Della (Cowboys and Debutantes: Historical Book 2) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Della will travel from New York to the Montana Territory to become the bride of a banker, Clement White, in the town of Livingston. It is a far cry from the lifestyle she was accustomed to. For Clement, he is hoping to have a partner, a helpmeet, someone to be able to make his life more pleasant. With Della, he gets a pampered girl who is clueless on how to run a home, cook, or clean.
The plot will have a very patient and compassioned man, Clement, married to Della, who must learn how to cook, clean, and run a home. Clement has a wonderful reputation among the townspeople, and slowly Della will learn that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to her new husband. She also makes friends with some of the ladies that are looked down upon by some of the ladies of the church. These friendships will become her lifeline in her new hometown.
What had started out as a disaster for the Stout family, will become a blessing in disguise for Della as she learns that she is right where she needs to be with her husband and future. The story is a clean historical western.
Della and her two sisters are sent West to become mail order brides. Della ends up in the mining town of Livingston, Montana Territory. In muddy, messy Livingston, she has to adjust to her new life as the wife of an unsophisticated, but kind and well-liked, cowboy turned banker. At first, Della is unhappy and frustrated. She has to learn how to cook and clean house, something the servants took care of in her pampered previous life. She also learns to accept and make friends with people who would be considered unacceptable to and who would be snubbed by her New York City family and friends.
When her family's fortune is restored, Della has to make a choice. Will she return to her privileged life in New York City or stay in the mining town with the man she has learned to love?
They've been scattered to the four winds, from New York City to Oregan, Montana, and California.
One of them marries a hog farmer (I surprisingly also find out there's a difference between a hog & pig), another general store owner who's also a cowboy and a green thumb;
and am halfway through I think 3rd or 4th book already in one day, family is restored but it's really sad they all live so far away.
Fanny changed into a better person after living in poverty.
I totally recommended this series historical bride romance lovers. Other authors as great as Ms V.Holt are Kirsten Osborne, Cathy Marie Hake, Kit Morgan, and Mary Connealy.
I look forward to the upcoming books in this series - both those with historical and contemporary settings.
