after is an understatement! No imagination or originality here, the author has stuck with the tried and true romance formula which can become very tedious.

Format: Paperback
In the BRIDES OF THE WEST SERIES we learn that sisters Faith, Hope, & June have decided to become mail order brides. Faith is off to Texas to wed Nicholas Shepherd. When she gets there, she is met by a man of little words, and a mother-in-law that has nothing positive to say about Faith. When their wedding date is postponed on four different occasions, Faith begins to wonder if God brought her to Deliverance, Texas for reasons other than marriage. She soon gets attached to the children of a widower and has fancy ideas of opening a school for the blind. Nicholas is in a state of confusion. He doesn't like Faith's forward ways, and with his mom continually telling him why Faith is all wrong for him, he begins to wonder if his marriage is doomed before it even transpires.

I enjoyed FAITH, though at times, I thought the pace was slow. I like the character of Faith because she was an idealist and didn't let social graces get in the way of what she wanted to do. Nicholas was a little passive for me. I prefer a man who is a take charge kind of guy. But overall, the book was enjoyable and I will be reading HOPE next.

This book was not shockingly bad. The writing was passable and the content was inoffensive. It was also dreadfully boring. The plot is slow moving, the characters are stale, and the big reveals are predictable. This whole thing is a cliche and would not be a terrible read if you are looking for a new, but familiar PG romance. It can be enjoyed and I myself enjoyed some of it, but there is more romance in a kindergarten playground wedding and that is totally unforgivable when you bill a book as romance.
