Publisher's Summary

When the scars of the past make the future seem dark and bleak, could love be the candle you need to light the road to happiness? 

In 1882, Daisy Creek was a small town with a dwindling economy, but for Jill Graythorn, it whispered a promise of hope.

Raised in a Boston orphanage, Jill continues to have nightmares about the fire that killed her family, and she still has the scars to remind her of her troubled past. Desperate for a brighter future, she responds to a mail-order bride ad, and soon, the deputy of Daisy Creek is her shimmer of light in the darkness.

Deputy Bill Paulson knows grief, too. When his wife died in childbirth, he thought he would never find happiness again. Encouraged by his sister, Bill finally begins his search for a wife. He knows his children need a mother, and Jill’s letters are a beacon of hope.

Jill finally makes the journey to Daisy Creek to meet the deputy. With her anxiety about her scars and Bill’s grief about his wife, their union is a gamble for both of them, and they’re surprised by their instant connection.

But no matter how strong a bond, sometimes reality is hell-bent on testing it, and events soon show that the pair’s trials aren’t over. With a crisis that triggers each of their worst fears, the couple is thrown into turmoil.

But they have one thing they didn’t have before: each other. Could it be that this is enough to get them through?

Scarred Mail Order Bride and the Widower is a heart-wrenching story of two lost souls determined to find love and correct the course of their future.

Lose yourself in a captivating tale of determination, adventure, and hope as love shines in the darkness. Click "buy now".

Sweet Historical Romance

Sweet Historical Romance

I was enjoying the story for the most part, until he takes his intended to the bar for dancing. I thought I was reading an historical book, but this entire scene was reminiscent of a contemporary story.
The narrator had very little changes in her character voices, tempos, accents, etc. I could distinguish between male and female but everyone really sounded to similar. The entire book maintained the same kadence! It was too easy to fall asleep to, and I couldn't listen straight through for this reason alone.
There was also too much droning on with details. It was a bit frustrating. But I loved the story line. The concept was beautiful and I had very high hopes for this story!
