It all started when the postman found an old letter stuck down in the bottom of a mail bag that had been shoved back in a desk drawer that hadn't been used since the early fifties. Since it had her grandfather's return address, the mailman brought it back to him. And that's when he made Emily promise she'd take the letters, all of them, to Clarice.
Clarice might not be the other woman, just the "before" woman, but grandparents weren't supposed to have ever loved anyone but each.
He's got mail...and he doesn't even want to hear about it. Greg Adams was on a trip to buy a bull when he found out his Grandmother had installed Emily on their ranch as her assistant. He doesn't quite buy the story of his grandmother as a mail-order bride but he decides to humor the ladies while he checks into it. Emily might have more up her sleeve than delivering lost letters to his grandmother. If so, Greg will personally escort her cute little fanny right off of his ranch.
A lost letter...meant a lost love for Clarice, but two generations later, maybe it's not too late for that letter to work magic.
From letters to texting and back again...Greg and Emily are about to find that that lost art of letter writing can be very romantic.
This book has a very special place in my heart. About fifty years ago my best friend, Karen Garrison, was dating a boy who was in the Army. He was sent to
In one of her letters he sent a picture of a group of several of his new friends and I picked out the one I wanted. She got the address from her boyfriend and I wrote the first letter. Brazen hussy, I was even back then. About a year later she received an engagement ring in the mail and her boyfriend came home for a couple of weeks. They got married and she went back to
Meanwhile, I’m still writing to the fellow I picked out in the picture and another year goes by. One day a lovely proposal and an engagement ring came in the mail. I got on a Greyhound bus and went to
So now when people say they have found this brand new dating program on the Internet I just smile. Husband and I were the prototypes for that program! And I have a whole big stack of letters plus a proposal right there on paper to prove it.
My story is different than Emily Cooper's, in The Cowboy’s Mail Order Bride. But if that last letter hadn't arrived in Oklahoma from Germany and it wasn't found until my grandson or granddaughter found it not long before the end of my days, it could have read something like this book.
Emily is on a mission and well, a can of worms is opened up. Now she’s taken the letters home to
Enjoy the ride! (Yes, that's Mr. B and a very sassy woman just before they married)
Now wouldn't it be something if men folks all over the world decide to lay down their phones and start writing letters!
