    One thought on “Alma's Mail Order Husband”

    1. This was the stupidest book I have ever read. Stupid storyline. Stupid characters. I wish I could go back in time and never read it.

Alma decides to get a mail order husband, Jude. He arrives and things go in all different directions. Her father thinks he is someone else and Jude tries to force his ideas.Jude came across as very harsh to me concerning the women.

    4. This is a clean historical western romance. It didn't have much of a plot and I felt sorry for their old, crippled father. The three sisters have been running the ranch and living as cow punchers since their father's accident. When Alma, the oldest, sends for a mail order husbands it starts to change things. I thought the girls were a little naive and I would have liked more character development. Not sure if I'll read more of the series or not.

    5. Accepting DifferencesThis was a switch with a mail order husband. Jude and Alma were drawn to each other right away. The two sisters and disabled father took longer to accept how things must change. All of them lived in a small one room dugout and that made it harder. It was a good read.

    6. This story had a different flavor to it with it being the husband that was mail-order. Interesting opinions he had about how things should be done. All of the characters have their own interesting quirks.

    7. Great story but ended too soon. have to read next instlment. Gives new meaning to needing a change in your life. Three sisters all used to doing the same thing every day until one marries and everything changes. Loved it. need to read more of this author

    8. Mail Order Husband????Really??? A Mail Order Husband?????Yep, thats right and his wife is set in her own ways of running the family cattle ranch with her sisters. Can Jude change their minds or will he succumb and learn their ways??

    9. I have read other things by Whitsby but this was not my favorite. Strange setting, strange characters, strange book. I'll not be reading this series.

    10. HusbandThis book was ok. The characters are interesting and the story line was ok. It will be interesting to read about the other sisters.
