Publisher's Description

Intriguing Glimpse into the Past by Bestselling Historical Author Judith Miller

With her penchant for seeing the best in everyone, Hope Irvine sees a world full of good people in hard places. When her father accepts a position traveling in a chapel car as an on-the-rail missionary, she is determined to join him in his efforts and put her musical skills to good use by serving the mining families of West Virginia, saving their souls, and bettering their lives.

Luke Hughes shares Hope's love of music and her love of God, but as a poor miner he knows he can offer her no future. Still, the notes she sings resonate in his heart. When she begins to travel with a young mine manager to neighboring counties, Luke can hardly suppress his jealousy. It isn't until he begins to suspect these missions of mercy might be the mine manager's cover for illegal purposes, though, that Luke feels justified in speaking up. But how can he discover the truth without hurting Hope or, worse, putting her in danger?

    I didnt know that there were Pullman chapel cars. They only stayed in an area for a short time bringing God's message to isolated areas that did not have a resident preacher. Hope is a good name for this character. After living apart from him for some time, she convinces her father to let her go with him to extend missionary services to a small community. They travel in the chapel car, where they live and hold church services. Two men come into her life. Only one genuinely cares for her but she has a hard time seeing them clearly not realizing the situation shes being put in. Engaging characters, very well written tale that keeps you on the edge until the end. Good lessons in faith, learning who you are and caring throughout. Another fabulous book from Judith Miller!

    I haven't had the chance to read anything by Judith until now. I was intrigued by the plot and setting of this book.

    I have to say I will definitely be reading her books in the future. This book is rich in character development and the unique setting of a chapel train car.

    I also appreciated that this story is so much centered around spreading the God News of Jesus Christ. That is difficult to do and still maintain an interesting plot and love story. But Judith managed to do it.

    Hope is a determined young woman who won't let anything stand in her way when it comes to sharing the good news. Luke is a wonderful hero who shows up always just in time.

    Overall I really enjoyed this book. If you like historical romance I think you will like this one.

    A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher. All opinions are my own.

    One of the things that drew me to read The Chapel Car Bride by Judith Miller was the concept and the cover. So I was very excited to read it, however, it did not meet my expectations.

    Don't get me wrong, this is a very well-written book, but I was longing for the story about the bride (Hope) and her groom and at least a little tension on how she becomes one, but it just wasn't there.

    From the outset, we know who the villain is and this bothered me because I would have liked to guess (along with Hope) which beau to trust of the two who were trying to court her. Yes, there was deception involved but not in the way I was expecting. Also, there were few exciting moments that would urge me to keep reading. Instead, I had to force myself to finish the novel. Not a good sign.

    The history of the Chapel Car was intriguing and I loved the faith displayed by Hope, her father, and Luke, which is always a plus. Unfortunately, that alone could not save this book for me.

    I loved this story. I had never heard of a chapel car before. It is a wonderful idea to take a chapel to the small towns through the use of a train. It is fascinating. I love all the characters in this book. They are great together. Every character needs to learn some very interesting lessons throughout this story. Can Hope and Luke get together? I received this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

    The Good:

    One thing I know I can count on from Miller is at least one character who will grab my attention. The Chapel Car Bride is no exception. The character of Luke is so refreshing as Miller chooses to have him visibly wrestling with how to live out his faith in real life scenarios. Luke's imperfections are so relatable (jealousy, family concerns, love) that his character leaps off the page to the point of overshadowing the rest of the cast.

    I also appreciated the details Miller put into the town of Finch to help it find it's foundation. While I am unfamiliar with the realities of coal mining and the towns that sprang up from the workers, Miller walked a careful line to bring her characters realities to life without exiting the narrative. While I appreciate a good world-builders it is so much sweeter when you don't have to exit your immersion in the story to get the details and Miller captures this wonderfully.

    The Interesting:

    The character of Nellie fascinated me. Although a secondary character, Miller easily allowed Nellie the most character growth and a sequel featuring Nellie would certainly not be outside the realm of possibility.

    The Frustrating:

    While I found the plot interesting with the mining safety, the love triangle, and the illegal activity threatening the main characters. I found Hope and her father became overshadowed by Luke and their own story line. This made them forgettable at times and left feeling more like plot devices at others rather than the central characters they should have been.

    Overall I enjoyed this read. There was ample plot line and world building for an enjoyable afternoon read, however, thanks to the main character getting overwhelmed by her own plot line, this is probably a one time read for me.

    3 out of 5 stars
