Rebecca Sullivan’s father thought she was a hoyden and was forever chastising her to be “a proper lady”. Becky liked to ride bareback; she was a crack shot and did things no respectful lady would do. When her love Jack returned from the war, married to a proper southern lady, Becky decided that she would be more attractive to men if she were a proper lady. She also decided that she could not stay in the same town with Jack and his new wife especially since she was expecting. When she found out something that her parents has hidden from her all her life she decided to answer an ad to be a mail-order bride. Trouble was, her intended groom didn’t know she was coming and wasn’t in the market. “The Unexpected Bride” by Lena Goldfinch is the name of this story. It is labeled as a “sweet historical romance” and that it is.
I enjoyed this book as a light read and would recommend it as a very relaxing book.
