Too Rich For A Bride

I just got finished with reading Too Rich For a Bride by Mona Hodgson and I absolutely loved it. It is the second book in the Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series. The first book is called Two Brides Too Many.

In this novel you are taken back in time to the late 1800's in the west. Colorado is the backdrop and the main character is a spunky young lady named Ida Sinclair. Ida moves out west with two of her three sisters who have settled down in a growing town called Cripple Creek, Colorado. She wanted to become a successful businesswoman. In this time period women were not welcomed very easily into businesses to work. Ida is very determined not to get married, but to make it instead in the male dominated business world.

She loves God and her sisters and other characters in the book reference the bible and God many times. Most of the characters even pray on a regular basis. The book is filled with scripture, church-going, and Jesus references. Each character becomes more mature in their walk with Christ as the book goes on.

This novel is about loss, love, and forgiveness. It's about finding faith when you think none can be found. I cried a few times while reading the book. Some were sad tears and some were happy tears. I loved reading this book and will probably read it again in the future.

"Ida wants a career more than anything else, so she shrugs off the suitors and pointed 'suggestions' that young ladies don't belong in business. Will it take unexpected love - or unexpected danger - for Ida to realize where her priorities truly lie?" -Quote from the back of the book

God Bless,
