Flora Wright’s mother has always wanted to be part of Boston’s elite, and is wiling to stoop to any measure to make it happen – even promise her 16-year-old daughter’s hand to Archibald Channing, a vile old man of questionable morals.
When Flora flees after uncovering Archibald’s illegal dealings, she is taken under the caring wing of the courageous widow, Edna White.
When Edna dies, her will provides for Flora in a most unexpected way. Flora must travel West with her two friends, Erin and Bernice to meet a man of Edna’s choosing whom she is asked to marry.
Flora fears that her proposed husband wants nothing more than to confine her to a life of domestic drudgery, whilst he is concerned that this intelligent city girl considers him an ignorant country hick. Only the arrival of an unwelcome visitor in Bridge Creek opens their eyes to see beyond their fears and realize how blessed they are to have each other.
The Mail Order Brides of Bridge Creek follows the unexpected journey of Erin Hathaway, Bernice Hallstead and Flora Wright, who are recused from Boston’s criminal underworld by a kind and courageous woman named Edna White. Edna sends the young ladies West to marry strong faithful men whom she knows will properly care for her wards. Each book is a complete story of one of our Bridge Creek brides.
