After the Civil War claims her brother’s life, Miss Caroline Rose Kennedy searches for a new beginning. Atlanta only reminds her of past sorrows and family secrets, but learning of her cousin’s happy marriage arranged by a mail-order-bride agency brings a ray of hope. Perhaps Miss Milton could arrange a suitable match for her in Minnesota, too.

In spite of her mother’s disapproval, Caroline travels to Pelican Rapids to meet her groom. She brings her grandmother’s tattered quilt as a reminder of home, gathering patches along her travels to repair the treasured family heirloom.

Upon her arrival in Pelican Rapids, Caroline’s plans unravel. Her journey to find a new beginning leads her down an unexpected path, testing her faith in ways she never imagined. Can God use her unraveled dreams to create a beautiful patchwork for the future?

In this second installment in the Brides of Pelican Rapids Series, come on an adventurous ride through the western frontier with Caroline. Be encouraged by her story of healing, faith and courage.

Marilyn's thoughts:   This mail-order bride story is a page turner from the start. Caroline’s story is filled with disappointment, struggles, new beginnings and truly seeing God’s hand upon her life.

There are plenty of twists and turns along with the uniqueness of how she initially met her future groom unknowingly in St. Paul, MN.


The story is well developed with historical terms being used. The complexity of travel, gang members, injury, a new home and family made this a pleasant story.


I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author as a winner from a Facebook party and was under no obligation to write a review. I have shared my own opinion.
