Short Book Description:

Despite her spoiled upbringing, twenty-year-old Lenore Fulcher isn’t pretentious. She simply believes a marriage should be built on true love. Her father, however, thinks she’s wasted enough time searching for the perfect husband. He wants to marry her off to one of his business partners–who is seventeen years her senior–an idea that is out of the question for Lenore.

Kolbein Booth, a young lawyer from Chicago, arrives in Seattle looking for his headstrong sister, who he believes may have answered an advertisement for mail-order brides. Sick with worry, he storms into the Madison Bridal School, demanding to see his sister, only to learn she isn’t there. But Lenore Fulcher is, and something about her captures his attention.

Is this the man Lenore has been searching for? She may not have long to find out…

My Thoughts:

Like every other book that I’ve read by Tracie Peterson, I couldn’t put this one down once I started reading. Although it was a bit different than her other books that I’ve read I still thoroughly enjoyed it.

I have to say though, it did take a bit to get used to all the different point of views in the book. I much prefer having one or two, any more than that it gets a little confusing, other than that though this book was really good.

One thing I really enjoyed about this book is the humor involved. There were times I sat and laughed at some of the scenes.

Filled with women going to school to learn to be proper wives, a rich young woman looking for her place in life, a headstrong female that looks out for the sick and the poor living on the streets, and a young lawyer looking for his runaway sister, you are sure to be entertained from the first page to the last.

This is another book that I would totally recommend to any historical fiction lovers.
