Jane vies for the attention of her workaholic husband who is bent on saving his ranch even if it means losing love. Gwendolyn’s would-be husband dies, leaving her to the will of another man. And Emmeline’s knight-in-shining-armor herds sheep instead of cattle. Will love prevail, or will their journeys have not so happy endings?

Four sisters desperate to marry yet be close together come to Wyoming thinking that neighbors would be just across the field. As each bride is dropped off to their perspective husbands, these mail order brides learn how distant the miles can be. Instilled with the literature of the ages, knights and armor are what they k ow from their late father's teaching. Evelyn lands with Gareth. Each has their secrets. Namely a child each, that the other does not know about. It is curious as to how these families meld. Gwendolyn comes to Matt, but it is soon obvious that he has been duped by his late grandfather. The only one who knows she is coming is his wheelchair bound sister Betsy. He refuses to marry her but allows her to stay on a trial basis with Betsy as chaperone. Matt has his demons and trust issues. It's good to read how these are resolved. Jane hasn't been at Harrison's an hour after their vows are said when he goes off to work. Being a rancher he must go with his cattle for round...
Before I begin I want to say that on other books (I have not looked to see this one) have false (possibly) paid positive reviews. I I now take them with a larger grain of salt than I did before. I bought this book before I came to see this on other books.
I like my how-to type books to learn other things. I review books I am an expert at to warn others about the good or bad based on my knowledge.
But I have always loved historical romance books with a passion. Particularly the 1800's and mail order brides are just one of the types that I love. This book is well written, but then I am not the grammar police so unless its really backwards or wrong it doesn't bother me. But I don't remember anything really sticking out as wrong if you are looking for that info.
While this is a 4 in 1 book it really reads as a single book. Telling the story of each sister with an ending. I love endings where you can just sit back and sigh with knowing not just...
I can't believe that I can rank four such different stories as equally engaging and enjoyable. Ms. Vetsch has a gift for wrapping her stories in a warmth that leaves you with a satisfied sigh when you finish the last page.
