Publisher's Summary

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....

Steadfast Heart is wonderful

Another wonderful moving story by Tracie Peterson. What a great Christian book that is such a joy to have read. Keep them coming as we need all the good clean books we can get. Wow what a story!!!

I was disappointed enough to give up

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.

Can not wait for the rest of the series!

I loved this book and listened to all but 3 chapters in the first day! I can not wait for the rest of the series!

Beautiful story

Loved the story and the characters. I wasn't a fan of the narrator as much and wish there would have been a little more closure at the end.

Good, but not as exciting as I hoped

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?)

Disappointing

What would have made Steadfast Heart better?

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 .....

What do you think your next listen will be?

I am not sure, I am so disheartened by this one that I may take a break for awhile.

What didn’t you like about Alyssa Bresnahan’s performance?

I didn't care for the way she tried to sound like the men's voices ...

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

She did weave in truths of God, but they seemed forced. I can't explain it exactly it just didn't flow.

Any additional comments?

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.
