This novel made me happy for so many reasons:
The characters are memorable and their steadfast faith in God is inspiring.
The sense of setting was lovely: I felt as though I could see the beautiful Wild West land all around me.
The plot moves forward at a swift pace, but doesn't feel rushed.
There are horses! I love horses.
The blossoming romance between the two main characters is so sweet, tender, and believable. This is a perfect read for those who enjoy a clean and wholesome romance.
Now all I want to know is when will the next book in this series be published?
Amy Watts, our heroine was orphaned at a young age. She is a strong, feisty woman who does not want to depend on a husband. She will find a way to take care of herself, she has a plan. Sometimes, though, plans change.
I love the way Adam and Amy use their faith and trust in God in their everyday lives and to form the bonds of friendship.
There is something for everyone in this book, suspense, fun, romance and a multitude of other things. The side characters are very well written and provide added depth to the story. I particularly have a fondness for George. I felt as if I was in Green Hill Creek, CA, I could see the town, the view from Amy's window and could almost smell the livery. I found myself on the edge of my seat a few times. I also found myself laughing and had the occasional tear slip out of my eyes.
I read a lot of mail order bride stories. No One's Bride is easily one of the best I've ever read.
All that Amy went through touched my heart deeply. I might not have lived in an Orphanage but I know what its like to have a man taunt you and want to take advantage of you.
Adam was such an awesome man, loving Amy even though she said she couldn't marry him. He showed her nothing but love and kindness. While hoping she would change her mind.
I loved that he relied on the Scriptures and on our Creator. Also that he prayed with and for Amy too. That said a lot for his character.
You must get this book! You need to find out everything that happens in this story. It's funny, sad, makes you mad and makes you rejoice.
I highly recommend this wonderful book.
Upon arriving, her plan is sidetracked and she plans to remain in town long enough to repay Adam. He is disappointed that she has no intentions of marrying him, but he shows her great kindness and compassion, allowing her to even stay in a room in his home. In this small town, Amy begins to see the kindness and love like she has never known or experienced in her life.
This was a simple but beautiful story. There is a lot of twists and surprising events in the story. It allows you to see the good and bad in people but to also see God's love and guidance in life. A new author for me but I look forward to reading other books by her.
Amy was written as a strong character. She has a problem and she solves it, but sometimes the Holy Spirit impresses upon her heart that maybe her actions are not the right choice. As is the case with tricking Adam into paying for her train ticket when she has no intention of marrying him. To her credit, she tries to make amends to Adam.
Adam seems to be a meek or timid man where females are concerned. He is beloved by all who know him in the town of Green Hill Creek, but when it comes to Amy he is not quite sure what to do to convince her to stay.
The villian of the story, Amy's former employer, is crafted very well. I can picture him perfectly.
As I said in my opening statement, the setting is beautifully described. I can picture the small 1870's town and it's inhabitants.
I loved watching Amy and Adam put their faith into practice. They tried not to act impulsively and to seek the Lords guidance first.
If you like Historical Christian Fiction, this one is a must read. I thouroughly enjoyed reading it. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

The story has great pace, a nagging wish for an outcome we all desire, yet enough little hurdles to overcome to make it a page-turner.
I’ll be reading more books by Nerys Leigh.
Adam is lonely and prays to God that he will find a wife who will love him. He sends for one and she faints before going to the church. He takes her home to rest, but what will happened he finds out she doesn’t want to marry him.
Fantastic story! I enjoyed reading this book!
No adult content. No swearing. Truthfully a relationship with God throughout this book.
