    I have fallen in love with audible and with historical westerns. This story is exactly why. Two broken people who need each other terribly, they just don’t know it yet and the path that brings them together.
    Rachel and her sister Mary Beth had been left at the hands of their terrible father when their mother left. Mary Beth has been planning for her and Rachel to go out west and be mail order brides. She had been corresponding with two men and putting away money. But she ends up passing away and Rachel makes a run for it.
    There are so many layers to this story and the narrator C J McAllistar brought this story of the heart alive and I did not want to miss a single word. I listened every spare minute I had and at the end, I could not wait to go to the next one by this author.. I just want to thank the author for making this available and she has won a devoted fan forever!

    I have fallen in love with the Brides of Jubilee Springs series. Wonderful western historicals with fantastic characters and some good old fashioned cowboy action. Rachel’s story was one that captivated my own heart and you will root for her the whole way through the story. Don’t miss out on a wonderful western romance.

    In this lightly Christian mail order bride tale, Rachel is a 18 year old woman fleeing the recent death of her mom-like older sister (caused by the abuse of their father) who follows her sister’s plan to travel to Colorado to meet a mail order intended, equally damaged by past trauma.
