Wildflower Bride (Montana Marriages, #3) Wildflower Bride by Mary Connealy

Glowing Sun, a white woman raised by the Flathead tribe, has never met a man she didn’t want to pull a knife on, including the man who’s determined to marry her.

Glowing Sun has vague memories of her former life, including a name—Abby Lind. When she’s forced to sever all links with her adopted Indian family, Abby wonders if she’ll ever find a home again.

Tenderhearted Wade Sawyer, responsible for Abby’s survival during the village massacre, convinces the knife-wielding woman to return with him to the Sawyer Ranch, never realizing danger lurks behind every corner. Can they survive long enough to fall in love?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As the third book in the Montana Marriages series, “Wildflower Bride” brings another comedic romance off the pages an into the imagination of readers. Although starting the novel knowing that this was a story of a character that I despised in the beginning of the series it was amazing how author Mary Connealy was able to bring a character’s personality into favor for me. The first two books in this series are my favorite from Mary so far. I cannot wait for future stories!

Wade Sawyer, a man changed finds himself in love with Abby Linscott also known as Glowing Sun. Observing the changes in Wade’s behavior and soul makes a painful yet hopeful example that anyone can change. Abby born to a white family yet raised by a Flathead Indian tribe after the early death of her birth family then finds herself alone again after the massacre of her tribe. Through the strength of God, Wade is able to return home to face his abusive father and Abby is given the opportunity to open her heart and trust that she will not be alone again. These pages provide a hopeful story of love that will entertain.

  1. Awesome review! I can’t wait to read this one. I too was amazed that Mary could take a character I loathed and turn him in to someone I am rooting for.

    I love how Wade sees him self as worthless and Glowing Sun sees him as kind and gentle.

  5. @Mary Connealy:

    Wade did need the redemption, and he got it. I was surprised to see Mort change his tune as well..

    About the teeth. It’s a brand new experience! She waited a while, but now it looks like we will get several at once. *sigh*
