Train to Colorado by Florence Linnington
A journey into the unknown is a journey to become a mail order bride.
Margaret Leeds has no idea what a mail order bride is before her stepfather informs her that she is to leave for Colorado territory to marry a stranger.
On her stepfather’s insistence that Margaret leave the house and stop draining the family’s resources, Margaret embarks on a long and grueling journey into the west to marry an unknown man.
There’s a problem, however. The man is already married.
Now, Margaret finds herself stranded in a small town of Stillwater, and her permanent limp leaves her struggling to find work.
Until she meets the gruff sheriff and immediately dislikes him.
Sheriff William has a kind word for everyone. Everyone except Margaret. But his actions seem to tell a different story.
Struggling to find her place in the world and fighting against her conflicting feeling for the sheriff, Margaret discovers how difficult life in the mountains can truly be. And, when a forest fire threatens the safety of all those she holds dear, Margaret finally discovers William’s true nature, as well as her own.
Neither the land nor the people in Stillwater, Colorado are exactly what they seem.
