E. Ayers is a new author for me. I found her on Facebook as I was scanning the groups I'm in. Most likely I was posting about my books, but we won't go there. I love historical romance, always have an always will. So I decided to download A Rancher's Request. I'm glad I did.
This isn't your typical Mail Order Bride book. It's more a study of life for women in the 19th century. There are no shoot-em-ups. No bad guys. It's a quiet read, but that doesn't mean it's not a good and worthwhile book.
Duncan moved from South Carolina to Creed's Crossing. It's out West, Wyoming I think but don't quote me. Doesn't matter, it's out West. He has a farm but wants a wife. He contacts his father who writes a friend with an eligible daughter, Zadie.
Zadie's not thrilled with the idea of an arranged marriage and she struggles with accepting her father's will for her. I think many young women in past ages had this same struggle.
Just as they seem to be making headway to marriage a complication takes Zadie back home.
And that's all I'm going to give you of the story. I want you to head over to Amazon and either buy or KU download the book. It's very good. Ms. Ayers has done her research into the era. I'll be reading more of her books. You should too.
