Why in the world was his first name Jonathan though? But it had it’s heart-warming and heart-wrenching moments and it kept me reading. Any ship arriving from England means good news for Virginia colony farmers.

It fell apart a little at the hride when Drew’s months long atrocious behavior toward Constance just poofed and went away without any affirmation on his part REALLY frustrating and the Christian message, which was I just love reading a book that will educate as well as entertain. But it was a regular attack.

Maybe someday she’ll indulge Josh and give his story an end. I, myself, truly love books about forced marriage or marriage of convenience that end with both spouses falling in love with each other. So Drew must marry Constance or she will have to marry Emmitt. She is fond of mathematics and is a bit of a feminist. I don’t think I would have had her equilibrium and understanding. I sympathized with her as she learned to cook and clean, things which she had taken for granted because others did it for her, especially in light of how primative her new home was.


The writer explains how the relationship evolved because by law Drew has to marry her. I absolutely couldn’t believe it still can’t when he rejected her in chapter thirteen and, yes, to those who haven’t read this book and shouldn’t be reading this section, that means he rejects her more than once. I enjoyed A Bride Most Begrudging very much for its wealth of historical details and its enjoyable characters.

But behrudging author does a good job of describing the thought processes that went on in Drew’s head, especially considering all the people he had lost in his life from Indian attacks begrudginh illnesses.

I had never heard of them. The practice of tobacco brides was implemented to solve the problem of populating the colonies.

A Bride Most Begrudging

It was a pretty good book. Return to Book Page. Drew O’Connor isn’t stirred by news of a ship full of brides. Skelly Morrow was dead. I can’t believe this.

A Bride Most Begrudging by Deeanne Gist

Begrudgng desires not to begrudge Drew anything, but can she convince him that her love is genuine? Gist is, however, able to show the helplessness and, often, hopelessness of the situation when lack of medicine, food, and good drinking water killed as many as seventy-five percent of the early colonists.


See all reviews. I tried to like this book, but it was hard to take it seriously. The subtle humor with the skunk was too funny.

One of the sisters gives birth during the course of the novel, but refuses to name the brdie till he is three years old.

Drew and Constance are interesting characters and seem to be of their time. I highly recommend this one and look forward to more of Ms.

A Bride Most Begrudging was not a perfect book but I loved it so much. What kind of a wife is that? Disease is beegrudging the background, as are the relations with the Native Americans. I must say that I don’t care much for his apparel or absence of. Still broken-hearted from the loss of his beloved, he only wants a maid mots tend his house and care for his young sister.

And that the couple truly enjoyed one another within the marriage bed.
