Sadie came from Germany to see a man. They immediately left for California. Conrad had already lost one wife, so Sadie was just his way of insuring he could claim a good portion of land. No love was to be involved there.

Very good

An orphan finds a home in America.

We are headed to California in 1852, and I enjoyed every minute of this book. Sadie is a strong woman that butted-heads with her new husband of convenience, Conrad Frazier. With her enthusiasm and caring soul, she began breaking down the walls of his heart and it was wonderful to read about. This book contains thoughtful prayers, kindness to others and searches for a fulfilling future. Thanks for a nice read.

I enjoyed this story. For Sadie she wanted to be loved, as she had been an orphan as a child. She was persistent in showing Conrad love from the beginning. Conrad has never trusted anyone, and has built a wall around his heart because no one has truly loved him. However, Conrad is always trying to protect Sadie, and Sadie has to learn to respect him. My favorite part is when Conrad finally reveals his true passion.

This book was very good. I enjoyed reading it. If you're looking for a light hearted, Christian, wagon train, mail order, romance this book would be a good choice.

I gave this book one star as opposed to the zero it deserves so it will show up on Amazon.

Conrad sent away for a mail order bride from Germany and pick Sadie. She showed up with all the hope and love she wanted to give to her new Austin. Unfortunately Conrad sent away for a wife of convenience little did Sadie know. Not only did he not want a love match he decided to be brusque, Rude and out and all disrespectful. At first sight of Sadie, he was very disappointed at the bride he got. Which totally confused me, because if it’s a marriage of convenience who cares what she looks like. If you’re only going to be router and bark instructions at her why is her looks important? I didn’t like this book at all. I love love mail order bride books, but I am so sick of these rude emotionally abusive men Who sendoff for wives , Only to treat them as if they murdered their dog. Yeah I read these reviews and it’s like this is such a beautiful story… No it wasn’t what is wrong with you people this man was cold, aloof and then when he’s ready to love her you’re like oh good this is so sweet now. No woman is it a multiple choice for a man. You can’t sit around and hope he picks her. He was a jerk. I am all about the rinse lather and repeat of mail order bride box, but when it comes to this trope it really gets under my skin. So out of the box and ridiculous. Not to mention she sounded goofy because no matter what he said she just smiled like a bobble head doll shaking my head. I really like Sadie but the author verse on making her sound mentally challenged. Who smiles that much when the man you married is a jerk. No one!
