These are the stories of 3 orphans who become Mail Order Brides and find love and families of their own on the Western Frontier in the 1880s.
Orphaned at age 8, Catherine Daily tightens up her boot straps and sets out on a journey to leave her dreary life in Boston for the wilds of Oregon. Since losing her parents so long ago, she dreams of having a family of her own. She expects that country living will involve a lot of hard work, but she didn’t count on was how her city ways would make it a difficult adjustment.
Raymond Cowan is a rancher and farmer in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. When he hears about mail order brides, he places an ad in hopes of getting a bride for himself. He doesn’t expect love, but hopes that the relationship will someday evolve into a loving union.
Sparks fly when Catherine brings her city ways to the wild frontier. Raymond’s patience goes only so far before he finds himself having doubts about this whole arrangement. Maybe he should send her back to Boston and be done with her and this whole crazy idea.
After of months of exchanging letters, Moira finally receives the letter from Henry that she has both prayed for and dreaded. On her way to the train station, she is given a letter that she is told to open on the day she turns 21. What she learns that day, changes everything about who she is and where she came from. She must come to terms with these truths before she can agree to marry.
Henry is a younger brother to Raymond. Together, they are ranchers in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Henry wants what Raymond has—a wife who loves him. He has big plans, but not the substantial means that it will take to realize his dreams for his own ranch. He feels unworthy and is reluctant to tell Moira his truth.
Miscommunications abound in this story between the timid and agoraphobic Moira and Henry, the dreamer.
This is the story of Bridget and George. She wants a prince or a knight–some one who will fight for her. He assumes that she is his alone and that the marriage proposal is already in the bag.
Bridget becomes suspicious of George’s intentions after reading several of his letters. When there is no hint of a marriage proposal, she considers other options. Maybe she should just find someone in Boston to marry. But then she considers that no one from a well-to-do family would marry the likes of her. She decides to set out for Oregon on her own. No waiting around for this girl!
George, the youngest of the Cowan brothers, desires a wife who is just like those of his brothers. His letters are full of flattery and flirtatious words–but no marriage proposal. He is confident that Bridgett is his alone–and that she wants only him. After all, she came to Oregon without being asked!
When Bridget meets George, she is immediately smitten–but George will have to prove himself as a worthy suitor.
