A Tailor-Made Bride

By Karen Witemeyer


Jericho "J.T." Tucker wants nothing to do with Coventry's new dressmaker. He's all too familiar with her ilk – shallow women more devoted to the latest fashions than to the true beauty of godly service. Yet as his daily routine intertwines with hers, he discovers that except for her well-tailored clothes, this seamstress is not at all what he expected.

Hannah Richards is confounded by the man who runs the livery across the street. The unsmiling fellow riles her at every turn with his arrogant assumptions, but his acts of kindness contradict his cantankerous attitude. Which side of Jericho Tucker reflects the real man?

When Hannah spruces up Jericho's sister to help her catch a beau—leading to uproarious consequences for the whole town—will Jericho and Hannah find a way to bridge the gap between them?

Book Takeaway:

What happens when believers disagree about what the Christian life should look like? A TAILOR-MADE BRIDE demonstrates how submissive hearts open to the Lord's leading can bridge such a gap with grace, fostering relationships that would otherwise wither. Such a journey is not easy, and the characters in this story reflect that struggle as they battle judgmental attitudes and assumptions and endure a period of questioning that sends them on a hunt for truth beyond their black-and-white interpretations.

"A delightful period experience with humorous views into the complexity of differences and misunderstandings of men and women."
- Delores on September 21, 2010

"I've noticed lately that quite a few historical romances are set in Texas. So it would have been easy for A Tailor-Made Bride to get lost in a sea of same old stuff. But this novel is anything but run"
- Jennifer on June 22, 2010
