Publishers Description Craig Cavanaugh opened his briefcase and drew out the folder containing the manuscript. It was getting dark when he finished reading. No question, he thought, Kitty Traherne can write. Her face came back into his mind. He saw the pain in her eyes, heard the urgency in her voice, as he recalled the passion with which she had told him her reason for writing this highly controversial book. A slight flush had swept over her pale face as she said, 'I think this country is in danger of being drawn into another foreign war, Mr. Cavanaugh.' Kitty Traherne, who had been a field nurse in France during World War I, knew the madness of war firsthand and couldn’t bear to see it happen again. She had to risk doing whatever she could to prevent it, however the public might respond--and despite the bitter rift she was creating between herself and her family, the Camerons. She had to tell people about the horror of the last war, remind them of the awful price paid by the young men who were made to fight it. As an editor, Craig Cavanaugh dealt with writers all the time. But something about Kitty Traherne touched him in a different way. Craig would fight to publish her book--and in the process, he hoped to get to know its lovely author. . . .

Reviews - What do customers think about Daring Bride (Brides Of Montclair #13)?
Second chances at love Jan 1, 2001
Daring Bride picks up the stories of several Cameron/Montrose females from the earlier books. Kitty has a hard time forgetting the horrors she saw in the Great War and the love of her life whom she lost as a direct result of that War. Her bitterness creates a deep chasm between her and twin sister Cara that lasts for many years. In a cathartic measure, Kitty writes a book about the devastation of the Great War and meets a loving, caring book editor in the process. Could this be her second chance at love? Likewise, Evalee has lost her own great love and returns to Virginia widowed and penniless with a young daughter to raise. As she builds a business from the ground up, Evalee meets two men who love her and want her to spend their lives with them, one for whom money is no object and one for whom a love of books and teaching children is his main objective. Can one of these men be Evalee's second chance? Finally, Bryanne goes to Italy at the expense of her grandmother Garnet to get over losing her first love in a fatal accident. Will Bryanne, too, finally meet someone and get another chance at love? This is a great entry in the Montclair series, and my only criticism is that Peart needs to put a family tree in each book to keep me straight on the rather complicated family relationships.
