A Christian Historical Western Mail-Order Bride Romance

by Lisa Prysock

The Parson's Bride

After serving in the Civil War as part of a Minnesota infantry regiment, Zachary feels compelled to head further west to follow the call of God tugging on his heart. He has finally completed correspondence school and earned a certificate to become a preacher. He accepts a minister’s position in the small town of Blossom in Dakota Territory, but there’s a catch. The church board requires him to become married, and a mail-order bride soon becomes the remedy.

When his bride arrives by train from Ohio along with the spring blooms, he has no idea so much trouble can exist in such a pretty package. Miss Darcy Chenowyth takes his breath away with her good looks. However, she can barely cook or clean, and finding peace and tranquility to study his sermons proves hard won, if not scarce, after her arrival.

When a small town printing press, a boy named Charlie, and the mysterious Old Man Brompton compound their challenges, Zach wonders what else could possibly go wrong.
