Overview

It's 1853, in Wild West Utah, when Zelda, an orphan is forced into a life of servitude, is sold and abandoned in the town of Thornward, where she is forced to marry artist and immigrant Charles, a man who had won her in a poker game.

Thornward is a true Wild West town. Men fight, gamble to earn money, and treat women as if they were property. But this sort of treatment is all Zelda has ever known.

What happens when Zelda discovers that the man she has been sold to is a gambler, a sweet-talker, and that he is no better than the men she knew from the brothel?

Zelda has a past that almost broke her.

Growing up as an orphan on the streets, all she knows are two things: POVERTY and STRUGGLE!

Forced to work in a brothel under the New Orleans gambling den manager Gus, Zelda has almost lost all hope of freedom.

When all things seemed so hopeless, one day something good happened- she was set FREE.

Well… things are not quite as simple as they seem.

What happened when Zelda discovered the truth that she was dumped on Charles, an Italian immigrant who won her in a poker tournament?

Charles seems kind, romantic, and gentle. But Zelda is not used to being treated well. She doesn't trust Charles, and vows to escape…

Can Zelda learn to accept love? To believe that Charles could really find her beautiful?

What will happen when Charles discovers the truth about Zelda's past?

“Take the journey with Zelda and Charles as they begin to scratch surface, and with God's help, find love together…”

Faye Sonja is a multi-voiced writer who aspires to use different voices in telling her stories, seeing characters coming alive through the multi-faceted writing styles give her great satisfaction.

As a young girl, Faye Sonja has been fascinated with stories of the Old West, especially the theme of Mail Order Bride where a woman will find the courage to leave her homeland, take the plunge to seek out the love of her life out there in the unknown land.

Such an act requires bravery, such an act requires faith. It takes a woman with strong Christian faith to step out on such a pursuit for her love.

It is Faye's desire that readers will once again have the courage to believe in love again from reading her books, to be inspired through the characters in her story who through perseverance, in the face of obstacles, overcame the hurdles using that simple faith and belief of theirs.
