Kat and Nell Sinclair are headed west to Cripple Creek, Colorado, to start new lives as mail-order brides. But when they disembark at the train depot, neither fiance awaits them! When the well-bred sisters find themselves unexpectedly alone in a wild frontier town, will they give up on their hope for true love? 320 pages, softcover from Waterbrook.
Kat and Nell Sinclair are headed westaway from the manicured lawns of Maine to the boisterous, booming mining town of Cripple Creek, Colorado to start new lives for themselves as mail-order brides.
Aboard the train, romantic dreamer Nell carries a photo of her intended close to her heart and imagines an exciting and love-filled future, while her pragmatic older sister Kat resigns herself to marriage as a duty, not a delight.
But when the ladies disembark at the train depot, neither fiancé Patrick Maloney or Judson Archer awaits them with open arms. The well-bred Sinclair sisters find themselves unexpectedly alone in the wild, frontier towna place where fire threatens to reduce the buildings to rubble, the working women strut the streets, rogues will gamble for the shoes on ones feet, and Gods grace is found amongst the most unlikely of folks.
Two missing misters,
A shocking welcome to the wild west that leaves both Kat and Nell Sinclair questioning their dreams­ and the hope for true love.
