MAIL ORDER BRIDE - A WESTERN PRAIRIE BRIDES ROMANCE
Ever wondered what it might be like to be a mail-order bride?
Or the groom, already married to a woman he's never laid eyes on?
On the Canadian prairies in 1886, having a mail-order romance isn't unusual. Noah Ferguson desperately needs help on his farm.
Annie Tompkins knows she can't go on working in Lazenby's cotton mill. Her little sister Bets will die if she goes on breathing in the lint from the machines.
Annie answers Noah's plea for an older woman, previously married, and familiar with farm work.
So Annie's a little less than honest in her letters. Is that really so terrible?
It's unforgivable, Noah fumes. Annie's a young virgin. But even that isn't the full extent of her lies.
Problem is, Noah hasn't exactly been straight with Annie, either, and his secret has the power to break Annie's heart.
Being a mail-order bride makes it nearly impossible when it comes to making the marriage work. It takes love, and Noah isn't willing to go there.
Can even a special Christmas gift make their marriage work?
