Short Book Description:

Marty Dandridge Olson is ready to leave behind the pain of the past.
Answering an advertisement for a “Lone Star bride,” she leaves her Texas ranch and heads to Denver to marry a man she doesn’t know.

Jake Wythe is the man waiting for her.
Burned by love, he marries now simply to satisfy the board of Morgan Bank, which believes a man of his standing in society should be wed. Together Jake and Marty agree they are done with romance and love and will make this nothing more than a marriage of convenience.

When missing money and a collapsing economy threaten his job, Jake’s yearning to return to ranching grows ever stronger, much to Marty’s dismay. But a fondness has grown between them, as well, further complicating matters.

What will happen when their relationship shifts in unexpected ways…
and dreams and secrets collide?

My Thoughts:

Ever since I started reading ‘adult’ novels, I have loved Tracie Peterson’s books. They are some of my favorites and I have never been disappointed by any of them. They are always well written and the storylines are amazing. With that being said, I loved this book from the first page to the last.

After losing her husband in a ranching accident, Marty believes that she’ll never find love again or get remarried for that matter. But that all changes when she replies to mail-order bride request and travels down to Denver.

Set during the economy collapse in 1883, everyone is suffering. The story held me captivated and I finished it within one afternoon. I couldn’t put it down, even though I had other things that needed to be finished.

Tracie Peterson’s books are the perfect books to read if you are looking to a good clean historical novel, with a Christian base. I have never been disappointed by any of her books and I would definitely recommend them to anyone I know.
