Blue Moon Promise by Colleen Coble

It's 1887 and Lucy's just been let go from her job and gotten news that she is being evicted from the home she's known for ten years. And she's being followed by a strange man she's never seen.

All she's ever wanted to do was take care of her 3-year sister Eileen and 12-year old brother Jeb, especially since their father died a few months ago. But now it looks like she's running out of options until Henry knocks on her door and says that he's a friend of her father's and feels like he was sent by God to find her to be a wife to his son. In any other circumstances Lucy would have sent him away without a second though but with the danger and no way to take care of her siblings, she takes his offer and moves to Texas where she meets her new husband, Nate, who is very surprised and annoyed to hear that his father married him off without his consent.

What follows is the story of Lucy and Nate learning how to adjust to their new "family," how to trust one another, and how to protect their little family in the face of both physical and moral danger. I read this book in one night and I really enjoyed it. I loved all of the main characters and especially the connection and relationship between Lucy and Nate as they learned that marriage isn't about changing to earn someone's love but rather about learning to love someone for who they are.

I've never read a book by Colleen Coble but after this heartfelt and well written one, I will definitely be picking up another one. My only complaint about the book has nothing to do with the content, but that the copy I got had a number of pages that were bound out of order, which was really annoying since it was at an important point in the book and kept breaking my concentration as I tried to find the correct page. Other than that, great read and highly recommended. 4.5 stars.
