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?
is a collaboration of multiple authors.
The town of Jubilee Springs started as a mining town in Bower, Colorado, but women were scarce, so the town's attorney ordered a mail order bride.
A Novella, approximately 142 pages, but those pages are packed full of a forever kind of love, which he found unacceptable and pushed her aside. Now she has no where to go, what will she do? Despair and emotions are her only friends.
This is the journey of Brigid Belham, who gets caught in a rain storm and
Livingstone Quinn, a hermit who only wishes for peace and quiet.
An arrogant attorney, a mail order bride, a hermit, and a town that will not hire a women, makes HOME TO ROOST some exciting reading. I was glued to the pages of Brigid and Livingstone's story, as they make sense of their feelings, face Brigid's possible ruined reputation, her acceptance in town and the danger that lurks. HOME TO ROOST is a story of longing to belong somewhere, finding love, peace, acceptance and a place to call home.
Well written with engaging and an interesting cast of characters. Steady paced. The plot was well thought out and excuted. Although, a Novella, and a quick read, Ms. Torres manages to reward readers with a fantastic read, where nothings left out of a remarkable story of love, acceptance, healing, and finding a HEA. Oh and the animals added a perfect mix in the story. You couldn't help but laugh at their antics.
Brigid and Livingston are a unique couple but find they have much in common.
Once again, Ms. Torres has written a story that will capture your heart and cause you to fly away to another time, place where women were not valued except as property, to some men anyway, but not all. HOME TO ROOST is a no brainer, it's a must read. Fans of clean, sweet, historical western romance are sure to enjoy HOME TO ROOST. If you're not a fan of sweet romance, give it a try, I think your enjoy your time in Bower, Colorado and Jubilee Springs. I look forward to going back soon. As the saying goes "ya'll come back now". I intend to, soon! Well done!!
