Publisher's Summary

A woman unable to trust. A man consumed by guilt. Can two lonely souls find a common ground and pave a path to love?
Grace Jennings knows how to survive, but she's learned long ago not to trust anyone, least of all a man. Sent west on an orphan train with her sister, Grace finds herself adopted into an unimaginable situation. She will stop at nothing to find and reunite with her sibling, and keep her safe from the man who is out to exploit homeless young girls.
Levi Colter is a loner by choice. Haunted by the guilt of his sister's death, he escapes into the mountains with his grief. Living an isolated life protects him from the heartache of losing those closest to him. When a stubborn young woman and a couple of runaways seek shelter at his cabin, Levi's solitary existence is turned upside down.
Thrown together unexpectedly, Grace and Levi are forced to put old hurts aside and confront their deepest demons. Can two people with troubled pasts let go of their guilt and mistrust, and learn what it means to open their hearts?

In His Arms

Great story, wish it was longer!! Cody Roberts once again does the narration perfectly.
This is the story of Levi and Grace. Grace, the blemished bride, has an obvious blemish. Actually she is quite blemished. Levi is pretty much perfect! But, he still needs Grace. You'll see.

I think Peggy Henderson does a good job of portraying the reality of orphan life in the 1800s. Everything she described was very real, unfortunately for the people who experienced it. I can always count on Peggy to be historically accurate.

Oh, and characters from the previous books do make an appearance, which I love.

In His Arms: Blemished Brides Book 3

Grace Jennings is my favorite blemished bride. She learned early on that men couldn't be trusted. It started with her worthless father. First, he sent her out to beg rather than get a decent job. Second, he didn't pay for a doctor when she was injured, leaving her with a permanent handicap. Third, and lastly, he abandoned her and her little sister. Then the priest who was entrusted with the safety of orphans allowed her to be sold to the owner of a bordello. After suffering from unspeakable horrors, she escapes on a quest to find her sister who she was ripped away from. Along the way, she rescues as many girls as possible from the clutches of the bordello owner. When her rescue of her sister landed her with an extra person to care for, she didn't hesitate to help him too. Grace is incredibly brave. It was wonderful that she found a kindred spirit in Levi. He knew firsthand the pain that she suffered because he too was on an orphan train and was separated from his sister. He never got the reunion with his sibling but he got a second chance at happiness with Grace. It was admirable that they both decided to help other orphans learn a trade that that they could use to better their lives.
