Scarred Mail Order Bride
and her Lonely Bachelor"
by Florence Linnington

Leanne Robinson had almost completely given up hope of having any sort of a happy life. She had been left permanently scarred and injured in the fire that took the life of her father, and things seem to have gone downhill from there. She had been working as a nanny for a family that did not appreciate her nor did they treat her well. But when she received a letter from the mail order bride company that she had placed an ad with, she begins to once again have hope that things are finally looking up.

Unfortunately, the letter she received appears to have been lost in the mail for the past six months. Could the man who had written her possibly still be in need of a wife? And if she shows up and he’s no longer interested, what will she do then? She doesn’t have an answer to that question, but she feels it is a risk worth taking.

This was the story of Theo and Leanne. I enjoyed watching the two of them overcome a number of problems as they are trying to find a way to deal with more than a few losses that each has experienced in their lives. Both of them may have started out as “broken”, but with a little help they just might be able to help each other overcome their own previous tragedies and find a new way to move forward in life.

I enjoyed reading their stories a great deal. As with her previous books, Ms Linnington has woven a fascinating tale of two people who each need help, but who do not know how to ask for it, or even what it is that they are truly seeking.
