The Preacher's Bride Claim by Laurie Kingery

My book review today is on the Love Inspired Historical The Preacher's Bride Claim by Laurie Kingery. This is the first book in the Bridegroom Brothers Series. I enjoyed this book and will look forward to reading the next book in the series. I enjoyed reading about the Oklahoma Land Rush and the tent cities. It's really hard to imagine living like that.

Elijah Thornton and his brothers were at Boomer Town waiting for the Land Rush to take place. Elijah is a pastor trying to help his sheep and keep them together through this whole ordeal but is unable to help his lost brothers. Elijah lost his fiance to illness at the same time his brother Gidian lost his wife and child. They needed a new start.

Alice Hawthorn ran away from New York where a man planned to force her marry him. He was the only way to save her mother's farm. She came to Oklahoma to get her own land and save her Mother. She has sworn to give up her nursing career and hide until the land rush. When Reverend Elijah Thornton learns she is a nurse, he calls her to help save a severely wounded man, she can't refuse him. Alice soon becomes well known and loved throughout the tent city.

Alice trusts no man and wants no part of the pastor she is drawn too. Elijah and his brothers have sworn never to marry but are drawn to help the nurse. You will love these characters and the way they bond to become more than family. I know you will love this journey in history. God bless you all and have a great week.
