Author: Heather Gray
Rating: 5 stars
About the Book
Some people get a mail order bride. She got a mail order man.
A well-meaning friend places an ad to find a mail order husband for Sarah, the proprietress of Larkspur’s stage and mail office. Sarah, who is generally quiet and reserved, doesn’t know about the ad and has no idea what to do with all the people that are showing up in her community. Before long, the town is overrun with men and mail alike. Sarah is trying to avoid some men who have accosted her on the street when she stumbles into Samuel. Through long days spent together at the stage office, some very adventurous pots of coffee and a shared faith, the two become friends. Sarah knows that Samuel is hiding something from her, something important, but that doesn’t stop her heart from leaping wildly into love. Lacking the confidence to trust her heart, Sarah wars with herself over the feelings she can no longer deny. When some of the men who have come to town show their true intentions, a shootout follows. Sarah finally gets answers to many of the questions circling through her mind. One question remains, though. Where will her mail order man go when the dust settles?
What a fun story, instead of a mail order bride, we have a mail order man! No, Sarah Jenkins did not place the ad looking for a husband, her best friend Minnie, with good intentions, placed an ad because she felt that Sarah could use a husband to help her out. Sarah lost her mother when she was six years old and then right as Sarah became a young woman, her father died suddenly. Sarah continued on in his business running the stage coach office and handling the mail. Well, the town started having an influx of men, some of which made Sarah feel uneasy, and then the stage coach office was over flowing with letters addressed to “Eligible Female, Larkspur, Idaho Territory.” Not just a few but bags full of letters, so many that it required an extra stage to bring the mail in. Sarah’s friends, Ida and John also had a relative come into town, Ida’s cousin, Samuel Livingston.
Now this story is not only a story of two people finding love, but it is a gentle reminder of the love God has for His children. We have mystery and suspense, because part of Samuel’s business is kept a secret. We watch and see the relationship build between Samuel and Sarah. We learn about their lives before they met and watch they fall in love. This story is a clean story with a reminder that as God’s children, His will in our lives is for us to worship Him and to live our lives with Him as the head of it. I do love HEA.
