The Bride Wore Blue, the third novel in the Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series by Mona Hodgson, is a story to which many women today can relate. It tells the story of the youngest Sinclair sister, Vivian, who has made some serious mistakes and believes that she is forever worthless because of them.
Vivian Sinclair’s train is robbed on her way to Cripple Creek. Because she is a witness, she meets Carter Alwyn, the sheriff’s deputy working on the case. Trying for a fresh start, Vivian applies for and even begins many jobs, but ends up unemployed and desperate to make it on her own without the assistance of her three sisters. In the end, she begins work as a hostess in a house of ill repute, only to discover a dead body and find herself kidnapped by the men who robbed the train she arrived on.
I enjoyed reading this book. It was an easy read with a message that each of us can relate to: we are worth much to God, even though we are sinners. I found myself relating a little to each of the characters in this book. They exhibit emotions and reactions that are true of many real-life people each of us already know. I would definitely recommend this book.
