The Marriage Agreement
Proposing a marriage of convenience to a rugged logger is the boldest move of Nora Underhill’s sheltered life. In return for Simon Wallin’s protection from her overbearing family, the unassuming seamstress offers prime frontier farmland. But their paper marriage changes when Nora’s greedy brother tries to draw her back into a life of drudgery. Her only option: move to Simon’s farm, and into the center of his loving, unruly family.
Years of shouldering responsibility have left Simon cynical and reserved. But little by little, Nora’s warmth opens his shuttered heart to joy. With their marriage claim under threat, can this practical arrangement blossom over the holidays…and become a love for all seasons?
Hott Review of A Convenient Christmas Wedding:
If you’re looking for an endearing Christian Christmas Romance look no further than A Convenient Christmas Wedding!
In this sweet novel we visit the Wallin family, once again. Their loving relationships, worship of Christ, and Christmas celebration are enough to put you right in the Christmas mood. While you needn’t have read the other Frontier Bachelors stories to enjoy A Convenient Christmas Wedding, knowing the family’s personalities certainly adds to the experience.
I absolutely love Nora. She’s such a sweetie and made me feel very protective of her. I couldn’t help but be angry throughout the book at her brother and sister-in-law. The way they abused her servant nature was shameful. It was wonderful to see how the Wallin family and especially Simon gathered around her to protect her and build up her confidence.
I do think that A Convenient Christmas Wedding is a great book to help a young or newly married female learn to be a good wife. Thinking about your spouse before yourself is an aspect of marriage that many forget. In this book we see first-hand how helpful and strengthening that can be.
