Mail Order Bride: Emily Seeks out the Traveling Preacher for Love is the emotional story of a Southern woman, right before the Civil War, who is determined to find a childhood sweetheart in a traveling preacher. When he told her that his life was being an evangelist and that traveling across the country wasn't exactly a good life for a Southern lady, she told him that she wanted to join him in his ministry, as she had attended school and learned all about preaching.

That didn't suit him and he returned to Colorado. Even though sick, she began her travels to find and then marry him, by stagecoach, train, then eventually via wagon train along the Oregon Trail, accompanied only by a freed slave.

An eye opener!

If you could sum up Mail Order Bride: Emily Seeks out the Traveling Preacher for Love in three words, what would they be?

Persistence, fortitude, and faith :-)

I particularly liked Mr. Smith's performance of Eban - he was perfect!

This story was fascinating in its description of travel in the old west!
