Publisher's Summary

The Western Mail Order Bride: Jordyn's Reluctant New Love is the emotional story of a woman who starts out by lying when she begins a correspondence with a rancher in Oregon who has advertised for a mail order bride. All she wants to do is get out west, learn how to run a ranch, then own one herself - just like she and her now deceased father had planned. Under other deceptions she gets a free boat ride out to the west coast from a mail order bride company sending one hundred women in search of husbands. When she arrives and attends the meeting where the men and women get together, she looks for "her" man but cannot find him. With no other option she decides to take the leftovers and rides off in one coarse character's wagon. Things go rapidly downhill from there.

I'm Just Glad it Was Not Over 52 Minutes Long

"The Western Mail Order Bride" sounds like a 12 year old wrote it (one not bothered with research, geography or facts).

Blair (the rancher who advertised for a mail-order bride) first began falling in love with Jordyn's letters (her lies), then while she was sleeping. He must have really been lonely to fall in love with Jordyn (his mail-order bride) after she woke up, because who could love such a selfish, willful woman. Jordyn threw temper tantrums, and could care less about Blair's needs or wants.

The author is not interested in anything related to reality--Jordyn who lives in New York, writes a letter to Blair in Oregon, and receives a response from him a WEEK after posting her letter ..... talk about pony EXPRESS!

I generously gave the narrator 3 stars, but couldn't go that far for such a nonsensical story.

I've listen to other short stories and recommended them, but I cannot recommend "The Western Mail Order Bride".
