A Romance West

A Mail Order Romance Novel



When Alice Wynther's parents tragically died, Alice's Aunt Ida welcomed her into her home in Massachusettes. Now years later, Alice is forced to realize that she cannot stay there forever... Especially because the bank is taking Aunt Ida's home and land.



In the hopes of achieving her lifelong dream of becoming a wife and mother, Alice first tries to convince her handsome neighbor Jake that he should marry her. When he confesses that he is to be married to someone else, Alice turns to the help of the local publication. When she meets Mary, and reads Richard Harroner's letters, the winter seems to last forever, preventing her from traveling to Kansas as soon as possible.



Finally, the time comes and Alice and Aunt Ida must go their separate ways. As sad as it is, a sense of adventure exists in Alice's heart. However, the moment she steps off the train in Kansas, she meets Richard's neighbor, Helen, and learns that tragedy struck again. With no family or home back in Massachusetts, Alice must decide whether to stay in Kansas or to continue her journey elsewhere. The instant that she meets Helen's brother, David, she knows that he will have an impact on her healing from losing the man she had full heartedly agreed to marry and spend her life with.



Can Alice find the closure she needs to move on from the guilt in her heart or will she end up on a train bound for Massachusetts to begin her mail order bride journey again?

3.0 out of 5 stars An o.k. read! March 22, 2014

First let me say that the grammar and spelling in this book were horrible and distracting! OMG, a 5th grader could write better than this! Where are the editors? This should have been a .99 special, instead of $2.99! I feel like I was ripped off paying so much for this "draft" copy. Shame on you Amazon for allowing these books in your library! Now to the story: I liked Alice and her relationship with her aunt and the love they shared. I also liked Jake and thought he should have stood up to his dad and not let him force a marriage on him. If he had feelings for Alice he should have declared himself and married her instead, particularly after his dad died. I also liked Helen and David and thought that Alice and David made a great couple. With death all around them I can understand the quick marriage and not to waste a day. I think that it was a sweet story, but too much of the book was spent in Massachusetts and not enough time in Kansas building up the love story for Alice and David. The letters back and forth from Richard were sweet, but should have been not been made the main storyline since he didn't make it. More time should have been spent building up David's story and growing love for Alice. Needs some work on this story Claire/Karolyn. While you are at it fix your other books in this series. They are all plagued with the same crappy grammar and spelling and editing snafus.

2.0 out of 5 stars I don't recommend this book. July 19, 2014
By p quinn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Mail Order Brides books, but this one is disappointing.. No depth. Sounded like a teenager wrote it. Spelling and grammar were horrible. Also, the definition of "widower" is "a man that has lost his wife." Ms. Charlins listed the character of Helen as a widower. At first I thought it was a mistake in spelling since there had been so many. "You're a widower, aren't you?" "Helen had become a widower after her husband died." And on it went. Had the book been full length, I would have tossed it aside. Since it was a novella, I chose to finish it. I don't plan to purchase any more books by this author. I would rather spend my time reading "Shakespeare." He makes more sense.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tragedy healed by love May 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read all the novels in this series and have enjoyed all. The common thread character, Mary, shares her compassion and wisdom with young women as they come to a crossroads in their lives. Alice reaches that crossroads and sets a course that's met with tragedy. With the love and support of friends, she overcomes tragedy to find love. If you take a "red pencil" to the text, you'll find a lot of grammatical and typographical errors. These books seem to be written quickly and with little, if any proof reading, but if you can get past that, the stories are delightful reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars So predictable July 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I need to keep a list of authors not to read. This one would be on it. Forgetting I read a couple others by the same author, it came back to me very quickly when this story started sounding very similar to another book in the series. Not a lot of variation in characters or setting. This book also had a lot of errors, the story was simplistic and basic, the characters lacking.

The one bedroom scene was stiff and unemotional. Alice fell in love at the drop of a hat. I really couldn't find any redeeming qualities to this story. If you're looking for a good historical romance about mail order brides, this isn't it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment July 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had high hopes for this book, but as the story progressed, I became disappointed in it. A lot of time was spent setting up the story of her trip to the West. Once she got there, it sort of fizzled. It's like the author was hitting a deadline and had to finish up the story quickly. I would have liked it better if she had spent as much time fleshing out the second half of the book as she did the second.
