About the Book: Paraphrased from the media kit.
The book started with an ad in a mail order bride catalogue. Melvin Hitchcock, owns the Hitching Post Mail Order Bride Catalog. Hitchins sometimes is a little dishonest when editing ads. The book takes place in 1870. The book presents four novellas from Brownley, Clopton, Connealy, and Hatcher.
And Then Came Spring by Margaret Brownley (copied from media kit)
Mary-Jo travels across the country to find love, but he ends up dead.
Autumn's Angel by Robin Lee Hatcher
Winter Wedding Bells by Mary Connealy
I liked the book, especially Autumn's Angel by Robin Hatcher. Clay Birch requested a mail order bride, who can help him in business. He did not want widows or children. Luvena never been married, but she came with three kids--her sister's kids. The kids were never mentioned in the letters sent to him and Luvena assumed he knew from the letters he sent to her, but as I said before--Hitchens did some editing work in the letters.
All the stories in the book flowed well. It was easy to get lost in the book. I started the book with Autumn's Summer and was halfway through before I knew it. I definitely sympathized with both Clay and Luvena. On one hand, I used to be a Clay. I did not want to date men with kids. I did not like children. I was the one, who never wanted kids, but got two beautiful children now. On the other hand, I understand Luvena. She is unmarried, but has three kids to raise. The kids parents died, while at sea, and Luvena was the only relative left to support them. She has limited income and was hoping marriage would provide a place to stay and a good life for the kids. It was a beautiful story. Giveaway:
