This novel is based on the idea of "mail order brides." Elizabeth escapes one arranged marriage, only to fall right into another one. She started out as a feisty woman, but sadly assumed the role of the obedient wife and mother by end of the book. It was still a fun read, very sweet. ( )

Fleeing an arranged marriage, debutante Elizabeth Manning exchanges places with a mail-order bride bound for New Harmony, Iowa. Life on the frontier can't be worse than forced wedlock to pay her father's gambling debts. But Ted Logan's rustic lifestyle and rambunctious children prove to be more of a challenge than Elizabeth expects. She doesn't know how to be a mother or a wife. She doesn't even know how to tell Ted the truth about her past--especially as her feelings for him grow. Little does she know, Ted's hiding secrets of his own, and when their pasts collide, there's more than one heart at stake.
