A sweet historical romance set in 1887.
Gabriel Shepard has secretly loved Iva Mae Paulson for years, but has been too shy to court her. But when Iva Mae announces at a New Year’s Eve party that her 1887 resolution is to find a groom, Gabe must decide if he’s ready to lose her to another man, or step out of his saddle shop to pursue her.
Iva Mae Paulson loves teaching children but after six years, she wants her own family instead. Since her choice of husband won’t take the first step, she’ll set her own destiny by signing up to become a mail-order bride.
Help and hindrance by family and friends makes this a comical trip down the church aisle for this couple.
