About the Book
Abandoned by his mail-order bride, Silas Jonesey has fought an uphill battle to recover from a pattern of poor choices. Now his prayers for reconciliation have finally come true and his estranged wife has contacted him with her whereabouts.

Kate Dawson was supposed to be a mail-order bride, but upon realizing she'd been deceived about her intended groom, she's now settled into life as a schoolteacher. When the mother of a student passes away, Kate assumes she'll take on care of nine-year-old Anthony – until two men suddenly show up in town, claiming to be the boy's father.

Silas can see Anthony loves Kate, so he enlists her help in reaching out to the boy and attempting to prove his paternity to the court. When a common interest in Anthony leads to an interest in each other and Silas and Kate begin to think they can overcome their rocky start, neither is prepared for the secrets and past hurts that have yet to come to light. Can Silas, Kate, and Anthony's wounded souls bind them together or will all that stands between them leave them lonely forever?

Books like Melissa Jagears’ A Bride at Last make my heart so happy. I just can’t help falling in love with a good Western historical romance novel - especially after loving its preceding novels (in this case, A Bride for Keeps and A Bride in Store). In this novel, Jagears revisits Salt Flatts, Kansas, and gives Silas Jonesey his second chance at love. Silas makes appearances in the previous Unexpected Brides novels, and after undergoing encouraging improvements, becomes quite a dashing main character. As he bonds with his love interest, the cautious, caring, opinionated Kate Dawson, through a series of natural misunderstandings and interesting challenges, their romance blossoms hesitantly, as fears from the past pop up to threaten hopes of the future. Yet, in this story of facing fears, finding family and trusting God, the romantic development and conclusion are certainly satisfying and heartwarming. I enjoyed every page of A Bride at Last and have no doubt that fans of the series will be pleased. I recommend it.
