Hannah Garrison leaves her Mississippi home as a mail-order bride, expecting to meet her prospective husband in Kansas. Instead, she’s taken to Chicago, abducted by a notorious gang, and sold to a brothel. She attempts a daring escape, and a handsome stranger stops her pursuers long enough for her to make a get-away on the next train out. The train takes her to Pelican Rapids. When Ella Milton offers her a job as maid on her farm, Hannah believes she’s found a safe refuge for now, but she knows her pursuers will be searching for her and fears she may have put her new friends in danger.

Agent Vince Logan leaves the Pinkerton Agency and heads for Pelican Rapids to help Ella Milton’s son with the wheat harvest. He also hopes match-maker, Ella, can find him a bride to take to his newly purchased farm in Dakota Territory. He’s astonished to find Ms. Milton’s new maid, Hannah, is the young woman he’d seen running from thugs in Chicago. He convinces Hannah to help him bring the gang leaders to justice. As their relationship deepens and danger comes closer, will they risk all for love?

Marilyn's thoughts:   




Hannah’s Last Hope is a spellbinding read filled with history along with activities that could easily be happening today in society. Elaine Manders weaves an action packed story filled with deceit, mystery, kidnappings, faith and God’s goodness in this historical mail-order bride story.


Hannah was oblivious to the pervasiveness of her kidnappers until her discovery in Chicago. Vince, a Pinkerton Detective ready to resign, saw her desperation as she was trying to escape. An unexpected trip to Pelicans Rapids brought Hannah to matchmaker Ella Milton’s home. Will Hannah be safe or will she be discovered since Vince had unsuccessfully been able to solve the mysterious disappearance of mail-order brides for Mrs. Crenshaw.


I received a complimentary e-copy of this novella from the author and was under no obligation to post a review. I have shared my own opinion.


 I have read each story by Elaine Manders in the Brides of Pelican Rapids series with each story being filled with dimensional characters, scenes, dialogues, mystery, faith and romance. I look forward to reading her next release.
