Mail Order Bride: Taking the Train West for Love is a beautiful story about a woman who, after two years of corresponding with a man out west, accepts his invitation of marriage and sets out on her journey. On the train she meets a stranger and enjoys their frequent chats and stories from the bible. One night, everything is literally turned upside down as the train comes to a violent screeching halt and they both find each other in the darkness, then jump from the train with nothing more than the clothes on their backs, but with the woman clutching her bible firmly in hand. What happens after that is a test of the will to survive, for both their physical bodies and their spirits.

Smooth storyline!

Perhaps you’ll be surprised by the ending of this story. I was.

Mail-order bride books have always intrigued me. The concept of a woman leaving her home and the people in her life to travel across country, marry a man she didn’t really know. And live often in relative seclusion for the rest of her life, is bewildering to me.

This groom seemed special. A godly man. A man who put her second only to God was refreshing! I don’t want to spoil the book for you, afraid I’ll say too much. SoI’ll not comment about his time on the trail nor the stranger he meets. Just know you’ll enjoy this story.

Suitable for all ages.
