About the Author
Their closest neighbor was about one quarter of a mile away, so her little brother was her playmate and her best friend. That fierce friendship lasted until his death in 2006.
Cynthia was and is an avid reader. Her mother was a librarian and brought new books home each week. This is where young Cynthia first got the storytelling bug. At age ten, she wrote her first romance about a little boy she liked at the time.
Cynthia credits her wonderfully supportive husband Jim and the great friends she's made at CRW for saving her sanity and allowing her to explore her creativity.

by Cynthia Woolf (Goodreads Author)
I really like to read mail order bride books for some reason. I love the old frontier stories. They aren’t deep, they don’t take huge amounts of concentration and thought. They don’t challenge the brain much. I just enjoy them! Some authors are able to make the stories very real by going into great detail on the different ways they did things. They didn’t have our luxuries back then that’s for sure. A woman who has a child before she is married is really frowned upon and most don’t want anything to do with her, to employ or to marry. Sarah Johnson slept with her true love, they were to be married in the next few days. He was going to be called up to go to war. He did get called up and his captain wouldn’t even allow him to take a few hours that day to marry his true love. She ended up pregnant, he died. Her Father threw her out of his home. A family friend took her in, but when she passed, Sarah and her daughter had nowhere to go. Her cousin wanted to marry her but she wasn’t about to marry a cousin. She found an add about Matchmaker and Co. and decided to visit them. She was soon on her way to marry a rancher and she sent a telegram stating when she would arrive. Her letter and telegram arrived but it was too late, her soon to be groom had been mauled by a bear and had died. His brother picked her up at the station with his daughter. He absolutely was not going to marry again. His wife had been killed during a bank robbery and his daughter was the only one to see it. She stopped speaking then. He lived with his sister. He was going to take her to town soon so she could see if she could get a job, but she fell off the porch and broke her leg. He had to get to know her like it or not. Soon he began to like her. Whether they end up together or she ends up working in another town is for you to find out. Her cousin comes after her he wants to marry her still. Read the book and find out! I received this e-book in exchange for an honest review.
Description as found on Good Reads:
Unexpectedly homeless, un-wed mother Sarah Johnson has few options. They could go live with her cousin William, but Sara believes there’s something untoward about his offer and it leaves her feeling uncomfortable. She's qualified to be a governess, but no one will have her because she wasn't married when she had her precious MaryAnn. Matchmaker & Co could be her salvation as mail-order-bride to Mr. John Atwood.
Single father, John Atwood, is raising his daughter the best he can in the wilds of the Colorado Territory but knows he needs help. No woman he knows wants to take on the raising of his daughter who hasn't spoken since she saw her mother brutally murdered during a bank robbery. Can Sarah, John and their two daughters overcome their pasts and find happiness together?
Very unimaginative, repetitive storytelling, and obviously poor, (if any) background research. One example of absurdity: There's a picture window in the bedroom, and a walk in closet with a door,, on a ranch in Colorado in the 1800s? Another example, after learning that Sarah only had one sexual experience which caused her pregnancy with MaryAnn, John tells Sarah. "Oh. That's why you're so tight. You're still almost a virgin." Umm, yeah? After child birth? I'm sure there's a plethora more to be found, if the reader can endure painfully trudging beyond the first 80 pages. I myself didn't bother.
A few writing courses would be useful, even a workshop on how to write a GOOD novel for this writer.

The sentence structure and composition are both immature and childish in form. People say that everyone has a story to tell. The problem is they do not all have the skill.
