A Review of Deeply Devoted by Maggie Brendan

When I had the opportunity to participate in the Revell blog tour for Maggie Brendan's new book, I had to jump at the chance.  After reading Maggie's Heart of the West series I could hardly wait for her newest book to come out.  Deeply Devoted is the first release in The Blue Willow Brides series and it was wonderful.

Catharine Olsen left Amsterdam Holland, with her two younger sisters, and headed to Wyoming to be the mail-order bride of Peter Anderson.  She brings with her the Blue Willow china she inherited from her mother.  Unfortunately during their voyage to America, all but the Blue Willow tea set were broken.

Peter is expecting to pick up his bride-to-be at the beautiful Cheyenne train station, but when the train arrives he learns that not only will he have one woman to share his life with but two additional ones as well.  Catharine hadn't told Peter she was bringing her siblings for fear he wouldn't want to marry her.

Catharine and her sisters are use to having servants to help take care of their needs.  But as they enter into their new life in Wyoming they are thrown into a lifestyle of rolling up their sleeves and going to work in the fields, the garden and the kitchen.

Deeply Devoted is a sweet story of love and forgiveness..  Between the pages there are secrets to be found out, trusts broken and then to be mended.  It touched my heart in so many ways.  I stayed up long into the night to finish this wonderful book and I must say that I shed quite a few tears along the way.

On a 5-Star Scale:  5 STARS

I would highly recommend Deeply Devoted to anyone wanting a good Christian romantic story to read.

I would like to thank Donna Hausler with Baker Publishing for my review copy.  I received my copy for free in order to read and give my honest review, which I have done.

"Available September 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group."
