Publishers Description
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a lady of rank and distinction is no match for an impoverished preacher. Yet Damian Hathaway is entranced from the moment he spies Miss Lindsay Phillips entering his church. She doesn't appear any different from the other pampered society ladies—and she's betrothed to a gentleman of the ton. But Damian is determined to find the pure heart he's sure exists underneath all the ruffles and lace. The unlikely friendship formed by Damian and Lindsay is a revelation to them both, but is frowned upon by her parents—and Damian's parishioners. Torn between two worlds, the pair must trust that their love can bridge the divide—and conquer all.

Another great book by Ruth Morren!  Jan 11, 2010
I would say that Steeple Hill's fiction line isn't the most thought provoking line with their stories often leaning more towards light romance (which I happen to love), however one of their writers, Ruth Morren writes some heart rending, sensitive, and thoroughly emotional stories that pack a serious punch. Her latest book, A Bride of Honor is another example of her terrific gift for story telling.

Like most Christian fiction there is a strong faith based message as well as a romance that will make you sigh. The difference with Ruth's stories is that they often involve a lot of drama and everything isn't always happy, the characters are true to life and deal with issues such as miscarriage, failed relationships and class relations.

I really enjoyed this book and the characters of Damian, a poor clergyman, and Lindsay, a wealthy lady of the ton. The whole story follows their relationship from first bloom of love through church controversy and the scandal of a hasty marriage. It really is an emotional roller coaster ride and you can't help but feel the love and the pain that Damian and Lindsay must deal with. Ruth does not disappoint and with each book gives me a reason to look forward to her next release.
Great Book  Oct 26, 2009
I thoroughly enjoy Ms. Morren's books. She writes books with such talent it feels as if you are there, watching the events unfold. Ms. Morren has the extraordinary talent of bringing the characters to life in such a way that they jump out at you.

Rev. Hathaway was a man I wish I could meet in today's society. He exemplifies what being a minister is all about. He shows great strength in his humility. Miss Phillips was a welcome change to some of the heroines I've read in other books. She grows as the story progesses to a from a child to a woman who stands up for those she loves and what she believes in.

The experiences in the book are experiences that anyone can relate to. Ms. Morren does a fantastic job of bring the message of God's love, power and strength to the reader. All in all, a great read.
Sweet Period Romance  Sep 2, 2009
"Bride of Honor" is a sweet romantic story between two characters of very different rank and position in life, set in 19th century London. The man is a handsome minister who is educated and respected in his role, who was not born into any money. The woman is of the "ton", the sole heir of her father's fortune, a first-year debutante. She attends church with her aunt to hear Reverend Damian Hathaway after hearing praises of his character and sermons. There is an immediate attraction on both of their parts, unbeknownst to either.

Over time the attraction grows, and they fall deeper into love with each other. But they cannot see that they love each other. Each only knows how their own feelings have developed. Miss Lindsay Phillips is a beauty who her father is excited to match up with a man after his own heart - a very wealthy, good-looking man who wants Miss Phillips for himself. What kind of a gentleman he is on the side does not seem important to anyone and Lindsay feels trapped into an engagement.

Reverend Hathaway prays for a way to save Miss Phillips from marrying this man who would not treat her well. But in his position, he is not even her pastor, and can think of no reason to call on her. When he does find a way to help her, it is not what either of them ever expected.

There are twists and turns that I did not expect. All too often, a story is so predictable that it can be almost boring, even if the writing is very good. In "Bride of Honor" I was pleased and shocked at some of the turn of events.

This is the first book that I have read by Ruth Axtell Morren. And it won't be the last! Once I got past the first couple of chapters which moved rather slowly, I was able to get into the story and found it a pleasure to read.
A delight journey into the lives of Regency England and romance  Aug 6, 2009
A lady of rank and distinction is no match for an impoverished preacher. Yet Damian Hathaway is entrance from the moment he spies Miss Lindsay Phillips entering his church. She doesn't appear any different from the other pampered society ladies, and she's betrothed to a gentleman f the ton. But Damien is determined to find the pure heart he's sure exists underneath the exterior. Torn between two worlds, the pair must trust that that their love can bridge the divide- and conquer all.

Young Lindsay is just having her first coming of age season and due to her family's wealth she is a desirable `catch' for members of the ton. Her father already has someone picked out for her, but while the young man may be wealthy, he is in all other ways not a good catch. Damian Hathaway is the new Pastor of the church Lindsay's family attends. He lives in the rectory with his sister Florence. Due to an accident early in his life, he has a peg-leg. When Lindsay and Damien meet, an immediate attraction is felt, but everyone from her father to other parishioners do whatever they can to keep the two apart.

It's only when an innocent thing happens, that these two are caught in a trap that everyone seems bent on exploiting. One thing leads to another and soon we're wondering if either will ever be in love again.

Lovely regency with delightful settings and real characters that draw us into the story and turning the pages. Ruth does not disappoint in her latest offering. Highly recommended

Excellent romantic read  Jul 23, 2009
I very much enjoyed Ruth Axtell Morren's A Bride of Honor. This is a very romantic read and by the middle of the book I was bleary eyed determined to finish to find out what happened to the heroine. I highly recommend this book!
