Product Description

As Heaven Wharton's father draws his last breath he puts her fate into the hands of a stranger. Travis Logan will never return to doctoring--not after the pain of all those deaths. So keeping a promise to a dying man seems like the thing to do. He arrives at the Wharton farm in the cold November rain and before he can announce his intentions the young woman on the porch shoots him. As Travis recovers he finds his heart turning to the possibilities of love. But can he and Heaven learn to accept God's plan no matter how it unfolds?

Editorial Reviews

"Diana Lesire Brandmeyer has created a delightful story about a whimsical but determined young woman who faces adversity with courage. A Bride’s Dilemma in Friendship, Tennessee is a heart-tugging tale about accepting change and learning to trust God."

- Vickie McDonough, award-winning author of the Texas Boardinghouse Brides series


"Looking for a little piece of heaven on earth? Travel with author Diana Brandmeyer Lesire to Friendship, Texas, where romance blooms, twists and turns abound, and angels really do exist."
-Janice Hanna Thompson, author of Love Finds You in Daisy, Oklahoma
 

This sweet story is filled with characters who are trying to do the right thing for themselves and the people they care about. Brandmeyer is a talented author who writes with flair and brings readers an enjoyable historical romance.

Being my first Diana Brandmeyer read, I didn’t know what to expect. What I found was a delightful tale full of humor, romance and of course dilemmas. The characters’ personalities jump out at you from the first page. You are given keen awareness into Angel’s blindness. Heaven must protect her yet Heaven herself is vulnerable trying so hard to be independent. And Travis, well, he has to learn that God gave him his gift of healing and though he can be used as an instrument in His hands, God has ultimate control. The spiritual inspiration is given in the form of prayer and a little scripture reference but it isn’t overpowering and lends nicely to the story.

Ms Brandmeyer has hit the nail on the head with this one having all the elements of a fun story. This is a keeper on my bookshelves and I’m sure it will be on yours.

    Travis Logan wanted nothing more than to be left alone to live his own life, but God has a way of changing things up. Like taking care of a dying man and having him bequeath his land to him and offered him heaven.

    Heaven Wharton had been left by her Pa to wait for him while he went to Chicago. She is in charge of the farm and all the animals, and her little sister Angel, who is blind. Heaven and Angel had lived in Nashville and were not acquainted with any of the daily chores of life. Not cooking, not housekeeping, not tending animals, or any other the other things that needed doing on a daily basis.

    When Travis and Heaven meet it is anything but a Holy union, at first anyway. They both go through many personal trials, both growing and learning at the same time. They are also both growing in their faith, Travis not starting out with much.

    Travis and Heaven both learn what it is to have a community love on them.

    My favorite quote from the book is "She giggled and then broke into a hearty laugh, grabbing her stomach, which surprised him. She was so petite, he'd have thought she'd have a dainty behind-the-hand giggle. At that moment, he knew_..".

    The discussion questions at the end of the book make you stop and think, did I read that section, maybe I need to go back and read it again. The story made me laugh with the girls, and sigh when Travis said his part.

    I would recommend this book to all Young Adults and Adults, it is a fun, engaging story that will hold your attention to the end.

    Review: A delightful read. I found this book very engaging, entertaining, and easy to read. The author has given us characters that we can relate to and cheer on in their quest to find the right answers for their situation and then follow through with doing the right thing while seeking God's ultimate direction. The author's descriptions easily allowed me to visualize the story and I found myself smiling quite often. "A Bride's Dilemma" is well suited for middle school and older readers.

    I enjoyed A BRIDE'S DILEMMA IN FRIENDSHIP, TENNESSEE very much. The romance was touching, the hero noble, the young woman delightful, and the secondary characters were charming. I liked the fact that the heroine's other choice for a beau was not a complete, cardboard villain but rather a flawed man. When the heroine and her blind sister, who had both suffered so much, had to weather a tornado that nearly destroyed their house, I felt tremendous sympathy for them! I also enjoyed the unexpected twist involving an overabundance of green beans.

    I particularly enjoyed the author's ability to draw us into the world of Friendship, Tennessee in the 1860s, soon after the Civil War. This is not a time or place I am normally drawn to read about, but the little details about life and the hardship of the times made the story come alive for me. The contrast between the more civilized Nashville and life on a farm really helped make the experience more vivid.

    I recommend this book. It delivers everything a romance should.

    I do think this novel might be my latest "cute novel find". A sweet romance with characters that had me chuckling and loving their antics upon the page, was the perfect end to my restful Sunday, while also completely entertaining me.

    I have to give a bit of attention to the most unique character names I think I've ever read. Heaven and Angel threw me once in a while, thinking I was reading a cliché instead of a name, but I loved the little twists given their names for the enjoyment of the reader.

    I loved the light-hearted side of this novel. Yes, there were serious issues the characters tackled; it's not comedy by any means, but some of the character's thought processes and their excellent dialogue had me chuckling.

    Angel just might be my favorite character in the story. What the little girl lacks in sight, she more than makes up for in wit. What a pistol.

    Heaven and Travis have great chemistry on the page and their dialogue was great. Their story is a quick read, but one that took me out of the everyday stress of my life and gave me welcome, pleasure-filled time amongst the pages. A good score for this newest Barbour line!

    This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the author for my copy to review.

    More like 4.5 stars, but still an excellent read. I loved how the author had the character's dialog so unique and well done that I could hear their voices in my head while they spoke. Each character had a distinct voice and way of thinking. That made this book stand out from others. Plus, it wasn't boring. Just being honest here. While the story itself isn't exceptional in the sense that it's not very unique, it still made me smile and had plenty of redeeming qualities. The spiritual arc in the story was one of them. And the sister being blind made me think of Mary from Little House on the Prairie. Just sayin'.

    I also enjoyed the romance. It was interesting reading alternating perspectives from two different groups of people finally intersecting about three quarters of the way through the book, and at the same time it seemed to take away from the main story. Not sure how else to explain that. At any rate, the romance was sweet and tender, the hero was admirable and appealing, and the younger sister was just precious in how she said what she was thinking without worrying about propriety. I found that adorable and her older sister's love touching. The heroine was stronger than she realized and sometimes being less dependent helps that strength come out. All in all, a solid read and one I would recommend without hesitation.
