Ruth Ann Nordin is brave. There aren't many Christian authors who are willing to write about marital sex with such candor and boldness -- unless it's nonfiction. And even then...hmm? With that in mind, I can see how her books would be difficult for some to read. But I also think her writing addresses a lot of the sexual issues pertaining to married women that maybe we shouldn't be so shy about. Whatever your feelings on the matter, Ruth Ann definitely gives the reader something to think about; and, apart from this topic -- which is a small portion of the book -- a wonderful story is told.

I loved the realness of the characters. The fact that Neil had a past, and was a changed man, caused me to relate heavily. I also adored Sara's transformation from a woman who valued image to one who valued heart, and how she discovered her own worth in God's eyes as this change occurred. Beautiful!

My absolute favorite part of the book though, was a somewhat risque scene with a prostitute. No, not for that reason! I don't want to give too much away, other than to say that Neil suddenly sees this woman as someone's daughter, and it changes his perception of her from being an object, to being a person. This can apply to so many people in various walks of life, and I think the author did a superb job of balancing grit with message here.

So, my hat's off to Ruth Ann. I liked this book! It's definitely an adult read, and not for every adult. If you decide to give it shot, your eyes should be wide open that there is explicit sexual description (non-erotica though) within its pages; however, it does NOT placate, or promote any behavior that is contrary to Christian values. And the description given goes along with the theme of Sara's discovery of what's right and wrong in the eyes of man vs God's eyes.

Definitely a Grace-Inspired story.

I read this all in one day. You can not put it down. I know that alot of people would not like the Description of Maried life. But it fits the story. The characters are very true to life and fit the time that the book takes place. I would recommend this story to adults and only adults.

Yet Another Beautiful Story that takes an unlikeable character from "Eye of the Beholder" and shows how love has transformed a cad into a hero. Dave and Mary Larson are also brought back and play an important part in this story. "His Redeeming Bride" will have you rooting outloud for the transformed Neil Craftsman, his daughter Emily and for Sarah Donner who has never known sincere love. I can't seem to get enough of Ruth Ann Nordin's works. She writes so simply and so beautifully that I'm hooked from her very first paragraph. Her characters are well developed and her writing skills make you feel what they feel. You can't help wanting to know what will happen to them. I've lost count of how many of her books I've read, but am so glad that there are more waiting and upcoming! :)

SPOILERS*****The characters of Neil and Sarah are appealing throughout parts of the book, especially Neil who comes across as very sweet. However, there are too many inconsistencies and plot twists to ignore in this, the fourth Nordin novel I have read.
Sarah is supposed to be a shy, conservative young woman brainwashed by her church and late husband into believing that bright clothes are sexually suggestive and nice girls wouldn't be caught dead with a man like Neil Craftsman. Neil, a sweet, gentle father with a major bad boy reputation to live down, is the epitome of what Sarah fears most, sin in trousers. Why, then, when they have JUST met, and she has JUST found out that Neil and his ex-wife had separate bedrooms, would she ask, "Cassie's bedroom? Didn't you sleep in the same room?" NO well bred woman, especially a well bred woman of Sarah's nature, would have brought up sleeping arrangements in that era. Also, the expression "to punch someone out" is a modern expression and does not belong in a 19th century novel. Later I had to wonder about the tendency the author has to forget she mentions thing; Sarah tells her friend something, then when her friend makes reference to it Sarah replies, "How did you know that, I didn't tell you." Well, duh, of course she did a few chapters ago! And Beatrice's 360 degree turn? Was I the only one who had whiplash from the sudden switch? Then there is the ending. I'm sorry, but the whole way the end played out was farcical. There were the disguises that fooled everyone, and the weird way Sarah went about her whole role. Why wouldn't Sarah let Neil in on the plot rather than make the man suffer so?

Book 8: His Redeeming Bride
Neil Craftman's story is my favorite. He had married Cassie seven years ago after turning Mary away at the train station. Cassie was beautiful but ugly inside. Neil saw his error in not choosing Mary. Cassie wanted a divorce so she could marry a rich man but she left Emily, their little girl with Neil. She had never had the motherly instincts. Neil was known around town for visiting the saloons and soiled doves. The "holy" people stayed clear of him. Sarah Donner is in an unhappy marriage. Her husband is bringing her to his mothers to have her baby. On the way they are attacked and he is killed by the robbers. The only one to take her in and help her is Neil Craftman. As a good Christian who belonged to a church that preached from the pulpit to avoid Neil and used him as an example for sin, she was frightened to be in his home. This story shows Neil's kind heart and how he changed. It shows how often people don't allow others to change but judge them for what they use to be and definitely shows how Christians should NOT treat others. *Sexual situations within marriage.
