MAIL ORDER COWBOY
MAIL ORDER COWBOY (4) by Laurie Kingery: Simpson Creek, Texas, 1865: Millicent Matthews places a newspaper ad for mail-order men so the town’s single women have the same chance at finding a husband. Nicholas Brookfield has an uncanny need to search and locate the writer of the letter he reads in the paper. Millicent thought the men would write first, not just show up like Nicholas! When Indians threaten the town, they lean on each other to save themselves and the townsfolk. This story is a treat and breaths new life to an old plotline. Kingery turns something old into something new and refreshing.
