Life in Boston in 1887 couldnt be worse for abused Sara Donaldson, who may have traded one set of problems for another. She has agreed to marry a man in Kansas whom she has never met. Nathan McClain is angry, forced to take a wife against his will. Saras loveliness only heightens his anger. Good pacing and true-to-life, flawed characters make STRANGERS BRIDE (4), by Denise Hunter, a heartwarming story of faith.
