Unfortunately, Mrs. Mortimer had other ideas for Irene's future. When Irene's eighteenth birthday had arrived, the older woman had given her a choice -- become a mail order bride or find a means to support herself in Chicago. But either way, she must leave the orphanage.
An anthology of Mail Order Bride & Christian Romance... Caleb Morgan explained that he was on his way back home to the Massen Valley with his daughter following a family visit. Just to fill the anxious silence, Abigail told him about how she had arranged to marry a rancher in Holmestown by mail order, and that she had brought a friend with her in the hopes of finding her someone as well.
Fortunately, the man did not ask any questions about Miriam, as Abigail was still not sure how much of the story she was able to share.
When they reached the large, wraparound porch of the hotel, the man paused. Abigail halted too, spying a figure sitting out on the grass. In the light of the sunset, she could also see a small child, sitting on the woman's lap.
"That's my friend," she said to Mr Morgan, speaking quietly without intending to.
Perhaps it was Abigail's lowered tone, or perhaps the way that, even from over here, it was plain that the little girl was giving all her attention to Miriam ...

Twelve thousand years ago along the Pacific Coast, generations of hunting to feed an expanding population were depleting the Indian's resources. Forests that were once rich in deer and elk, took longer to make the kills needed to feed the tribes. Blocked from migrating eastward were mountain ranges, a forbidden place inhabited by packs of dire wolves as large as Caucasian Mountain dogs. Filled with the lore of rumored evil, the tribes halted at the natural barrier unable to go any further.
Fiercely aggressive, they are now at war among themselves, a danger that could easily be left behind. However, facing the unknown presented its own dangers.
