Mail Order Holiday Brides

Mail Order Holiday Brides by Jillian Hart and Janet Tronstad
If you haven’t added this to your holiday reading, you should!!  Wonderful read! Great stories!
I loved the characters. Well written plot. I love the idea of Christmas brides, and it keeps you
 wondering if the poor ladies will end up married or homeless and  on the streets.
