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?

Good read! This series has intrigued me and I've wanted to read one of Melissa's books for a while now so I jumped at the chance to read A Bride at Last the fourth installment in her Unexpected Brides series! I have not been disappointed! From the beginning Melissa unwraps a very unique and interesting story! The questions of character and parentage leave you wondering and I got so wrapped up in the story that I found myself cheering when good news came and exasperated when bad news came right along with the characters! You learn more and more about the characters as you read and it only makes you want to learn even more! Struggles with addiction and past hurts complicate matters as well as present situations. Can these characters learn to trust each other and their feelings to bring about what's best for the good or will things crumble completely along with their hearts?! TO BE CONTINUED!!!
