When she decided time become a mail order bride,she went to her uncle who helped her get to Connecticut without her aunt knowing.
What comes next is daunting for our young lady....
I believe you will like this author and the series. I plan on getting all of them.
But ... whose silly idea was it to write frontier stories about places that definitely were not on the frontier in the post-Civil War U.S.? Real Connecticut place names are used, but the geographical relationships are totally out of whack, and the geology doesn't belong anywhere in Connecticut. This seems odd for an author whose bio says she prides herself on historical accuracy. Pick this story up and plunk it down somewhere in the real West, and it would make sense.
I'm also disappointed that no one with a good sense of grammar or punctuation seems to have proofread this. I'd be embarrassed to have my name on this in its present state.
Sorry, there was nothing in this book half as believable as in any vampire book with dragons, time travel, and wizards. If there are going to be books about the other fifty states, the author can just change a few names and the descriptions would fit just as well as this fits post-Civil War Connecticut.

Edwina aka Eddy, was desperate to leave Boston as her aunt disliked her immensely and was trying to force her to marry a young man, from a well-to-do Boston family, who was absolutely not who she wanted to be with. But Eddy’s aunt was threatening to throw her out of the house if she didn’t accept the proposal. With no other options, she decided the best course of action would be to become a mail-order bride.
Josh is used to his sister meddling in his life, especially since they are the only blood family left alive. But after being deceived by a woman, he is content to remain a bachelor for the rest of his life. But he soon learns that his sister corresponded to get him a mail-order bride. He’s a gentleman, so he doesn’t send her back immediately, but he’s going to show her just how tough of a life he lives up in the mountains.
I really liked that Eddy was not intimidated and this was the type of life she preferred. I liked that she had useful skills that she learned as a young girl with her dad and continued practicing with her uncle until she left. I also like the drama and how she was able to take care of herself, but was able to see through Josh’s toughness and actually fell in love with him.
As near as I could tell, Eddy had no connection to the Brow Textile Mill like many of the other books in this series. Not that that is a requirement, just a notation.
