Mail Order Bride: The Crippled Bride and The Ambitious Miner (Mail Order Brides of Western Romance Book1, #1) by Faye Sonja

It's 1849, the beginning of the California gold rush, and in this book, opposites attract, when Ava, the crippled daughter of a politician, flees to the wild land of Gold Creek, to marry wild & ambitious miner, Jackson.  

Ava hated politician! What will happen when Ava discovers that her new husband has political ambitions, an arrogant streak, and a struggling gold mine?

Can a man with ambition and power such as Jackson ever learn to accept anything less than perfect?

Gold Creek is nothing like Ava ever imagined. Wild, unruly, the town matches her new husband.

Ava is thirty-one, beautiful and brave, but with a heartbreaking past, and a crippling injury.

She's always had everything she needed financially, but now this has CHANGED.

She has lost everything . . . . .

 Crippled Ava and her Ma have been thrown out onto the street by her cruel father- a politician! They have no way of survival. She needs to make a plan, to save them both from poverty, from a life begging on the street.

Gold Creek . . . and Jackson Abrams, are her ONLY option.

When events seem desperate, Ava makes a strong, desperate decision: to travel to the other side of the country to marry a man she has never met. Jackson promises that his gold mine can provide for him, Ava, and her struggling mama.

Join Ava on her journey cross-country to Gold Creek, where she meets the powerful and devastatingly handsome Jackson Abrams, who has the love and respect of the town, but hidden secrets, and a blind spot when it comes to love and business. He has a picture-perfect vision for his life, and Ava - with her crippling injury - worries that he can't see past the imperfections.

“Take the journey with Ava and Jackson, as they learn to open up, love, trust in God's plan, and to see the beauty in imperfection. “

Simple read

Many holes in the plot and places where "time skips" were not properly identified or well written. Very little shown character development- It's like the reader is just supposed to assume the characters changed or were never thinking what seemed to be a logical conclusions to the reader. The writer constantly uses the same words- not a bad thing entirely but leaves the reader feeling like they already read this page or chapter. Main Character randomly becomes spiritual- Leaving reader confused by the amount of religious talk towards the end of the story. Book leaves no lasting impression- It's pretty boring and you really just force yourself to finish it but if you want a slightly below average book and a quick read. Go for it. ~~SMALL SEMI SPOILER~~ It's confusing when the main charter says "I have money and sent for your mom" and then in the next chapter says "Now we can finally send for your mom" after they find "money" and no one addresses either statement.

This has to be the worst book I have forced myself to read. This is a 5th grade level and maybe lower. Author needs a different job. Kathy

It's not just the simplistic language , it's also the grammar and usage of the same word to explain the word . 60 pages of preachy religious boring material. Don't bother!
