Never give up on your dream – or on love.
Unlike other women her age, Anna MacDonald has never set much hope on finding herself a husband.
Far more important is the task of finding a position of employment…in a society that is untrusting of female doctors, that has proven challenging so far, to say the least.
So, Anna resigns herself to replying to a collection of advertisements from men seeking mail-order brides. Who knows? Maybe one of them might even live in a town that would welcome her as a doctor.
But what man would ever want a wife who places her career above family?
Alec Jenks knows all too well the challenges that come with choosing a career of your own design.
He was supposed to be a doctor like his father, but instead he chose the life of a blacksmith – much to the dismay of his mother.
Now that his career is established in Iron Creek, Alec has come to think that it might be time for him to start a family of his own – but there is just one problem.
With his overprotective mother still living with him, things might get a little complicated if he were to bring home a new wife.
Alec knows that he needs to find the right woman – someone who will love him regardless of his meddlesome relatives. And when he receives Anna’s reply to his advertisement for a bride, he thinks maybe she could be just the one for him….
If only she can survive his mother.
The Blacksmith’s Mail-Order Doctor is a charming story of the challenges that come with life and love. With time, distance, and Alec’s meddling mother standing in their way…will Anna and Alec find a way to be together? Or is this just the beginning of the end?
