Upon discovering an abandoned baby, Pastor Abe Merivale joins efforts with Zoe Hart, one of the newly arrived bride-ship women, to care for the infant. With mounting pressure to find the baby a home, Abe offers his hand as Zoe's groom. But after a hasty wedding, they soon realize their marriage of convenience is not so convenient after all.
Happy release day to A Bride of Convenience by Jody Hedlund! I am really loving this Bride Ship series. It's crazy and so interesting to me that these bride ships were a real thing. This author does a great job of making her characters human with clear strengths and flaws that I can relate to.
Zoe is such a gentle person, full of kindness and compassion. I loved how quickly and easily she shared her love with those who needed it most. It was so easy to love her character and her intentions. Abe struggled with his situation and his follow through a bit more than Zoe but his intentions were usually noble. He definitely became a better man and found sure footing in the wake of Zoe's love and compassion for others.
I enjoyed the setting and I also enjoyed seeing characters from previous books pop up in this story. It gives the series a sense of community and I like that. If you haven't started this series yet, now is the time! It's so good. I've loved every book so far.
