Product Description

American Mail order brides of the West Series, historically inspired clean and wholesome novel romance.


Author Kat Carson!

San Francisco, California, 1861. Springtime.

(Based on the true story of Mary Ellen Pleasant)

This inspirational historical Wild West Romance series is about strong women on their quest to turn around their downtrodden situation, their triumphs of discovering real men and true love in the mid-and late 19th-century.

Mary Pleasant is the daughter of a slave family living in Monroe, Georgia. Everyone has been talking about the emancipation of the slaves, but when freedom finally comes, there is a lot of uncertainty about what the future holds. All that Mary knows for sure is that she is going to go West and she is determined to find a way to get there. After answering a "Brides Wanted" advertisement on the church notice board, Mary finds herself saying goodbye to her family, perhaps forever and boarding a train with four other young brides headed for an unknown future in San Francisco. Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell Mary that her husband-to-be, John Smart, is a white man. But Mary knows that faith and courage will see her through, and she is determined to be a success in this town.


John Smart is a handsome and successful businessman. Why has he taken a colored girl for a wife?

Can Mary's faith carry her through when she is accused of murder after a terrible accident?

Mary is a strong and determined girl. What happens when she finds the man who truly loves her?


Follow Mary and her friends on her story of heartbreak and happiness, of highs and lows, and of success and failure as she makes a new life for herself in San Francisco. Discover how she faces jealousy and discrimination but continues to hold her head high and never loses sight of her dreams. Keep step with Mary as she travels from the slave plantations of Georgia to the "Mystery House" and the biggest mansion that San Francisco has ever seen, finding true love and happiness along the way.


....“a story of hope, fear, romance, suspense and true love.”....

While this book is part of a romance series, it can definitely be read as a standalone book.
