Bride Most Begrudging

A Bride Most Begrudging is a tender love story of an independent English lady, Lady Constance Morrow, who is kidnapped and sold in the Virginia colonies as a tobacco bride. Her struggles to return to her beloved home are thwarted and she faces marriage Drew O'conner, the man who claimed her. The forced marriage sparks adoration for each other, but misperceptions tear at the fragile strands that hold the couple together, and threatens to separate them forever.

Deeanne Gist does a wonderful job at weaving this story against its historical backdrop. The writing is a bit earthy, but adds an authentic touch. While this is a refreshing change, the realities and hardships of life during the American Colonial period are portrayed with a frankness that some readers might find offensive.
