The Indian's Bride: Mail Order Bride (Boulder Brides #4)
Fed up with a medical career that’s going nowhere, and no marriage prospects on the horizon, Elsa Briggs is ready for a change. Her opportunity arises when an unusual but highly intriguing proposition is mentioned at her weekly Women’s Society meeting.
The Women’s Society has received a letter from one of their missionary correspondents in the wilderness area of Colorado. An Indigenous member of their settlement, Tommy Deer Hunter, is looking for a bride, and though the Women’s Society strives for racial justice, the ladies are a bit surprised when Elsa blurts out, “I’ll do it.”
After all, the west is desperate for Christian settlers, especially women to marry and help tame the single men. It’s for the sake of the community, and Elsa’s become inspired by a sense of missionary duty – and the chance to marry a Native man.
Challenges arise daily as Elsa tries desperately to understand her prospective Ute mate. She wants to get to know the community and it’s needs, but he has other ideas in mind.
Will a bad mining accident help them realize they have more in common than they thought?
