Mail Order Brides of Sanctuary Book 2
STORY-LINE HIS BROTHER’S BRIDE BY GEORGE H. MCVEY:
In His Brother’s Bride by George H. McVey, the reader finds Greg, Glen, and Lyla’s story. Lyla, with no prospects of marriage in Philadelphia, answers Glen Williams letter for a mail order bride. As you know from Book 1, The Pastor’s Replacement Bride, the Ladies Aid Society of the church had Pastor Bryce write back east for good Christian women who would like to correspond with upstanding men in Sanctuary, Montana Territory; with matrimony in mind.
Lyla answers Glen’s letter; monies are sent to pay her way west, and off she goes on what she thought would be an adventure. Lyla thought everything would be wonderful, a fine adventure ending in marriage and love for her and Glen. Lyla’s outgoing, talkative, and adventurous. Glen’s beyond shy; cold, rude and closed off, he’s unable to talk comfortably to people, especially women; he would rather be on the farm plowing or with the animals and plants.
When his twin brother, Greg, absent for four years, shows up as the stage comes in, his mother knows there’s going to be trouble. These two have always tried to out do each other. Greg’s tired of the cowboy life, he’s ready to start his own ranch, and maybe start a family. He’s immediately smitten with Lyla when she comes off the stage. Glen, plowing at the farm, didn’t even bother to come meet the stage to Lyla’s horror. Taking to her to supper, at his mother insistence, he’s uncommunicative and rude.
