"Would you have had the courage to be a Mail Order Bride?"
I have often wondered this myself and wished I could step back in time.
This desire has inspired me to write the Come-By-Chance Mail Order Bride series. In the first three books you'll meet Ruby, Emily and Violet.
Matrimonial Newsflash! It was such fun writing these three books, and other brides' stories are insisting upon being told. Some are old friends, some are new, but all are sure to be fun.So, coming soon will be the stories of Kate, Rose and Emmy-Lou.
Let me take you back to the 1880s - to a time of both true love and true adventure.
Juliet James writes feel-good stories that are easy reading, enjoyable, uplifting and fun.
She may not be the world's greatest author, but is definitely one of the luckiest, as she almost certainly has the nicest, most wonderful, supportive readers there are! .Thank you, you're the best.
