Until she realizes that her father and stepmother intend to marry her off to him. A grand scheme ensues, cooked up by Amber and her maid.

One that will affect their lives for decades to come. Join Amber on her romantic adventure in this exciting new mail order bride story. Interview with the Author What kind of stories do you enjoy writing? My favorites are clean romance short stories, especially mail order bride. I love writing historical Western romance novellas and short stories. I also write a cozy mystery or two. They are such fun! Your books often contain an element of faith as well as clean romance and love. Is that important to you as a writer? Yes, my faith is important to me, and as an author, clean Christian western romance is my heart passion. I love being able to tell a story, be it an American mail order brides series, a mail order bride and babies tale, or a historical western romance novella, and at the same time bring a positive message of hope, faith and love to uplift listeners. Are all of your stories clean?Yes, every story I write is clean and wholesome, and I find that language and sex-free mail order bride books are just as good as those that include such things. I don't think that offensive elements are necessary to tell a great story, and I always ensure that I write great Christian Western romance free of anything that might compromise my listeners in any way. The main thing for me is always the story, and the characters. A great plot is what makes a story worth experiencing. Where do your brides and their stories come from? Mail order brides of the west, east, or sometimes even foreign brides j 1. Language: English.

From the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Crimes of the Heart comes this poignant but unromanticized story of the hard lives of pioneers on the high plains of Wyoming in the 1860s. Macon and Bess are two mail-order brides, lured to the West by the promise of new beginnings through marriage to men they've never met. While waiting for their respective husbands-to-be, one bubbling with optimism, the other mousy and plain, the two women become instant best friends.As Abundance follows the two women through their friendship and adventures for the next 25 years, this Western epic unearths the dark underside of American mythology. 1.
