A Bride at Last (Unexpected Brides #3) by Melissa Jagears

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?

My Review

A lot of hearts wrenching choices are made in this book, and yet you find that all everyone has to do is follow God’s wishes. This book focuses on Silas Jonesey/aka Unknown and Kate Dawson, one abandoned and the other ran in previous mail-order bride relationships.
There is a ten-year-old boy that Kate had befriended, and loves; she helped his mother, and now must release him to his Dad. His Mother has passed away, and now the unthinkable as she has to say good-bye.
Enter Silas who was abandoned by his wife, and has arrived to late to ask for forgiveness. He finds out that his wife, yes they were still married has a son, and another man claims him, the boy also calls this man Pa.
Everyone seems to be hurting from the current situation, and from past experiences. Will they be able to put their lives back together and find happiness, there is not a smooth road here, and you have to read to the end to find out what happens.
I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
