Publisher's Summary

1887. Debutante Julia Crawford endures a lifetime of subtle ridicule as the plump, silly daughter of a premiere Boston family. Julia strikes out on her own to gain independence, traveling to the Midwest to marry an aging shopkeeper and care for his mother. Julia finds her new home rough and uncivilized after the sophistication of a big city, while closely held secrets threaten to ruin Julia's one chance at love.
Jake Shelling was 16 and grew up quick when his parents died from influenza on the South Dakota prairie. Left with a half-cleared farm and two young sisters, he spent little time on his own needs... till now. At 35, he figured it was high time to have some sons and a mail order bride would suit him just fine. No expectations of love, just a helpmate from sturdy stock, ready for farm life.
Will fate and chance play a trick on Julia and Jake?

Unique Twist to Mail Order Bride Books

I've enjoyed many Mail Order Bride books, but Holly Bush has written one of the best I have read/listen to.

It has a fresh approach with some surprises along the way. With so much being said in the introduction of the book I will say no more, not wanting to spoil it for readers.

I highly recommend listening to "Train Station Bride"; it is well worth a credit, or paying the purchase price.

Short, Sweet Historic Romance

Train Station Bride is a short, sweet, western historic romance. Although I felt certain of a happy ending, there were several twists and turns along the way. In a few cases I felt like some of the events were a bit unbelievable but all in all it is a very enjoyable story which won’t disappoint.

I received the Audible version of this book in exchange for an honest review and it was a pleasure to listen to this story. The book is narrated by Meghan Kelly and she does a fabulous job. She does just the right amount of voice changing so it is a very pleasurable listen.

If you enjoy light, historic romances, you will love this book!
