    This is a well written historical western romance between two emotionally wounded souls in Andrew and Clara. The author brings a heartfelt story filled with twists and turns and delivers a realistic read dealing with heartbreak and how people handle the handicap. She brings descriptive and detailed scenes and moves the story fluidly. I enjoyed and recommend this book. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. All opinions in this review are my own and freely given.

Her son was disabled having one leg shorter than the other and was bullied at school. Her husband paid no attention to the child and liked to drink. She was concerned about him bringing home "extra money"; where did it come from? When she was advised that he had been killed in a botched robbery, she learned he was a bandit and had been for years. She was blamed as being an accomplice. She needed a job but was being shunned. She then answered an ad for a mail order bride. Andrew had lost his wife in a house fire 2 yrs ago. In his grief he was neglecting his ranch and his son. His bestfriend, Tyler, approached him again about moving on with his life; but Andrew didn't want to hear it. So, Tyler placed an ad in Andrew's name for a bride. Clara began writing back and forth with "Andrew" and he supposedly sent her train fare to Texas. She was nervous when she arrived but Tyler picked them up and took her to Tyler's cabin. When he returned with Andrew, something was wrong... Andrew was livid with Tyler for deceiving Clara but he told her he would keep Tyler's word and marry her. Will he be able to let go of his grief to accept Clara? There were secrets kept on both sides. What will happen when they come out? Clara's brother-in-law had made a promise to his dying brother regarding his son. Will Darius keep his promise and try to find Clara? This was a very good story that you will enjoy. It would have been even better with editing. Several wrong words used and missing letters or words.There were awkward phrases used twice that detracted from the reading. There is an extended epilogue that takes place in 6 months to end the story. It would be nice to have a follow up story about Tyler and his new wife. I received an ARC from the author and this is my voluntary review.

This book shows how hard it is to have a blended family it is very clear the emotions that each character is feeling. Then you add in the touch of danger and you have a very good book. I enjoyed the tale it made me sad and hopeful at the same time excellent writing. I highly recommend this book.

    I always enjoy a book by Lorelei Brogan. Her characters are well done and the story line keeps you reading. In this day of blended families this is a good study of how they can be inspiring and loving. She also touches on the issue of handicaps and how they feel they about them as well has how either society sees them or how they think society sees them. This is a wonderful story of love and acceptance.

    Quite a wonderful mail order bride romance. Still do not like the extended epilogues since I have to leave my Kindle & download online. As a matter of convenience, why not write one whole story instead of a novel + an epilogue? Surely the novel could be pared down of unnecessary storyline & maintain a 80,000 word goal. Seems to me this is not a normal way to write novels. Just my honest opinion.

    This book was heartfelt. Clara and her son Tommy have a rough home life. Tommy was born with a disability and his father hates it. Andrew has the same disability but he saldo has lost the love of his life. His relationship with his son Kevin is suffering from this deep fog of grief he is in. They have a few bumps to get through but they do. The things that come out of Tommy is just unbelievable for a boy of such a young age.

    Mail order bride Bad things do happen to good people. It was heartbreaking to see how circumstances brought two wonderful people to their knees. It was amazing though how the exact circumstances and a little bit of meddling from a most dear friend could change the course of the lives of two broken souls, which eventually led to happiness.
