Victoria Lowell grew up in the privileged world of the Boston Brahmins. She had everything she could want...except love. After being jilted, the society miss travels a thousand miles to marry a man she´s never met whose romantic letters won her heart. To her surprise, and dismay, the groom who meets her at the train station exhibits little interest in romance. David O´Brien, a divorced shopkeeper of Irish descent, wants nothing to do with matters of the heart. But his young daughter needs a mother and his meddling sister believes she´s done him a favor by corresponding with a mail-order bride. Impressed by Victoria, he holds off on revealing the true author of the letters she received and sets a date for their marriage. Love isn´t part of the bargain, as far as he´s concerned. But love is what Victoria has come this far to find. When the truth finally comes out, it will take more than a miracle to deliver a happily-ever-after. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Liisa Ivary.

Jessie: Bride of South Carolina is the eighth of 50 in the unprecedented American Mail-Order Brides series. Tired of living under her father´s iron thumb of control, Jessie Wilcox decides to do the unthinkable: run away to Montana as a mail-order bride. The only obstacle in her way: the 100 miles between her home in Williamsburg County and the train depot in Charleston. Joel Cunningham is in utter disbelief when the girl he once loved beyond reason is on his front porch asking him to disobey her father´s wishes and drive her to Charleston. Logic and reason scream no; his lips, however, say yes. Will the 100 miles ahead of them be enough to overcome the five years of painful regrets, or will Jessie follow her dream for a new life in Montana? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Margo Trueblood.
