The Preacher’s Wife


The Preacher’s Wife

By: Brandi Boddie


I received a copy of this book from Booketeria for my honest review.


About the Book:


Can this small-town girl trade her tarnished past for a respectable life?
During the hot, windy summer of 1870 in the burgeoning prairie town of Assurance, Kansas, Marissa Pierce is fed up with her abusive boss. She longs to start a new life and is growing weary of convincing townsfolk that she is most certainly not a prostitute.

Civil War veteran and preacher Rowe Winford arrives in town intent on leaving the tragic memories of his deceased family behind. Although Rowe has no plans to fall in love anytime soon, the plans of God rarely match those of man.

Faced with adversity and rejection from the town and Rowe’s family, can Marissa overcome her past, renew her faith, and experience the life of love that God has planned for her?

My Review:


Rowe Winford arrives in Assurance, Kansas hoping to start a new and leave behind the memories of his deceased family. Marissa Pierce, a saloon girl, is ready for a change. Tired of her life and working for a boss who is mean and doesn’t care. What happens when these two cross each other’s paths?


Rowe notices Marissa has she is walking down the street in an outlandish costume. He can’t shake the feeling that God is speaking to him to help her. But will she accept his help? Will they fall in love? Better yet will they marry?


I loved The Preacher’s Wife, the first book in the Brides of Assurance collection by Brandi Boddie. This is the first book by her that I have had the opportunity to read. You will fall in love with her writing ability and how she can draw your attention in and it feels like you are there with these characters. I can’t wait to read Book 2 in this series.
