Crawford Family Series: Book 1 - 1887 Debutante, Julia Crawford endures a lifetime of subtle ridicule as the plump, silly daughter of a premiere Boston family.

Julia finds her new home rough and uncivilized after the sophistication of a big city, while closely held secrets threaten to ruin Julia’s one chance at love.
Jake Shelling was sixteen and grew up quick when his parents died from influenza on the South Dakota prairie. Left with a half-cleared farm and two young sisters, he spent little time on his own needs . . . until now. At thirty-five, he figured it was high time to have some sons and a mail order bride would suit him just fine. No expectations of love, just a helpmate from sturdy stock, ready for farm life.
Will fate and chance play a trick on Julia and Jake?

Jake has struggled to raise his two younger sisters from an early age and now owns a farm in South Dakota. Now that they are happily settled, it is his time to look for a wife. How could things go wrong?
I enjoyed this entertaining story. The interaction between the main and secondary characters was well written, especially the parts where it is needed to see a point of view through someone else's eyes.
The story is set in the 1800's and without giving too much away it is about one of many daughters but this one doesn't meet her mother's expectations! The mother is something else which you will find out when you read it.
The chap had written to a woman for some time and arranged to meet and marry her - meanwhile the girl had written to another man as she was running away from her family and had also arranged to meet him and yes to marry him however, these two meet at the train station and get married!
He kinda has mixed feelings when he finds out the mistake and says some hurtful things which ends up with her going home to face the wrath of her family. She has a heartbreaking secret which I am not going to give away.
This book is a must read, it had me anxious and a bit weepy too.
