Mail Order Lorena

Mail Order Lorena

Trusting the acceptable wrong man led to the ruin of her life and self-respect.
Can trusting the unacceptable right man return to her what was lost?

The man who promised to provide and protect left Lorena Mayfield to do the providing and protecting. She went from being the daughter of a respected Little Rock, Arkansas clergyman and widow of a fallen Confederate officer to living a “fate worse than death.” Is there a way to escape the life in which she finds herself trapped and still protect the only person left to her she dearly loves?

Eustace Cantrell lost his Georgia home, his livelihood, and his family during the American Civil War. To make matters worse, he fought for the losing side. First hired as a low-paid stock tender for the Butterfield Overland Despatch stagecoach company, he now has a chance at managing his own station. His dilemma is, Ellsworth Station in Kansas is a home station. It is to be run by a family, not by a single, hardened combat veteran who feels nothing for anyone, least of all himself.

Lorena needs protection from her late husband’s family so she can reclaim her own. Eustace needs restoration of his soul. Can each of them escape their pasts and together find their future?

Please look for my other two books in the Widows, Brides & Secret Babies series, Mail Order Roslyn (available now) and Mail Order Penelope (available August 14, 2020). Although each story is written as a stand-alone book, the three stories are related. Part or all of them involve the stagecoaches and stations on the Kansas frontier in 1865 through 1867.
