I had the pleasure of receiving this ARC for review. Thank you Susan Horsnell for introducing me to another fabulous Aussie author. I look forward to discovering more of her stories.
This story is part of a collaboration between 45 authors to write 50 stories in this Mail Order bride collection.
This potential bride raised in Tennessee (reminded me a bit of a Calamity Jane) and currently living in Boston is off to marry a man she's never met in Connecticut. In an era of railroad, horse and carriage and remote places where men outnumber women, is a time in history that may sound romantic but was hard work.
I loved the connection between the characters, the reluctance from the man who had previously been hurt both physically then emotionally. They overcame obstacles thrown in their way (no spoilers you can read it yourself to find out what) The story was seamless, I felt part of the story, almost smelled the surroundings and cheered them on for their HEA.
