Frontier Engagement by Regina Scott

My review today is on the Love Inspired Historical, Frontier Engagement. This is the third book in the  Frontier Bachelors Series. I have enjoyed this series about the Mercer Belles; how came from the East around South America to Seattle. Men paid Mercer to get them brides but  the women that came didn't come to marry, they came to civilize Seattle. These stories are about women who were heartbroken and had no intention of ever marrying. I can't imagine giving up everything that you know and love to travel thousands of miles to an uncivilized world but you have to respect the people that did.

Alexandrina Eugenia Fosgrave grew up believing that she was a princess in exile. She was told that soon someone would come for her family to reinstate them as rulers of Battenburgia. Recently she found out that her parents picked her up somewhere on the trail; all their stories of the homeland were lies to steal from well meaning people. Now that her family has been put in prison she uses her last coins to get to Seattle. When James Wallin comes and asks her come out into the wilderness to teach school she doesn't know whether to believe him or not. She finally goes to his family for an interview. Rina as James calls her, is threatened and decides to accept a different position. James has promised to take her wherever she wants to go if things didn't go well. They make a fake engagement to protect her reputation as they travel across country.

James Wallin blames himself for the death of his father. He was supposed to watch out for problems when they cut down a tree, a tree limb fell and killed his father. It was all his fault, he could never trust himself to be responsible for anyone else. He would never marry but he hadn't planned on spending days in the wilderness with the beautiful Rina.

Two people on a journey to find trust, love, and forgiveness. A great story about faith and redemption. You will love this story, it's well written and full of surprises. God makes a way for us and even though it might not be what we think we want and it will be much greater than anything you had hoped for.
