This plot device has been used before but Ruth Langan added an interesting wrinkle or two. Izzy McCree has arrived to marry her mail-order groom only to find that he did not send for her. One of the children wrote.

Soon, Izzy and Matt marry but she has some serious problems with men. Matt, in disgust, orders the stagecoach to pick her up on their next run (the stagecoach travels infrequently in that area).

Izzy is particularly good with the children, who are starved for attention and some mothering. Matt is a good man but rather rough around the edges. One of the children suggests that Matt court his new wife; Matt is appalled by the idea. He works long hours just to keep the children fed. We know hes a concerned father because the children are resourceful, polite and support each other emotionally.

This story comes to life with the twists and turns that Matt, Izzy and the children face. Im glad I had the chance to read this book.

The Way To A Woman's Heart...
Isabella McCree wanted to be loved. So she traded her lonely Eastern existence for life in a mountain cabin w/ her rugged mail-order husband and his brood. But could she ever put her haunting secrets behind her and become a "real" wife?
Between raising four children and training wild stallions, Matt Prescott had no idea how to court a woman again. Especially not a shy beauty like Isabella. Yet when he looked into her blue-green eyes he saw strength--as well as pain that mirrored his own--and knew he'd somehow find the way to her heart.
