Publisher's Summary

In 1870, the four Perry sisters of Binghamton, New York, make a pact to find some way of financially supporting their nearly blind mother and their father, who suffers from consumption. They decide to answer ads from men out West looking for wives, in the hope that their new lifestyles will enable them to help their parents back East.

Sarah, the eldest and a widow, will be the first to respond to a personal ad in San Francisco's Matrimonial News, though as far as she's concerned, her one true love died fighting in the war five years ago.

After weeks of combing through ads, Sarah is drawn to 36-year-old homesteader and widower William J. Lindsay's ad for a "calm, good-natured lass from the East to help build his home and hearth." As she and William begin their correspondence, she finds herself having feelings she'd thought had died forever.

Will feelings of betrayal get in the way of her blossoming love for William, or will she follow that love out West?

This is the first book of the Sisters of Binghamton series. Each book within the series is a stand-alone story and may be heard before hearing the other stories first:

Sweet Mail Order Bride Romance

This sweet story has wonderful characters and a very sweet ending. It never really answers the question of how Sarah is going to help her family though.. Maybe in the next book? The narration was good. Kept me interested in the story.

A sweet romance

This was a sweet story but I wish it had been longer so that more could have been told of William’s background. Who his family were etc. A longer story would have enabled greater depth to the main characters. Having said this, Sarah’s family did seem to care for each other and the sisters had a good variety of personalities. I found the narrator spoke a little to quickly for me and unfortunately, her attempt at a Scottish accent was appalling.

Sweet story

It is a reply sweet story. Sarah had a sweet disposition and William seems to be a good man. A chance for a second time at a happy marriage.
