Mail Order Cowboy by Laurie Kingery
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Laurie Kingery wrote a Western with a new twist! Mail order theme books are popular, but Kingery sets the scene with a husband coming to town instead of a bride. Mail Order Cowboy is the first in a series entitled Brides of Simpson Creek.
In addition to a traditional Western tale, the Civil War has ended and young men are scarce in the town of Simpson Creek. The Matthews sisters are running a ranch with help from their few hands. Milly and Sarah band together with the Ladies Aide Society and form the Simpson Creek Society for the Promotion of Marriage. Others in town simply refer to the group as the "Spinster Society." Enter the first mail order cowboy...Nicholas Brookfield from England. I'll let you finish the rest of the tale. I look forward to Kingery's next installment in this new series.
What doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God. ~ Micah 6:8
