Item description for Second-best Bride: Book 5 (Wildrose) by Ruth Glover...

Overview
Second best. She was always second best. Meg knew she couldn't compete with her sister Marlys. She'd quit trying a long time ago. So she was only vaguely disappointed when handsome homesteader Royce Ferguson transferred his affections to her beautiful and flirtatious sister. But when Royce left town for the Wildrose Territory on the Canadian frontier with marriage on his mind, Meg wondered if Marlys would honor her pledge to follow him. And just as Meg suspected, it seemed that Marlys had finally made a promise she couldn't keep. What's a second-best girl to do when she believes the man of her dreams is about to suffer a broken heart? Should Meg take the chance of a lifetime, risking yet another rejection? With only her faith to see her through, Meg sets out to find her future. In the process, she discovers that dreams come true in the most unexpected places.

More About Ruth Glover


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Ruth Vogt Glover was born and raised in Canada's central Saskatchewan bush country, of which she writes in this in-spirational frontier romance novel, The Shining Light. 'The book is placed in the small farms of Donny-brook, the school district where I was bornnear Mac-dowall and Prince Albert, ' she explains. 'It was a hard life for adults, but for me as a child it was close to bliss. It is a wonderful place.' The author moved to Vancouver, Wash., in her late teens. It was in Vancouver she met Hal Glover, who fin-ished his term in the Army and married Ruth in 1940. The couple attended Pasadena College (now Point Loma Nazarene College) together, where Rev. Glover earned a master of arts degree. He has pastored churches in California and the northwestern United States for many years, while Mrs. Glover has pursued her love of Christian writing. That love has resulted in contributions to over 50 Christian publications, including the Christian Standard, Decision, the Herald of Holiness, Home Life, Light and Life, the National Christian Reporter, Standard, the Sunday Digest, Vital Christianity, War Cry, and the Wesleyan Advocate.

Ruth Glover currently resides in Dalles, in the state of Oregon.

Reviews - What do customers think about Second-best Bride: Book 5 (Wildrose)?

another great entry in the series  Aug 7, 2000
Like the rest of the Wildrose series, Glover introduces new characters and blends them with the familiar ones in the Canadian bush town of Wildrose. Meg has always lived in the shadow of her beautiful, more outgoing sister Marlys. As she watches Marlys toy with the emotions of homesteader Royce Ferguson, she realizes that Marlys actually has no intention of marrying him and moving to the wilderness of Wildrose. Meg, who knows that she will be happy even among the hard life and simplicity of Wildrose, eventually comes up with a plan to mend Royce's broken heart and to get out from under her sister's shadow. Meanwhile, back in Wildrose, "old maid" Miss P struggles with the fact that she is alone and has no family. As she takes care of many of the Wildrose citizens in some form or another, she eventually realizes that God has a plan for her and that some families are not necessarily made up of traditional parents and children. Back in Toronto, the Lamb family struggles physically and financially to be able to join their father in Wildrose, only to find tragedy awaiting when they arrive. For the Lambs, Miss P, and Meg, faith becomes reality as they strive to live out what they believe that God has intended for them. Second-Best Bride is a thoroughly enjoyable book about faith, love, and families.
 
Once you start it, you won't want to put it down til done!  Feb 28, 1999
I really enjoyed "Second-Best Bride" In fact I've read it several times. It's refreshing to read ficton that challenges me as well as entertains. Miss P, The Lamb children, and Meg Shaw were interesting characters that I could relate to. I'm looking forward to reading more of Ruth Glover's books.
