Product details

"Miriam Bricks arrives in Savage Wells thinking she is accepting a job as a nurse. Dr. Gideon MacNamara thinks Miriam is coming to be his wife. Despite the misunderstanding, they learn to work together as a team to help the sick and injured. As their relationship grows into something deeper, Miriam's secrets may take away their dreams"--Provided by publisher. Wyoming Territory, 1876

As the only doctor in the frontier town of Savage Wells, Gideon MacNamara knows his prospects for a bride are limited. The womenfolk in town are either too young, too old, or already spoken for. So, being a practical man, he decides to take advantage of the matchmaking service of the day--mail-order brides--and sends away for a woman with nursing experience.

When Miriam steps off the stagecoach in Savage Wells, she sees a bright future in front of her. But when the town--and Gideon--meets her, ready for a wedding, her excitement quickly turns to horror. Somehow Dr. MacNamara's message had gotten turned around. He didn't want a nurse, he wanted a wife. When she refuses to marry him, she finds herself stranded in Savage Wells with some very unhappy townspeople.

But Gideon is not like the other men Miriam has met. Embarrassed by the misunderstanding, he offers her a job, and the two begin an awkward--and often humorous--dance of getting to know each other as they work to care for the people of their town. Romance blossoms between the two, but when a former medical associate of Miriam's arrives in town, Gideon and the other townsfolk must rally around Miriam to protect her from a dangerous fate. Gideon and Miriam must decide if they are willing to risk their hearts for each other even as buried secrets are brought to light.

    From the beginning to the end this book pulled me in, and had me cringing at the injustice that was perpetrated at the time. Once you find out why Miriam is in Savage Wells and why she won't marry Gideon you champion her cause. Will she win this town over? Will the evil that is brought on her by the law at that time win? I know I was starting to get very angry at the system, but so many souls were lost here, and this went on way into the late 1900's. There are some really warmhearted events here, and others will rip your heart out, and you will worry about this town losing its children. Wow! As you can see there is a lot going on here, and innocent telegram has the ability to destroy lives. A quick page-tuner, that will make you think! I re...
