Blog Tour: Love Finds You in Lonesome Praire, Montana

*Fall in Love with Lonesome Prairie Contest*

Summerside Press offers a line of romance novels based on American towns and cities with fun names and interesting histories called Love Finds You. Authors Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss offer up Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie, Montana.

Tricia is the author of several books, including Night Song and Dawn of a Thousand Nights, both past winners of the American Christian Fiction Writers' (ACFW) Book of the Year Award for Long Historical Romance. Ocieanna is a published writer and edited six of Tricia's historical novels.

Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie, Montana is the second book I read in the Love Finds You series. In 1889, Julia Cavanaugh rides the orphan train to deliver girls in her care to new families. After the final stop in Montana, Julia plans to head back east. But when she gets to Lonesome Prairie, she discovers she has been purchased as a "bride" by a miner.

The authors do a good job at bringing Lonesome Prairie to life, weaving together the realities of orphan trians, mail-order brides, circuit preachers and the isolation of life on the prairie. Besides Julia's dilemma, there are interesting subplots that move the story along.

For a glimpse inside the book, you can read the first chapter.
