Thank you for writing this book
Why do we humans tend to think the worse of ourselves? We think no one could love us because we are not perfect. Our perception of ourselves is over critical I do believe.
Richard thought he was unlovable due to his outer scars from the fire he was in trying to save his first wife. Thank goodness India saw the true man inside. I was so happy when they finally admitted that they loved each other.
You did a fantastic job of this story Ashley.
To recap, India lost her job when her textile factory burned down (by its owner to cover up his embezzling) and with no local jobs, she embarked on being a mail order bride to a man in South Bend Indiana. Blake is a widower with two young children, whose wife perished in a fire and he himself suffered burns when he tried to rescue her. He did not expect to ever love again, but his children need a mother, and he is rich, one of the few coachbuilders with national reputation. India arrived to find the town welcome, except for Blake's mother Kay, who had always hoped for her son to fall in love with her best friend's daughter, Olivia (whom Blake cannot stand). And Olivia is not beyond trying to seduce a married man, not that India would have given up on Blake in any case... As the two slowly discovered that both are drawn to doing charity work around town (he being a secret santa, she started a pantry for the poor in the church), Blake's defenses started melting away...
While the ending is a foregone conclusion, there really isn't much keeping the couple apart other than a LOT of self-inadequacies and some misunderstandings that ballooned into something more. Still, it was rather enjoyable to read
She answers an ad for mail a order bride from Richard Blake.
He's a widowed man with 7 year old daughter Julia & 3 year son Sammy. Their mother died 6 months ago in a fire. He is scarred from trying to save Amy. They live in South Bend Indiana. He's wealthy and kind man, but wants the marriage to be in name only.
He writes to her that he has business in two weeks and will come by to pick her up. If they agree they'll be married in the morning. Then catch the noon time train to go to South Bend.
There so much more to this story you need to read it. I enjoyed this book very much.
