PERFECTLY MATCHED by Maggie Brendan
Anna Olsen knows it's time to leave her sister's increasingly crowded house and start a life of her own. Following both sisters' examples, she becomes a mail-order bride, and after a short correspondence with clock maker and jeweler Edward Parker, she moves to Denver to become his wife.
Almost immediately it's painfully apparent that Anna and Edward are very different. Anna is a free spirit who would rather be painting and enjoying the company of friends than cleaning house. Edward is a consummate perfectionist who, on their wedding day, hands Anna a list of chores that need to be done around the house daily.
Can this mismatched couple see past their differences to a harmonious future? Or will their disparate passions create obstacles neither is willing to surmount?
“Available October 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
If you like stories about mail order brides, this is the book to read. It's entertaining and not like your typical fall in love and marry. This is the story of Anna and Edward, two people who are very different and fear their marriage will not survive because of these differences.
After admitting their fears to one another they resolve to make things work, the trials they face aren't easy but they're determined. If only people in today's world would take their vows seriously as these two did there would be a lot less divorce.
I received a copy of this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
