Fortunately for Cora, she has some money and opens her own dress shop, something she has long dreamed about doing. She also has Nellie nearby and their friendship grows and grows. Her first date with Henry turns out to be a fiasco. Henry takes her to a sailor bar and reveals his mother lives with him. Neither of these things endears him to her. The man she wrote to is not the man she met in person. On the other hand, Asa is always there for her declaring his love and begging for forgiveness. He promises he would never leave her again. Cora still has to learn to trust him.
She also is unsure of her feelings for Asa and tries to concentrate all her efforts on her new shop. What happens between the four of them is something I will not divulge but it makes for a very exciting read.
I loved the first two books in this series, and this one was no exception. I loved the fact that in each book we are brought up to date on the other mail-order brides. The books do not have to be read in order, but you would definitely be losing out on some very romantic stories.

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.
