A glorious love story.
The romance reader's fantasy.
Carrie had grown up with 7 adoring older brothers and she was used to getting her way rather easily.
Joshua Greene was looking for a hardworking, practical mailorder bride to help with the farm and feed and clothe his children. The romance and suspense is page turner.
Just an okay read. Carrie was a little too Pollyanna for me. I really like mail order bride themes, but Carrie's "adjustment" to farm living by throwing her money at the townsfolk, although funny, was not believable. Josh's past was too secret throughout the story, but when it's revealed, ends up being too convenient. On the upside, all the characters that matter--Carrie, Josh, his children, Dallas and Tem--were enjoyable. 3 stars
