I love the freedom of writing the stories that touch my heart and linger in my mind. When I read about men heading west for the Gold Rush and discovered that they sent off for mail order brides to fend off the loneliness, I decided to write these stories. The women in this series are all sisters who move to Colorado, and then their father decides to join them a few years later.
Julia meets Stone Michaels who has become a successful rancher. He has everything he wants, except for one thing: a family. Julia has to decide whether to marry Stone or return home to Virginia.
Widow Lenora runs out of money, so she goes west to meet Jesse Grant, a pastor who lost his wife and children in a fire. They both have to come to terms with their grief ... and hopefully fall in love with each other in the process.
Mary Hollister loses her job as a governess, so she becomes a mail order bride for Lester Packard, a man who is a tad rough around the edges. Can Mary soften him up enough to make him lovable?
Youngest sister Sara has never had to worry about a thing, until she is forced to grow up. When she becomes a mail order bride for Marvin Olson, she is faced with what is involved in becoming a full-fledged woman.
Widower John Hollister misses his daughters, so he moves to the West to be near them. Loneliness overwhelms him, so he sends off for his own mail order bride, Viola. They have quite a bit to overcome, with the biggest problem being Viola's relationship with one of his daughters.
