Despite her spoiled upbringing, 20-year-old Lenore Fulcher isn't pretentious. She simply believes a marriage should be built on true love. Her father, however, thinks she's wasted enough time searching for the perfect husband. He wants to marry her off to one of his business partners - who is 17 years her senior - an idea that is out of the question for Lenore. Kolbein Booth, a young lawyer from Chicago, arrives in Seattle looking for his headstrong sister, who he believes may have answered an advertisement for mail-order brides.
Sick with worry, he storms into the Madison Bridal School, demanding to see his sister, only to learn she isn't there. But Lenore Fulcher is, and something about her captures his attention. Is this the man Lenore has been searching for? She may not have long to find out....

I have tried to keep going with this story because I have liked Tracie Peterson's books before, but I had to give up. It was too boring and the characters were too immature and unreal.
It was a good clean Christian romance with a solid story line and eccentric characters.
However, I would have liked a little more excitement or adventure. There was also one part that I feel was left without answers....or maybe I missed it (What happened to the poor Chinese girls and the bad man who was trying to sell them?)
I would give the story some believable challenges. Maybe even some that don't turn out "happily ever after" .... It is just too unbelievable that two people with huge wealth fall in love at first sight, have a perfect wedding with no expenses spared and also have a heart for the poor. Just seemed very hypocritical .....
I am not sure, I am so disheartened by this one that I may take a break for awhile.
I didn't care for the way she tried to sound like the men's voices ...
She did weave in truths of God, but they seemed forced. I can't explain it exactly it just didn't flow.
I found myself thinking that some of the situations would really turn into situations similar to what normal people face .... But no these were rich privileged people. I kept thinking to myself ... "REALLY?" Must be nice, but very little I could relate to.
