Francis knew something needed to change immediately. He was only sixteen, but he understood that his family couldn't keep living on bread and beef jerky. In town one day, he noticed an advertisement for a mail order bride, and sent off a letter…after signing his older brother's name. He'd just make sure to tell Andrew that his fiance was coming before she arrived. What could go wrong?
Tracy had lived in an orphanage since she was just a few months old. She only had a month before she turned eighteen and had to find a new place to live, complete with employment or a wedding ring. There were no jobs worth taking for a young woman, so she answered a letter requesting a mail order bride. Andrew sounded perfect. She'd meet him, and he'd be thrilled to see her, and they'd live happily ever after. Right?
