Patience Callahan is twenty-five and fast becoming an old maid. But she’s spent most of her life dreaming over romantic European literature and wants a dashing d’Artagnan, not a bookish Bob Cratchit. Alas, the Colorado town of Gilman is chock-full of Cratchit’s without a d’Artagnan in sight. Peter Foote, the general store owner, has been in love with Patience for seven years. But every time he’s on the verge of proposing, she cuts him off; he can only imagine on purpose. This time though, dadburn it, he’s going to go through with it. Ring in hand, he’s moments from touching knee to floor, when Patience pulls out a list of mail-order bride advertisements and declares her intention to marry a backwoods stranger, on Christmas Day. Peter has two weeks to change her mind.
Five Boundless Stars
Patience has decided to answer a call for a mail order bride and get married to a stranger. Peter has loved her for years and sees this as a horrible thing. Kitty, the younger sister of Patience, and Peter work together to push Patience in the path of Peter. When the man she is supposed to marry shows up in town the worst happens. Will Patience stick with her stranger beau or will Peter finally win her over? One word that came to my mind while reading this was FUN. This story is very lighthearted and fun to read. The antics that these people go through to get to Patience are just so cute and funny. I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick, well written, and light read. I would definitely recommend this to others.
