After her husband leaves her alone and jobless in post-Civil War New York City, Clara Bixby hatches a business plan to bring willing mail-order brides across the country to start a new life with the bachelors of Destination, Nebraska. Original. 50,000 first printing.
This story is was a nice break from modern times. The characters and plot were engaging. In some ways, for me, it was like a Little House on the Prairie episode for adults. I‘m glad I finally got around to reading this book!
