Publisher's Summary

An earthquake shook more than the ground in Silverpines, Oregon.

A silver-mine cave-in and lumber-camp mudslide caused a shortage of young men in town. Women were saddled with running businesses and ranches alone. Laura Bennett, owner of White Oaks ranch, sends for a mail-order husband. 

Max Winters lost the love of his life, Catherine, to another man, so he decides to answer Laura's ad. Since his true love was gone, he'd settle for a good partnership and a new life. He travels to Silverpines and is met with a beautiful bride and her adorable daughter, but also many trials and setbacks. 

Will they overcome the tribulations and truly fall in love even after Catherine shows up as a widow?

Sold on this series!

I am new to this series but will be reading other books in it now. The premise of a destroyed town in need of husbands to save the day is intriguing to me--almost like fairy tale princes coming to the rescue.
Barb Goss writes with excellent description so that I could see the people and places, which I really enjoyed. I could just close my eyes and listen to the narration so that it became like a movie in my mind. The dramatic narraction just added to that effect! I highly recommend this book .

Second chancea

I loved this book. Laura's husband was killed and she needed someone to breed horses. She sent for a mail order husband. Laura had a four year old daughter who was having a hard time with the loss of her husband. Strong characters and great story of finding love.I was given a copy and this is my honest review.

A Mail Order Husband?

Maxwell is so upset that Catherine married another man and not him. He decided to answer an add to marry a woman in Oregon and left his home in Texas.

Laura had lost her husband to death and put an add in the papers for a husband, when she accepted Max he took a train to Oregon.

Now what happens when they meet each other? Will they really decide to marry or would they find they weren't right for each other?

Trouble came to White Oaks Ranch.....What kind of trouble? Who was causing all the problems?

Laura had a daughter, would Carolyn (carro) accept Maxwell, or fight having her mother marry him? How would Max take to Carro? Could he treat her as his own daughter?

I loved this story, it was sweet and beautifully written and the narrator also made it a story worth listening to. I recommend that you should get this book or Audiobook to read or listen to yourself.
