Pass Me Not: Hymns of the West Novella (Hymns of the West Novellas Book 2) by Faith Blum


I’ve always found  mail order bride books to be interesting. Reading the how come and whys that a person would resort to this type of marriage.  This short novella is about  Timothy O’Riordan, who after his parents deaths, has the sole  responsibility of rearing his 12 year old sister who has become a tomboy since her parents death.  Timothy is quickly running out of options and ideas.  Louise keeps running off every housekeeper he hires. And after losing five housekeepers in about a year he is running out of people to hire. But while looking in the paper he catches sight of a mail order bride ad. If he had a wife she couldn’t leave, could she?   The ad states that she also has a younger sister to care for who is 5 years old.  Is this the answer to his situation?  When Abigail agrees to marry Timothy and move from Virginia to Texas along with her little sister, It seems that Louise is not adverse to the marrying arrangement.  This is a beautiful story of how they connect emotionally and become a family, despite all the problems they have to work through. I was gifted this book to read and review and it was my pleasure to do so.
