I've said it before, and I'll continue to say it. I love all of this author's books, but there is something so special about her sweet Westerns that takes me on a journey in time and makes me wish I could sojourn there for a little longer. She had an acute knowledge of the era and pours so much of her heart into each of these stories, that I can imagine even the minutest details of each scene. As always, I am looking forward to the next adventure in Jubilee Springs.
In this story, the town’s attorney, Appleton Winslet, sends off for his own bride with high requirements wanting a lady of looks, refinement, and to have manners and social skills. When he meets his intended, Brigid Bellham, he is insulting, rude, and accuses her of deceit and tells her that he would not marry her.
The plot will have Brigid Bellham arriving in the town of Jubilee Springs by train and not to be met by her intended groom, but Mr. Howard of the boarding house. When Appleton Winslet does come to see her the next day, he is rude and insulting and withdraws his offer of marriage. Now Brigid is without a home, no way to return to her father’s home, and needing a job to support herself. When her last option of working keeping books at the mine is declined, she will take a walk in the forest to try and clear her head and make plans, become lost, get caught in a heavy rainstorm, and literally fall at the feet of Livingstone Quinn.
Livingstone is a recluse, living far from town with his animals. He delivers his eggs before dawn and returns to his quite self-made world. He is exceptionally large, and most people are frightened by his size When he rescues Brigid, she is a tall woman, and doesn’t act afraid of him. Always the gentlemen, he will give her the use of the house and take the barn. Caught by a swollen river, with nothing but work and time, they will get to know each other, and before long, Brigid will be making friends with his animals and learning how to do chores like gathering eggs.
What happens when the river recedes, and he can safely return her back to town? A public confrontation will attempt to sully her reputation and now how will she ever be able to remain in Jubilee Springs? The story is a sweet, clean historical mail order bride book that offers a glimpse of attitudes about a woman working a job in a man’s world, and even wearing men’s clothing. With the help of farm yard animals can two people who come from different lifestyles find their happily ever after?
Livingstone Quinn lives the life of a hermit on his homestead outside of Bowers, delivering his eggs at dawn’s early night. When a wet, muddy and very lost Brigid lands at his feet, Quinn gives her food, shelter and dry clothes. Little did he know he would also give her his heart!
Although a story set in the “simpler” times, it deals with some very complex issues. I loved how Brigid and Quinn slowly fell for one another. It was done with such a softness, like rays of sunshine breaking through the clouds -I really felt the warmth of it! Ms. Torres’ writing is always so perfect, both in style and tone. And I loved the added touch of “Down” and the girls - the best secondary characters for our lovebirds. I cannot wait for the next story in the Bowers, Colorado series.
