Train Station Bride + Giveaway
Train Station Bride by Holly Bush
1887 Debutante, Julia Crawford endures a lifetime of subtle ridicule as the plump, silly daughter of a premiere Boston family. Julia strikes out on her own to gain independence, traveling to the Midwest to marry an aging shopkeeper and care for his mother. Julia finds her new home rough and uncivilized after the sophistication of a big city, while closely held secrets threaten to ruin Julia’s one chance at love.
Jake Shelling was sixteen and grew up quick when his parents died from influenza on the North Dakota prairie. Left with a half-cleared farm and two young sisters, he spent little time on his own needs . . till now. At thirty-five, he figured it was high time to have some sons and a mail order bride would suit him just fine. No expectations of love, just a helpmate from sturdy stock, ready for farm life.
Will fate and chance play a trick on Julia and Jake?
This is my second book to read by Holly Bush, and I have really enjoyed her books. They are set around the 1800s and are great love stories. Train Station Bride was funny, touching, heartbreaking, and heartening.
This book has an awesome love story in it. It was awesome to see how their love for each other helped them forgive each other. There are some plot twists that I was not expecting. That kept me very interested, and I really enjoyed it.
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
